Wind energy and fossil energy – This is a long blog. But richly informative if you want to know more about the debates on global warming, fossil energy, and renewables.

WHATS IN THIS BLOG: • The shale revolution. • Dependence on foreign energy. • Manufacturing renaissance. • Prolonged use of fossil fuels. • Urgency of global warming. • Greenhouse gas emissions – main sources. • Reducing greenhouse gases. • Renewables and fossil fuels in Texas.
