More on Fox spinning the wind turbine (and bullies): From Treehugger: Wind Farms Cause Global Warming, Fox News Says From Care2: Bully: The Movie and the Movement And more detail … [Read full article]
A new study has found that land surface temperatures underneath and around large wind farms in west-central Texas have increased as a result of the introduction of the wind … [Read full article]
By Andrew Myers Politics aside, most energy experts agree that cheap, clean, renewable wind energy holds great potential to help the world satisfy energy needs while reducing harmful greenhouse … [Read full article]
One of our readers over on CleanTechnica shared this awesome post below with us in the comments of an article about community wind power last week. I thought you … [Read full article]
Many years ago, wind power was commonly used for domestic purposes. Don Cervantes tilted at windmills that were being used for domestic purposes. In the British colonial era, wind … [Read full article]
Energy costs just keep on rising, with only short respites that allow us to stay complacent to pending environmental and energy shortage crises.
This has an effect on all of us every day. Even if we don’t drive and we power our house with clean energy sources like wind and solar energy, which use “free” fuel, the prices of everything are affected by rising dirty energy prices. Transportation of goods and electricity costs rise for most people and businesses, and those costs are passed on to everyone.
But, if we jump on the clean, green energy bandwagon now, at least, we can at least revel in our own electricity and transportation savings.
Now, you may or may not know, other than working on Planetsave, the place I spend most of my time is working on CleanTechnica, our sister site dedicated to covering topics such as wind energy, solar energy, and energy efficiency. I actually was not much of a tech guy just a few years ago, but I started writing on there two summers ago and slowly became obsessed. Now, I’m considered an expert in the field.
The benefit of wind turbines is going to be a very long debate that carries on for many years, but new research led by a researcher at the US Department … [Read full article]
So, we’ve covered solar energy and microhydro energy in this Going Green Tips series. Here’s one more small-scale energy option: micro-wind. Like microhydro, micro-wind isn’t an option many people think … [Read full article]
Its official name is Strata SE1, and it’s the first “skyscraper” to integrate wind turbines into its original facade. The 42 story, energy-producing building is hopefully representative of a not-too-distant-future trend in large-scale, urban structure design and development.
