New study: Enough wind to power the world

A USA Today article reprinted in the Sept. 11 edition of The Arizona Republic reports on a new study that determined there is "enough energy in the wind to satisfy the entire world's energy needs" several times over.

The study, which appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is based on a computer weather model and reports that about 4 million wind turbines placed in high-wind areas across the globe could provide more than half the world's power.

Seems as though 99% of the wind comes from the gum flappers that are highlighted on this blog.
Oh, that was too easy.
