In this economic crisis, the simplest solution is [probably] the best. I’m referring to a study done in Iowa about wind-powered energy. This study indicates that if we employ wind-generated power, our entire power grid will have to be updated.
That also happens to be our answer! Updating the nation’s power grid would require additional labor (jobs), both skilled and unskilled. It would cut our CO2 emissions and our dependence on outside oil sources. We could actually bail ourselves out! We could save our own homes, provide economic drive in the right direction, and power companies would still make a profit!
What is right in front of us is always the hardest to see.
