Wind energy is one of the least tapped sources of alternate energy. The amount of Wind power available in the atmosphere is so high that it can satisfy the demands of the whole world.

Once upon a time there existed a group of nations who gathered together in a land called Copenhagen to sign a treaty that would protect their collective kingdoms from the evils of climate change and ensure the livelihoods of their people for years to come. Despite years of obstacles and reasons to believe otherwise, the agreement was signed in the nick of time and they lived happily ever after. The End.
