A Wind of Change is Coming for American Climate Action

God answered Job's cry with a 'whirlwind' of esoteric knowledge (Job 38:1), elevating him to a higher plane of wisdom; and once again, He is answering humankind's plea with a gust. Recent studies found that wind (and solar) energy usage increased drastically in 2014, a further indication that American citizens are learning from the wind.

Admittedly, wind technology is still a long-way from being the primary source of energy production in America, but its growth of over 13951 megawatts is an indication of great things to come.

God has given us a tremedous ability to change our ways with the power of wind, so let's harness that opportunity and act for the climate.

Here’s How Much Faster Wind and Solar Are Growing Than Fossil Fuels

By Chris Mooney for The Washington Post

There’s been a lot of positive news about clean energy lately. For instance, we’ve reported that from 2008 to the present, wind and solar energy capacity in the United States has tripled.

Now, a new report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration makes a similar point. It finds that the electricity generated from wind and solar grew a lot faster than electricity generated by fossil fuels last year. In fact, solar more than doubled, and wind outgrew all other sources.

“I think the story that renewable generation is up from wind and solar and other sources is certainly the story to tell,” said Emily Williams, deputy director of industry data and analysis at the American Wind Energy Association, which heralded the report.
