http://www.vawind.org. Virginia Wind is maintained by Dan Boone and Rick Webb. The website provides access to recent reports, commentary, and information relevant to commercial wind development in the Appalachian Region as well as information about wind energy development in the U.S.

http://www.stopillwind.org. Stop ill wind, one of the best websites on wind energy. Lists the Top Ten False and Misleading Claims the wind industry makes. This site was developed by Jon Boone and has links to several of his reports including The RubeGoldberg Nature of Industrial Wind Development.

http://www.wind-watch.org. National wind watch, Promotes awareness of the risks and related impacts of industrial wind energy development on our environment, economy, and quality of life. Look at the Fast Facts to understand the basics of wind energy, e.g. turbine size, capacity factor, grid stability, tax subsidies, etc. Watch "video" interviews with people who are forced to live near wind plants.

http://www.aweo.org. Industrial wind energy opposition, this website has a great deal of useful information and many good links. A must read is a report by Eric Rosenbloom – A Problem With Wind Power, which discusses wind energy in Europe as well as the many problems with wind power.

http://www.windaction.org. Industrial wind action is dedicated to providing information on industrial wind energy to enable communities and government officials to make informed decisions.

http:// www.iberica2000.org. A website developed by Spanish conservationist Mark Duchamp. His research concentrates on the detrimental effects of wind turbines on birds, bats, and the environment. There are several links to his reports and photos of bird mortality.

http://www.wvmcre.org. Mountain Communities for Responsible Energy was formed September 2005 in
response to a proposal by Invenergy to install 133 wind turbines on the highest ridges in beautiful
Greenbrier County, West Virginia.

http://www.protectpendleton.com. Developed by Pendleton County, West Virginia in opposition to proposed wind energy in their community. Excellent information and great photos from a wind plant in Cefn Croes, Wales that experienced severe environmental damage from wind turbine installation. These photos are a must see to understand just how environmentally harmful wind plants are to the surrounding countryside.

Most of the information on our "Wind Energy Faqs" page was gathered from the following reports.
Following the list of reports is a list of web sites that contain some of the most up to
date and comprehensive information on wind energy.

A Word of Caution: In your search for more facts about wind energy, it is important to know for whom
the researcher is working.  Independent analysis paints a much different picture from the analysis of those
who have a financial stake in the implementation of wind technology.  Many Universities receive
state and federal funding for the promotion of wind energy and subsequently produce biased reporting.

http://www.vawind.org/Assets/Docs/Wishful-Thinking.pdf . - Industrial Wind Power in the Mountains of Virginia, by Rick Webb. An easy to read brief overview about commercial wind development in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Points out the overstated benefits and understated costs as well as the negative environmental impacts of commercial wind development in the Appalachian region.

http://www.wind-watch.org/press-070301.php
-March 2007 press release from Eric Rosenbloom - "Wind does not help fight global warming." Because of the inefficiency of wind power, it is unlikely any fossil fuel plants will ever be shut down. Quoting the U.S. Energy Information Administration: wind generated only 0.36% of total electricity produced in the U.S. in 2005. To produce a mere 5% would require hundreds of thousands of turbines and the destruction of ten million acres of land - this would be an environmental dis
aster.
http://www.stopillwind.org/downloads/LessForMore.pdf
- Less for More: The Rube Goldberg Nature of Industrial Wind Development, by Jon Boone, Dec. 2006. Probably the best reporting on wind energy inefficiency and unreliability; provides an explanation of the basics, e.g. capacity factor, the grid, load balancing, etc. Explains why wind power cannot reduce meaningful levels of greenhouse gas emissions. A brilliant report.

- "Big Money" Discovers the Huge Tax Breaks and Subsidies While Taxpayers and Electric Customers Pick up the Tab , by Glenn R. Schleede, April 2005. This report exposes wind energy for the extravagant fraud it is. Wind farms are not built for energy or environmental purposes. The tax breaks and subsidies have more value to wind farm owners than the revenue from the sale of the small amount of electricity they produce. Please note Mr. Schleede's impressive resume.

http://www.aweo.org/ProblemWithWind.html.
A Problem With Wind Power , by Eric Rosenbloom, Sept. 2006. Another great report - discusses wind problems in Europe . Provides in depth discussion of the many environmental and economic problems with wind energy. Mr. Rosenbloom suggests many
realistic solutions to the problems of fossil fuel dependency.
