Wind can be a very significant power provider in the United States, especially in the Midwest. Environmental lawyer and writer Philip Warburg talks about wind as a resource, including how it relates to the economy and climate change. He spoke at Seattle's Town Hall on December 4, 2012. The talk was introduced by Denis Hayes, CEO of the Bullitt Foundation and coordinator of the first Earth Day.
If you've driven through Eastern Washington lately, you've probably noticed the wind turbines. For some, they're a blight; for others, they look like the future. To Philip Warburg, that future looks bright. He writes about it in his book, "Harvest the Wind: America's Journey to Jobs, Energy Independence and Climate Stability." He'll try to blow away Ross Reynolds with his story of wind's power.
