Wind power is real and sustainable
Wind power is the most promising source of renewable energy and can significantly reduce global CO2 emissions.
Moreover, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) says wind energy is a better investment since reserves are unlimited,
can be produced locally and are pollution-free.
"Wind energy is the most attractive solution to the world's energy challenge. It is clean and fuel-free. Moreover, wind
is indigenous and enough wind blows across the globe
The environmental impact of wind farms.
Wind farms have been often criticized due to their noise, to the visual impact on landscape and for killing birds.
The problem of noise seems now solved due the more recent, "almost silent" power generators.
The offshore wind farms are a partial solution to the first two problems, too.
According to WWF :"Even though the construction and operation of wind turbines does have an impact on the natural
environment - for instance through its visual impact, or some bird kill by turning rotors - WWF argues that these impacts need
to be seen in the context of the massive environmental damage caused by the use of conventional energy sources."
