Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
siegal, very good diary! Excellent.
You have given us almost too much to work with.

I do have a couple of points:
1. Ohio's wind energy potential actually exceeds the electricity demand of the entire state of Ohio
It always seems like a no brainer, that there is so much potential energy all around us, for example: How much energy does a hurricane release?

  1. The article that Robert posted: Alberta turns to natural gas after wind lessens reliability, brought up some important points. One being that we need to create more energy diversity than worry about one source suiting all our needs.

  2. One of my favorite bloggers on the environment wrote the post entitled: Random Nature #119. I know not very thrilling title but has a lot of good information on this subject.

  3. As far as putting windmills on the Great Lakes, I believe it will face the same problems as Nantucket sound wind mills. Bodies of water are usually "the commons" and as such there will always be one party or another that will loose out on its free lunch.

In conclusion, I like all the good news and information that is coming out. As I read your post (a siegel) and Rogue Pundits, I have the feeling that a lot of projects on renewable energy sources are more 'feel good' moves than actually finding the best sources of energy in the most efficient method.
