Wind Now Provides Over 2% of U.S. Energy Consumption

I guess that's better than nothing.

It is still absolutely disgusting, though.

Especially since we get a smaller percentage energy from renewable sources today then we did 15 years ago. Mind, this is due to hydroelectric having maxed out at around that time--hydroelectric still provides the bulk (almost 2/3) of renewable energy in the U.S., with carbon-intensive biomass and wood-related fuels providing about 1/8.

And of course this is bad news (both for geothermal and presumably for my portfolio as well ...)
