According to the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, about 2.3 per cent of America’s power is generated by wind. But wind power is becoming wildly popular all over the world. What would happen if a company put up so many wind turbines that they actually changed the climate on Earth? That’s the subject of this week’s podcast.
Wind turbines are being built all over the world, and China is particularly ambitious with their wind farms — according to the BBC the country plans to build enough turbines to pull 200,000 megawatts. To put that into perspective, according to the Global Wind Energy Council, in 2014 all the wind-power harnessing devices in the world could generate 369,597 megawatts.
