Really, shouldn't we invest heavily in wind and solar power? Wouldn't it be wonderful to tell all the countries that sit on huge oil reserves to eat their oil? Just imagine what wind and solar power would mean to air and water quality. I'm sure there would be a few unlucky birds that get tangled up in the turbines, but they'll learn to stay away from those big white turning things after a while.

Wind turbines generate power in San Gorgonio near Palm Spring California. In 2004, wind power became the least expensive form of new power generation, dipping below the cost per kilowatt-hour of coal-fired plants. Wind power is growing faster than any other form of electrical generation.
