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

Homeowners in Massachusetts can sell back electricity

Green Life Smart Life

They must do so by installing solar panels on their roofs or having wind turbines put on their property. During dark cloudy days when their solar panels may not generate anything, as well as no windy days for those choosing to put a wind turbine on their property. Changing the rate in which the property owner sell his/her rate back to the utility company will hopefully increase the amount of property owners that install solar panels and wind turbines on their property.

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. Gordon knew the Netherlands was generating renewable energy from wind turbines miles offshore, and “the New England coastline had similar geography and population density to Northern Europe, so offshore wind made sense,” he says. Still, it has dramatically changed the landscape for offshore wind power in the United States.

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.
