ABSTRACT
The article highlights wind energy in the U.S. as it went forth as the cost-effective solution to global warming. According to the author, after the nation's booming previous records with more than 2400 megawatts (MW) of wind energy set up in 2005, they are now in track to bring online more than three thousand MW in 2006. With the move, she stresses that the nation's economy, environment and energy security should be tone up. Accordingly, it is expected that the move will countervail some 15 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
