    “We shouldn't be surprised that extracting wind energy on a global scale is going to have a noticeable effect. ... There is really no such thing as a free lunch,” said David Keith, a professor of energy and the environment at the University of Calgary and lead author of the report, which appeared in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    Specifically, if wind generation were expanded to the point where it produced one-10th of today's energy, the models say cooling in the Arctic and a warming across the southern parts of North America should happen.


I called it.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Its hot enough here for November, so let me be the first to say they can keep their wind power because I don't need the South getting ANY HOTTER!

And yet the key part of this study is how many wind generators would probably be needed to make a difference.

We're not going to change over night, and we're not going to go all out wind power. We're always going to get our energy from a large diversity of sources, including solar and tidal when the technologies become better.

In the mean time, the drive for wind power is going at a pace that allows for corrections if need be.

And again, a wind power company is far more likely to do things in an environmentally sensitive manner then a coal, nuclear or oil company, who consistently seek to block further environmental regulations.



Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Wait, but isn't the Arctic warming up right now? See, so this will cool it back down! And we'll be all balanced up again! We rule!

OK, after the 2-day swing of regular being cheaper than E85 a couple days ago... Today at many local stations, regular was $1.99, diesel was $1.97. E85 now down to $1.49 BTW at Schnucks.
