Source Of Energy Problem Of Global Warming
1,596 words... one saying goes - the gust of wind, created by the sway of butterfly's wings, can develop into a storm. At the same time, it opens a theoretical possibility for us to influence weather, for as long as we know all weather-inducing variables. There is also another way of achieving greater reliability of wind harvesting, as the source of energy. The article Wind Power Gathers Speed, which can be found on the site of Australian Academy of Science, gives us an insight on how it can be accomplishe...
