It’s Gust About Time: Harnessing the Wind for Our Energy Needs

9/19/2011; 49 minutes

Can we produce much of the energy we need from clean, renewable sources? Jeff Mirocha, atmospheric scientist and the technical leader of LLNL's wind energy research group, and Sonia Wharton, post-doctorate scholar in the Climate/Carbon Science Group, argue that wind energy can lead the way. Learn why the wind blows, where the winds blow the best, how energy can be generated from the wind, and how science and engineering can ensure a reliable and abundant supply of green, renewable energy to power our future.
