Wind power: A quiet solution to climate change
That's the word from Adam Scott, Green Energy Program Manager for the Canadian group Environmental Defence, who penned an article on the topic in yesterday's Huffington Post.
Comments Scott, "Tires on a road, two-stroke whines from snowmobiles, motorcycles and jet-skis, diesel trucks, barking dogs, neighbours, airplanes, trains, music, construction, air conditioners, refrigerators, dishwashers, power tools -- the list of human-created sounds is endless. It's a bit confusing then that one of [the] quieter things we build -- windmills -- are said to be the subject of great handwringing and upset."
Scott's article is accompanied by a nice 39-second video that drives the point home.
