    According to industry experts, in the United States, we have reached peak wind, every easy accessible site has been developed.

    All the best sites for wind development are already exploited.

    Sorry to let the air out of the bag.

    There are stories on the web I can link to if people take interest in this thread.

    It is a fact, all the good sites are taken, peak wind has arrived, so much for being renewable.

    No amount of technology can help develop wind.

    But I though wind energy lasts forever, its renewable, its magic, Wind Mills grow on trees, a renewable resource.

    Something else to be addressed, cap and trade has not been passed so why does this article state energy credits are needed?

    Wind energy is only here because the government has forced wind energy on us by law. It is the government of Tyranny that forces the people to give our money to the elites in power.

    All the best sites for oil and coal development are already exploited.

    Sorry to let the air out of the (wind)bag.

    That is common sense, oil exploration has largely been achieved with very old technology, now the newer technology is finding oil that is harder to find.

    So are you thinking we will find a new technology to find windier areas?

    We are finding new small resevoirs. No new fields like those in Saudi Arabia. Not only that, the energy ratio to get the oil from alternative sources, such as bitumen sands, are 1 to 14, down to 1 to 4 for in situ recovery. For the oil that we have traditionally depended on, the ratio was 1 to 100.

    Hubbert's Peak Oil is alive and well. The economys depending on oil will not be so lucky.

    There are huge areas of unexploited wind. All we need to is to put a grid out where the energy is.
