It can shape landforms, It can make new plants by blowing the seeds to a different place, It helps birds go in a direction they want to go, Wind can help airplanes and kites the same way. It can also be a bad thing like a hurricane, thunderstorm, or a tornando.

Wind Power

Wind power is a conservation of energy (wind energy). Such as wind turbines to make electrical power, windmills for mechanical power, wind pumps for water,pumping, or drainage, Or sails to propel ships. There are these places called wind farms where there is thousands of wind turbines that are connected to a Electrical power transmission network. Wind power is very consistent year to year but it has significant variation over shorter time scales.
