Renewable-energy champion Philip Warburg offers a detailed, unified, well-researched report on wind power and the contributions it can make to America’s energy future. getAbstract finds that he presents his case for wind power with persuasive facts and figures, as well as careful reasoning and a good dose of passion. Is he totally objective? Well, maybe not...he has an argument to make, and he makes it vividly, in hopes that his inspirational report will persuade even ardent fossil-fuel and nuclear-energy advocates to harness America’s wind-power potential.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why fossil fuels and nuclear power are not good long-term options for US energy,
- Why wind power is an ideal alternative, and
- What the US will have to do to build its wind-power capacity to fulfill 20% of the nation’s energy needs by 2030.
