Giant offshore wind farms could do more than provide electricity for major cities. They could suck the life and the power out of hurricanes barreling toward those cities, too, according to Stanford University research presented Monday at the American Geophysical… Read More
A new attempt to get some firm idea of how damaging wind power plants are to bird populations in the United States suggests that the trend toward taller towers could be leading to more deaths. On the other hand, the… Read More
A Maine town has voted to allow the siting of three ginormous wind turbines on private lands on a mountain within the town limits. It’s the second time in the past year in New England that we’ve seen a wind-power… Read More
