Gone with the Wind

Using wind turbines has been a major trend in alternative energy. Unfortunately, research from the University of Texas at Austin is looking at how the rising temperatures caused by global warming are reducing wind speeds, making turbines an uncertain investment. Winds occur when there is a strong temperature contrast, but with increasing temperatures, the discrepancy is decreasing. But researchers state that this data shouldn’t discourage wind turbine use, rather we should invest now, to utilize wind potential.
