A study from Carnegie Institution for Science, led by Kate Marvel of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has revealed that there is enough wind power to meet all of the world’s energy demands. The US team say that with the help of airborne wind turbines—those that convert steadier and faster high-altitude winds into energy—the planet would be able to generate even more power than with ground- and ocean-based units alone.

    There is no shortage of energy that the earth gives freely. We just need to change the way we think, and learn to love technologies that we see. Oil wells are out of our sight, the wind turbines we live with.

    well, the question is really if there is enough nature to sacrifice to windmill plants. Coming from europe we are dying in windmills. People are moveing out of their homes the best they can away from the noise and clipping of sunbeams. In Germany they just announced that their windfarms where killing 200.000 rare bats a year. In usa 440.000 prey birds are killed each year by mills. Lets design better then that!

    Hope they didnt spend much time or money on this study, to figure out something that was already common knowledge.
