The Wind in the Willows: Kenneth Grahame and Neopaganism - The Wind in the Willows: Kenneth Grahame and Neopaganism                 The beauty of the English countryside--cultivated or wild, pastoral or primeval, it was an endless source of inspiration for eighteenth-century Romantic poets. Such notables as Wordsworth, Keats, and Shelley envisioned ancient and exotic Hellenic gods in familiar, typically British settings. Douglas Bush says of Keats, "For him the common sights of Hampstead Heath could suggest how poets had first conceived of fauns and dryads, of Psyche and Pan and Narcissus and Endymion" ( Pagan Myth 46)....   [tags: Wind in the Willows]

The Sky is the Limit For Wind Power - Owen Paterson said “The relationship between renewable energy sources and the communities we expect to host them must be appropriate and sustainable and, above all, acceptable to local people.” For that reason, environmentalists have long assumed that wind power is a much more efficient and sustainable way to generate electricity. However, non-supporters of wind power state otherwise because there are a few negative outcomes to using wind power. Ultimately, when it came to the nature of wind power the basic assumption was that it is beneficial to the environment and communities....   [tags: Renewable Energy Sources, Wind Power]

In 1891, the Dane Poul La Cour developed the first electrical output wind machine to incorporate the aerodynamic design principles used in the best European tower mills. By 1920, the two dominant rotor configurations had both been tried and found to be inadequate for generating appreciable amounts of electricity. (Wind Power Development) Europe got involved quickly with the wind turbine and started to make superior models of wind turbines....   [tags: solar energy, protons, power] 741 words

The Pros and Cons of Wind Energy - As awareness of global warming is raised, many alternative actions have been taken to help prevent this problem. Wind energy is one alternative solution that we use today in our society to fight global warming. However, there are many people who are sceptical about how effective this method is. Is wind energy an important part of fighting global warming? Global warming is the increase in the Earth's temperature caused by human activities, such as burning coal, oil and natural gas. This releases gases such as: carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Some people are very sceptical about how reliable wind is as a source of energy....   [tags: Global Warming, Fossil Fuels] 1130 words

Win with Wind Energy - Wind energy or wind power is the extraction of kinetic energy from wind and the conversion of it into mechanical energy. Man has harnessed the power of the wind for many centuries. Wind is a type of solar energy. The sun heats the earth’s surface and the warmer air begins to rise. Cooler air flows into the area below the rising air causing wind. The Egyptians utilized the wind as early as 5000 B.C. by attaching sails to propel boats across the Nile River. For many years sailing ships on the open seas were powered by capturing the wind with sails....   [tags: Kinetic Energy, Mechanical Energy]

Factors of Wind Energy - Wind Introduction Wind is created by temperature gradients , created by differences in heat received on the surface of the earth as a result of incoming radiation from the Sun. These gradients depend on the angle of the incident sunlight, as well as the characteristics of the terrain and are vital for the formation of specific regional climates. Land and water masses have different heat capacities which lead to an uneven heating of the planet’s surface. As there are different temperatures in different regions due to the aforementioned reasons, bulk motion of air molecules is created as the density of air changes with temperature, leading to concentration gradients and pressure gradient...   [tags: renewable, intermittency, biofuels]
