Wind Power

This Stanford University study quantifies the global potential for wind power generation. Scroll down and view the map showing North American wind power potential. It is entirely possible for the US to generate its entire electrical demand with wind power. Given this fact, it is all the more ironic that we continue to heavily subsidize the oil industry to satisfy wealthy corporate donors. The latest energy bill included 2.7 billion in gifts to the oil companies and 500 million in grants for research. Without these types of subsidies and costly wars to gain access to foreign reserves, oil would be overtaken by wind and hydrogen. Once again the free market provides the answers, its too bad America is run by corrupt corporations who fear the market.
