Today was created by the European Wind Energy Association in 2007 to bring awareness of the efforts to harness wind power to light our homes and cities with. There is little doubt the idea is a good one even though its always going to be only a part of our energy consumption problem. We all pollute the air around us, every country in the world. Those that cry the most about the pollution are generally those that create the most pollution. I applaud the efforts of those wanting to bring down our thumb print on the environment but until we can get some of the worst offenders to go along with it, wind power (While a really good idea) will never answer our needs.
How to celebrate – Build a wind tower on your property and cut down on your use of energy. Remember how the world was when we had sailing ships instead of ships with engines. Do your part to cut back on energy use.
