Nature & Energy

-- Quote of the Day --
"The old Lakota was wise. He knew that man's heart away from nature becomes hard, he knew that lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to lack of respect for humans, too."

In keeping with the topic of alternative energy today, I'd like to offer some exciting news about wind energy.
 
Wind turbines generating power of up to 20 megawatts are now 'realistic', according to a report, released at the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) 2011 conference in Brussels. According to the Up Wind Project, the technology is improving so much that they can now get wind turbines to 20 megawatt (most produce 5). Using rotor diameters of around 200 meters on today's standard five-megawatt turbines would also allow huge increases in power generation. The report also predicts wind energy will meet 26-34% of Europe's electricity demand power by 2030.
