The facts and figures covering the power we generate from wind need to be exposed. A least the solar energy enthusiasts regularly tell us just how enormous their capacity is, but the wind business seems more withdrawn, despite the fabulous energy available and its long history.

We only consider 2 nations here, with their differing thoughts on an industry that provides cheap and easy energy. The worldwide comparative approach might be appropriate to consider just how often fracking leads to consequences that the perpetrators are very reluctant to investigate. It is up to local people in every nation to decide on their own solutions, but also to look at other opinions where experiences in other countries have taught us what to expect.

For months, we have heard of nanotechnologies that involve various methods to convert solar energy into electricity or even make hydrogen, but now the old faithful, gold, has been brought into the equation with dramatic results. Let’s hope speculation doesn’t send up the price, but it shouldn’t.
