UK to Harness Wind Energy

Britain looks to wind power to cut CO2 emissions.

Though it’s often to blame for a dreaded bad hair day or a stressful car ride, wind is Britain’s answer to cutting carbon dioxide emissions. With the Renewable Energy Strategy, released Wednesday, July 15, the UK government plans to quadruple the number of wind turbines over the next decade. Part of the plan may include 4,000 turbines placed on high ground for all to see, and 3,000 turbines built at sea set to cut 34 percent of CO2 emissions by 2020. At the moment, the UK boasts 2,327 onshore wind turbines that supply enough wattage to power 840 homes. Perhaps with the release of the Renewable Energy Strategy the UK’s carbon dioxide woes will be gone with the wind.
