The planet is running out of fossil fuels, but wind power may be the answer to the energy crisis. The power of the wind is harnessed through turbines that generate electricity, and this type of energy has many benefits.
Wind power is green. It does not produce any greenhouses gasses or pollution. Clean energy sources are superior for the health of the environment and of people when compared to traditional fossil fuels.
Wind energy is also sustainable. Unlike fossil fuels, the electricity supplied by the Read the rest of this entry »
The mid and southwestern areas of the United States have known about the natural and renewable source of energy that the wind provides. In these wide open spaces the wind has been used to pump water, charge batteries and, recently, generate electricity to feed back into the power grid of the nation. From wind turbines set on the ground to larger, utility scaled turbines place on tall towers the use of this green type of energy seems bright.
On the prairies and fields of the Midwest the wind blows almost constantly. The same is Read the rest of this entry »
Every month, when the dead tree, paper bill arrives from the power company, I’m reminded that fossil fuels are, well, fossils, relics of an era not fully gone but slowly, surely passing.
I think about my children, and foresee their children. I’m 52. When I was 10 no one, save for science fiction fans, ever talked about, let alone thought we needed, alternative energy sources. In just over half a lifetime, the facts have radically changed.
Newspapers, magazines, TV documentaries and websites hammer home our need to perfect Read the rest of this entry »
Wind energy offers a clean alternative to more conventional resources that can result in substantial pollution or other environmental and economic issues. Harnessing the wind to create a cheap and abundant supply of power can provide a number of important benefits that can help reduce the issues and problems that fossil fuel sources have created. Learning more about wind power, how it works and what role it will have to play in the future can be an important part of any effort to find and employ more sustainable alternatives and energy solutions.
