Wind energy By:Chelsey ledford
What is Wind Energy?
Wind power is extracted from air flow using wind turbines or sails to produce mechanical or eletrical.
How it Works
Wind turbines operate on a simple principle. The energy in the wind turns two or three propeller like baldes around a rotor. The rotor is connected to the main shaft which spins a generator to create electricty.
Wind energy is alternative to fossil fules,its plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no green house gas emissions during opperation, and uses little land.
Wind turbines have some disadvatages. Noise disturbance Threat to wild life (kill birds) Wind cannever be predicted Visual impact
Should we use it?
No we should not use wind energy.
Why we should not use it?
Because wind turbines are a threat to wild life. They kill birds which can mess up everything if we have too much of a bird loss in the ecosystem. Birds die and then worms and grass hoppers increases. Anything a bird eats will increas and cause an extrem difference. We need our animals to keep everything at a good blance to keep everything in our ecosystem and community incontrol.
