New Study Claims Wind Farms Contribute to Global Warming
- Nov 9, 2018 4:35 pm GMT
A new study from Harvard University claims that wind farms contribute to the phenomenon of global warming. The researchers claim that in the short term, wind power could be a bigger contributing factor to global warming than natural gas.
Findings of the Study
Harvard researchers claim that wind turbines tend to redistribute heat as a result of mixing the boundary layer.
While the phenomenon is localized, mostly due to the fact that the presence of wind farms are limited to certain regions in the country, the effects could be magnified if we were to adopt wind as the primary energy source for our country.
