The use of wind power is expanding rapidly around the world, and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions estimates that it could account for as much as 35 percent of global electricity production by 2035. Through a narrative-driven pro/con format—supported by relevant facts, quotes, anecdotes, and full-color illustrations—this title examines the future of wind power. Topics include: Is Wind Power Affordable? How Does Wind Power Impact the Environment? Can Wind Power Ever Replace Fossil Fuels? and Should Government Play a Role in Developing Wind Power?
