The author discusses the use of wind power for energy generation and advises against its proliferation. The author says that wind power had been strongly advocated for in the U.S. and the European Union in the last three decades since many thought that it is a good alternative for fossil fuel. However, the author says that wind power installation involves a very high price and wind power plants are not very reliable. Gas turbine specialist Jim Oswald said that wind power is unreliable and is costlier in the long run.
