    Tall gleaming white towers and intimidating gleaming white blades, creating energy from out of thin air – what could be more wholesome for the environment, wildlife, humankind, and the planet?! This book will help you to have a better understanding of the full impact of commercial wind power on the environment. Read this book and see if the facts mesh with your beliefs!

    “Green” Energy from Commercial Wind Power – Really? What are you thinking when you hear “green energy”? Benign for the environment and wildlife around it right? With Commercial Wind Energy, that assumption may be wrong. This book will help you to have a better understanding of the full impact of commercial wind power on the environment. With their tall gleaming white towers and intimidating gleaming white blades, creating energy from out of thin air – what could be more wholesome for the environment, wildlife, humankind, and the planet?! When I first heard about green energy alternatives, I was studying biology as an undergraduate 35 years ago, and it was considered the same, true win-win deal for people and wildlife. This topic should be interesting to most people in the US today. Why? Because there is a strong push to sell green energy technology to the American public. The concept is a good one, but like all things that seem to be getting traction or have a good image, many free riders are jumping on board. It’s not good enough for us to just parrot the phrase, “I’m using a low carbon footprint source of power, therefore I’m a good and moral person.” That is the behavior of sheep, not thinking people. It is important for you to learn about the many impacts of this technology when done on a large commercial scale in wild areas. Before we give a new technology a green light we need to have a transparent view of how that technology will impact our environment and our society.

    For energy to be “green” it should not have a negative environmental, particularly for sensitive species. In difficult economic times it should also have a broad positive economic impact. If is not done right there will be a few big economic winners, and millions of losers in this high stakes game.

    As someone who has had an intense interest in wildlife and the environment since I was a young boy, wind power was something I just had to get behind. Is it still the perfect alternative energy technology for America in the 21st Century? Dig into this book and learn more about commercial wind technology today and make up your own mind!
