Wind a Risk to Wind Turbines
Giving green energy proponents something to be happy
about current Energy Department policy is to have twenty percent of
the U.S. electricity to come from wind in 18 years. A sixthed part
of that goal it to be achieved by way of offshore
wind turbines, However in a twist of laughable irony researchers
at Carnegie Mellon have shown that hurricanes (high speed wins) pose
a significant risk to these turbines toppling up to half of them.
The fact that each of these wind farms can cost $175,000,000 it is a
significant concern about the unintended expenses of such sources of
If President Obama were serious about developing a source of clean energy he would back up more practical developments like muon catalyzed fusion. But isn't nuclear power dangerous? you may ask First of you need to separate nuclear reactors from nuclear bombs, while they use the same type of energy nuclear reactors ad bombs work totally differently such that there is no way you can turn nuclear reactor into a nuclear bomb. Second un like fission power plants, muon catalyzed fusion power plants would not produces radioactive waste. The radioactive waste from fission power plants is largely in form of spent fuel rods. On the other hand by product of muon catalyzed fusion is non radioactive helium making it a truly clean source of clean energy.
