Sustainable Society:  A society that balances the environment, other life forms, and human interactions over an indefinite time period.








The power of the wind is frequently promoted as a renewable, non-polluting, and economic source of energy and heavily promoted in Minnesota and a number or other states (and in several foreign countries).

This section presents information evaluating the claimed benefits and problems associated with windpower.

After studying the issues, the position of MFS is that windpower is generally counter productive to a successful energy policy but has regional and limited application.

If a visitor is aware of other robust windpower studies that can be recommended for inclusion, please send to the editor (if possible, no .pdf files, please).
