In a casual conversation, I was asked why wind energy is a bad idea. Once again, I realized that a one or two-word answer could not convey a readily understandable and accurate picture of wind energy.
This article will try to provide such an answer in a few hundred words, where one or two won’t suffice.
There are essentially four reasons why wind energy is a bad idea.
- It is unreliable
- It is very, very expensive
- It produces electricity when it isn’t needed
- It has environmental issues
