An episode of Science Friday talking about how wind power is plentiful.
So many cool things learned from this episode:
Research shows that bird kills due to wind turbines would be less than from coal and gas. One rare-earth element is necessary to build turbines: Neodymium to make the generators efficient. Worldwide there is 7x the amount we’d need if we were to build 4 million turbines. The Bush administration did a technical study that showed we could quite easily get to 20% of our power from wind by 2030.
Might be helpful to regularly review this, to ensure we’re able to detect artful dodges.
