Gamesa’s Director of Media Relations Michael Peck, in a reference to oil, recently wrote “Nobody’s child has to fight overseas to protect access to wind power.”
Mr. Peck thereby implies that industrial windfarms will lessen our dependence on foreign oil. In reality, less than 2 percent of the oil consumed in the U.S. is used to produce electricity. The U.S. actually exports more oil than it uses to produce electricity. Industrial windfarms will have no effect on our consumption of foreign oil.
