Who mentioned the quote "The stone age came to an end not for lack of stone, And the oil age will come to an end not for lack of oil" ? What will the world look like with good cheep energy storage, and a source like wind that generates this energy?
As a follow up to the 2008 U.S. Department of Energy 20% Wind Energy by 2030 report, the new Wind Vision Report quantifies the economic, environmental, and social benefits of a robust wind energy future through 2050. The Wind Vision Report’s Study Scenario provides an overview of what wind related jobs, manufacturing competitiveness, and resource savings could look like in 2020, 2030, and 2050.

I will be consuming this info in the next few days for weeks to come and see how my theory of GE holds.
