Wind Power and Wildlife Issues in Kansas - Remember in Wizard of Oz how Dorothy was swept away by a tornado, and how tornados are massive wind storms. Well, it is no wonder they took the setting in Kansas. “Kansas has been ranked third in the nation for its potential wind resources” (Wind Power and Wildlife Issues in Kansas). Wind turbines have been placed all around Kansas, gathering wind to produce energy. Truth is it’s causing problems for animals and farmers. A great deal of biodiversity is being taken place throughout the wildlife. Unhappy farmers complain about their land space and the effects it has on their farms....   [tags: kansas, wind energy, wind turbines]

Analysis of Wind Turbine Designs - Abstract Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft and one of the most philanthropic men in history giving over 28 billion dollars to charity so far, states his number one wish for the world wouldn't be to rid the world of aids, vaccinate kids around the world, or feed every starving children; instead, it would be to invent and utilize a cheaper emission-free source of energy. My research aims to cut through the vast amounts of wind turbine designs and analyze the two most promising types. The first type is Small Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs), roughly 1.5 meters by 1 meter and generating roughly 500 watts....   [tags: Wind Turbine Essays]

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]

Report on Wind - Report on Wind I did my report on wind. As you may or may not know wind moves horizontally, and the wind that doesn’t move horizontally moves vertically. That kind of wind is called a current. Many things may cause these rushes of moving air, one thing would be atmospheric pressure differences. The differences in the distribution of pressure and temperature is caused by the unequal distribution of heat. There are also the differences in the thermal properties of land and the ocean surfaces. When the temperatures of different regions become unequal, the warmer air will normally rise and move over the cold air because the cold air is heavier....   [tags: Wind Energy Weather Essays] 1628 words

Wind has also been used in the past to power mills, which have been used to pump water and grind grains.

Wind Farm Restrictions - Geography Research Paper Rough Draft Wind energy is really a converted form of solar energy. (Halacy) The sun’s radiation heats different parts of the earth at different rates. It is mostly noticeable in the day, but it also is available when different surfaces, like water and land, absorb or reflect at different rates. This causes portions of the atmosphere to warm differently. After, hot air rises, and that reduces the atmospheric pressure at the earth’s surface, and cooler air is drawn in to replace it....   [tags: Energy ] 1700 words

Offshore Wind Power - ... Offshore wind projects provide various advantages along with providing giant development opportunity due to the natural topographies found in the ocean. In absence of land-based obstacles and terrain, wind has much strength on the ocean surface and consequently it yields greater amounts of energy when harnessed competently. This is compounded by the usage of bigger turbines; which is possible due to the relative ease of transferring bigger components via water. This cuts out the requirement to construct more transmission lines through the country, thus eradicating demand for great quantities of fossil fuels....   [tags: energy, capital, ocean] 554 words

Ode of the West Wind by Percy Shelley - Percy Shelley was a rebellious writer. Many of the things that he had written didn’t really follow the social standards of his time. Many times, he would call something out or introduce many ludicrous ideas. He also was a huge fan of William Wordsworth, a poet who thought the Industrial Revolution was ruining our connection towards nature. So, Shelley tended to follow this theme, except in a more rebellious way and Adam Kirsch agrees when he states, “Unlike the average radical, then, Shelley didn't just challenge social taboos; he openly violated them, living his personal life in accordance with unpopular principles like equality, women's rights, and free love.” (Kirsch, Adam)....   [tags: too a skylark, spirit, nature]

Ode to The West Wind Poem Analysis - Percy Bysshe Shelley was the definition of a Romantic poet. His philosophical ideals emphasized the importance of aestheticism and his poetry clearly portrayed the beauty and majesty of the natural world. Like many of his Romantic peers, Shelley’s own life was short, tragic, and full of hardships. Drowned in a boating accident before the age of thirty, his one desire that his words would impact and inspire did not become a reality until long after his departure. In his poem, “Ode to the West Wind,” Shelley uses symbolism, simile, meter, imagery, and many other devices to present the power of nature and the speaker’s hope for this power to become part of him in his mission to bring about ins...   [tags: percy shelley, romantic poet, poems]

The Present and Potential of Wind Power - Wind Power’s Present and Potential Abstract As the global supply of fossil fuels becomes steadily lower, need is growing for new energy sources that are beneficial to the environment and cost-effective. Wind power is one solution to this need. Wind turbines require significant investment, but are cost-efficient in the long term. If construction of turbines is sufficiently increased, the wind may be able to in the future provide a very major portion of global energy.

Wind - A Renewable Energy Source - Wind - A Renewable Energy Source Wind is called a renewable energy source because wind will continually be produced as long as the sun shines on the earth. The sun’s contribution to wind energy deals with converting air into heat or cool wind. Wind is produced by the irregular heating of the earth’s surface by the sun. On land, the warm air spreads and goes up in the sky, in the water, heavier and cooler air moves in to take the warm air’s place, thus providing local winds. This power source should be used more often in the United States for its safer standards regarding the environment and finance....   [tags: Alternative Energy Research Papers]

They began, as I foresaw, at sunset with a violent tempest of hail and rain, attended that magnificent thunder and lightning peculiar to the Cisalpine regions."
