How are these resources found?
warm air expands and rise up while cold air condenses and sinks making a flow of air called wind.
formed from the organic remains of prehistoric plants and animals
What are some cool facts and statistics?
Early forms of wind turbines were used to crush grain or pump water. Wind turbines are taller than the Statue of Liberty, 328 ft tall. Wind power gets 4.7 percent of energy usage.
- petroleum: 1 percent
- natural gases: 33 percent
- coal: 33 percent
What is one innovative alternative energy form?
Wind turbines were discovered along time ago but then they were used for pumping water and crushing grain. Now they are used to generate electricity. One improvement people could use in the future is putting wind turbine on mountains and in oceans.
people an conserve all energy which means we won't have to burn and find as much energy. Also we could try very hard to clean out all pollutes before letting the air back out.
