People Like Wind Power (Exclusive Video)

This is a video I recorded at January’s Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week* that I’m finally getting around to sharing. Following up on two excellent wind energy articles from Josh highlighting the low cost of wind energy, it seemed like a good time to finally share this.

Basically, despite a lot of hype contrary to the facts, wind energy is heavily supported by the public. People like wind power. Furthermore, the economic benefits of wind power are huge. Just two wind farms in Texas, for example, resulted in almost $2 billion in economic activity. Granted, they were big wind farms, but the point is clear: wind farms create jobs and local economic activity.

*Full Disclosure: My trip to Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week was hosted by Masdar, the host of the event. However, I had full control over the content I produced.
