One More Plus for Wind Energy
I forgot to post something in the earlier post - a very interesting Letter to the Editor of Businessweek points out how Wind Energy generation is superior to fossil fuel based power - windmills do not use water in addition to remaining smoke free. Every coal, oil or nuclear powered powerplant has to use tens of thousands of gallons of water for cooling processes. That is one lesser resource that more widespread wind energy would use were it exploited to the fullest. Excellent point, isn't it?
