    1. 1. Wind Energy Why it is misused and underestimated By Ryan Franda
    2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Most promising </li></ul><ul><li>Most room to improve </li></ul><ul><li>People think water energy is better </li></ul><ul><li>Water energy is good, but cannot improve </li></ul>
    3. 3. How it works <ul><li>Windmills </li></ul><ul><li>Use motors to turn the energy from the turning turbine into electricity </li></ul>
    4. 4. Amount used <ul><li>In 2008, America used for 1.3% of energy </li></ul><ul><li>In 2007, California used for 2.3% of energy. </li></ul><ul><li>In 2002 and ever since then, Denmark uses for 19% of energy. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Pros <ul><li>It is perfectly clean, and does not admit any greenhouse gasses </li></ul><ul><li>It does not take up much land per windmill </li></ul><ul><li>It does not harm the environment </li></ul>
    6. 6. Cons <ul><li>It causes noise </li></ul><ul><li>It is not very reliable or efficient </li></ul><ul><li>People think the mills are dangerous </li></ul>
    7. 7. Why this doesn’t matter <ul><li>In a dessert, noise does not matter </li></ul><ul><li>If you have enough, you can count on at least a few spots to be windy </li></ul><ul><li>Turbines and mills are no more dangerous than a telephone pole, or a water tower, and crops can be grown almost right next to them. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Conclusion <ul><li>We can make at least 10% of our energy production from wind, and drastically decrease greenhouse gasses and fossil fuels. </li></ul><ul><li>Water power’s growth is not realistic anymore </li></ul><ul><li>Nuclear and ethanol are good, but nuclear is dangerous and we need corn for food. </li></ul><ul><li>Wind is the most realistic choice to invest in as a country </li></ul>
