ABSTRACT
The article offers information on wind turbines. In a recent research at Stanford University, it was found that 13 percent of the 8,000 locations tested around the world had winds of 6.9. meters per second or faster at 10 meters height, making wind power generation viable. In Michael Crichton's latest book "State of Fear," he called wind turbines bird guillotines, asserting that the rotating blades claim the lives of countless birds in the cause for renewable energy. According to the author, whether wind turbines are bird guillotines or the antidote to human-caused climate change, is still uncertain.
