WIND ENERGY COMES OF AGE

A new guide to the global wind industry, by wind expert Paul Gipe, was out on May 12. The 560 page book, "Wind Energy Comes of Age," is published by John Wiley & Sons. Gipe chronicles wind's progress during the last decade, and gives an up-to-date status report on the industry worldwide. The book addresses the killing of golden eagles in California's Altamont Pass, the US Department of Energy's "failed research programme," the myth that wind is too costly and unreliable, why Europeans are less fearful of wind in their midst than Americans, self-styled environmental activists who oppose wind -- some with ties to the coal and nuclear industry -- and the US wind industry's troublesome occupational record.
