One Answer to Carbon Woes: Blowin’ in the Wind May 20, 2008Posted by Sarah Todd in Environment, General.
An article in Salon points out,
“For under 2 cents a day per household, Americans could get 300 gigawatts of wind by 2030. That would:
- Reduce carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation by 25 percent in 2030.
- Reduce natural gas use by 11 percent.
- Reduce cumulative water consumption associated with electricity generation by 4 trillion gallons by 2030.
- Support roughly 500,000 jobs in the U.S.”
All we need is an administration that will let it happen.
