Michael Skelly on Wind Energy: Blowing Over Barriers

Multimedia with summary

Promoters and detractors of wind power have one point of agreement - both see the transmission lines that carry wind energy as inefficient and very expensive to build. If wind power is going to fulfill its potential as the natural, pristine and infinitely renewable energy source that it could be, this obstacle will have to be overcome.
