Wind Power could Warm Earth, Study Finds

Researchers say that Wind farms will cause more environmental impact than previously thought.

Wind farms are an important source of renewable energy. They generate electricity by removing energy from the wind. A switch from fossil fuels to wind energy could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and subsequent global warming. But wind farms also modify local climate and affect the transfer of energy, mass and moisture within the air. Therefore, large-scale wind farms can also lead to climate change.
