Out of thin air: Successful wind confab in Houston points up Texas’ growing role in alternative energy development | Chron.com – Houston Chronicle
Although it tops the nation in the volume of man-made greenhouse gas emissions fueling global warming, Texas has taken the lead in developing an antidote. From nearly zero a decade ago, electricity generated by wind constitutes more than 60 percent of new energy capacity in the Lone Star State.
With 5,300 megawatts of wind-generated electricity on line, Texas is ahead of the next biggest producing state, California, and is poised to supersede a number of nations in developing an energy source that is free of pollution and does not consume precious water, saving billions of gallons a year.
I recognize that in many parts of the country the large megawatt producing wind generators are not popular additions to the landscape. I guess my question is…Would you rather have a coal burning generation station? Maybe you would prefer a nuclear power plant? Me I’ll take a windmill.
