Done With the Wind

Lomborg, Bjørn
March 2011
Newsweek (Pacific Edition);3/21/2011 (Pacific Edition), Vol. 157 Issue 12, p12
The author explains the issue of energy security through renewable energy transitions in the U.S. and Europe. He believes that switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy is not enough in furthering energy security although it can mitigate the impact of global warming, wherein he tells that wind power needs to address its storage problem before expanding its wind projects. The author suggests that renewable-energy suppliers must endorse innovation to make renewable energy become affordable to implement and produce.
