Many Farmers in rich and in poor countries have difficulty making ends meet. While the root of this problem, comes from many other sources. These sources are not likely to be resolved by wind turbines, But an interesting advantage would be that farmers and people with land can rent there land. Wind companies generally rent land just as gas companies do to put a pipeline in or get natural gas from the land
Wind turbines should be used as an alternative energy. The cost and effort that is needed to run a turbine is a fraction of the cost and effort used for fossil fuels. A farmer can easily produce a turbine and use the mechanical energy produced to run his farm. Because wind is a renewable energy, and is created because of the sun, there will not be a shortage of this energy, unlike fossil fuels. According to, Griffin, R. D, fossil fuels are formed from the fossilized remains of dead plants and animals. The burning of fossil fuels by humans is the largest source of emissions of carbon dioxide, which is one of the greenhouse gases that enhances radioactive forcing and contributes to global warming. (Fossil fuel –, Encyclopedia, 2007) Because of all the pollution that the fossil fuels are producing, wind, which is a clean air resource, will benefit the Earth because it is a nonpolluting source of energy (Griffin, R. D.)
However, the amounts of coal have significantly grown. According to Union of Concerned, the U.S. uses 85 percent of the current fuel use. The need to start using renewable energy that will not pollute the atmosphere and contribute to the rising greenhouse gas problem is essential.

Wind power has come a long way in the past decades. The key principles have changed little but the execution has changed immensely, wind is now safe, cheap, and reliable. Problems do exist, but are minor compared to present generation technologies. Wind is very clean and who would deny a...
