Spain has progressed enough on the renewable energy front that wind power provided 50% of its electricity last Sunday morning.
Ok, so it was for just a few hours, but still, says this Treehugger post:
Averaged out of the year, wind power accounted for 11.8% of Spanish electricity demand in 2008.
Why is Spain dusting America -- with our Great Plains ready to become "The Saudi Arabia of wind power" -- in renewable energy?
America is clearly falling behind and I'm embarrassed.
It's time for America to buck up, for our citizens and government to wake up, and us all to achieve some victories in renewable energy. We can still win it in overtime! (even if it takes Al Franken tricking James Inhofe into locking himself into a closet in the Capitol basement)
