Wind Power Is Dying
While the U.S. is dumping billions of dollars into wind farms and onshore and offshore wind turbines, this energy source is being cast aside as a failure elsewhere in the world.

Wind Is Not Power at All (Part II – Power Density)
Wind is Not Power at All (Part III – Capacity Value)

The Answer, My Friend is NOT Blowing in the Wind
Believing in wind is a fool’s errand. The reasons are simple. Wind is costly, inefficient and erratic.
