SGC Admin: From our inbox to you…. A controversial topic for sure… However, wind does sound like a viable alternative energy source.. it just needs to be done right, and it looks like they are working on that… 🙂
Wind offers a healthy way to generate power

There’s no free ride when it comes to generating energy. Even the cleanest sources have environmental consequences. Materials for all power-generating facilities have to be obtained and transported, and infrastructure must be built, maintained and eventually decommissioned. Wind turbines take up space and can harm wildlife. Hydro floods agricultural land and alters water cycles.
That’s why conservation is the best way to reduce energy-consumption impacts. Reductions in energy use and investment in energy-efficiency technologies are so significant that the International Energy Agency refers to conservation as the “first fuel”.
No matter how good we get at conserving…
