Just in Time: Kenn Kaufman’s “A Season on the Wind” — a review

10,000 Birds

A Season on the Wind: Inside the World of Spring Migration is Kaufmann’s latest book, being published just in time for the North American northward migration in April and May – that time when, he says, “the migrants from the tropics have arrived in a rush, creating that glorious sense of diversity and abundance, the sense that anything is possible in the perfection of springtime.”. Example A, perfectly up to date, is the wind turbine. How blessed can one guy be?

Study: Wind Turbines Cause Temperature Changes On Ground

Eco Friendly Daily

Wind farms have been the center of debate for years, including the recent controversy regarding the offshore wind farm in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Wind farms have also come under debate regarding whether their locations can cause adverse health impacts or be too loud to tolerate. However, a new study concerns itself with the placement of wind farms due to temperature changes they can cause. Environment Wind Power

Study: Offshore Wind Energy Capable Of Powering East Coast

Eco Friendly Daily

According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the United States has at least 4,150 gigawatts of potential wind energy along the coastlines. Despite this, the country has yet to establish their first offshore wind farm, making them decades behind some European nations. The project expected to be the first, Cape Wind off of Massachusetts, is still facing legal battles and an unclear completion time. billion project would include 130 wind turbines.

State Of Virginia Looking To Be First In U.S. Offshore Wind Energy

Eco Friendly Daily

After years of struggling to become the first offshore wind farm in the United States, Cape Wind in Massachusetts is still battling to be first. After receiving governmental approval and the first federal leases for offshore wind in 2010, the farm is waiting to be built. Cape Wind is looking as though they will be the first utility-scale once operations begin at an unknown date. Wind Power

In addition to adding solar power to bases, they have also built two wind turbines on two different bases. A two megawatt wind turbine was built at a base in Wyoming and a 1.5 megawatt turbine was built in Massachusetts.

A project entitled Cape Wind is hoping to be the first offshore wind farm in the United States. The location selected is near the coast of Nantucket Sound in Massachusetts. The planned offshore wind farm would include 130 wind turbines and would begin construction in 2010. If all goes well the wind farm would be operational in 2011. Alternative Energy Wind Power

Who's Killing Renewable Energy?

Green (Living) Review

A promising offshore wind energy project has languished on the East Coast for 15 years—and its enemies range from a Koch brother to the Kennedys. In 2001, Jim Gordon, a Boston-based energy entrepreneur who played a critical role in the development of natural gas–fired power plants in the 1990s, was searching for a way to produce energy on the East Coast. He began working on what would become the Cape Wind Energy Project in Nantucket Sound, off the Massachusetts shore.

Clean Energy: Making Better Economic Sense and Keeping the Heat On During the Polar Vortex

Clean energy continues to make the news nationwide as solar and wind power continue expanding at an exponential rate. was in the grips of a sub-zero "Polar Vortex,"  wind energy kept the power on in Texas : Sufficient generation and higher wind output from West Texas wind farms boosted the state's electric supply Tuesday compared to Monday when the grid operator declared an emergency as power plants shut unexpectedly, reducing supply.

Big Clean Energy News Just Keeps Coming: "Solar is Most Economical Option," Says Energy CEO

Sierra Club Compass

On the heels of last week's release of carbon pollution safeguards from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which requires future power plants to deal with their climate-disrupting carbon pollution, news is rolling in from across the U.S. This week Xcel Energy announced it will triple the amount of solar power it offers while also adding another 450 megawatts of wind power. Wind prices, for example, are down 50 percent since 2009.
