In 10 years, wind energy will be cheaper by fossil fuels

Wind energy accounts for less than 5 percent of America’s electricity usage, but other than hydroelectric dams, it’s the biggest source of renewable energy, accounting for 23 percent of new power production from last year. From Mother Jones: Some experts think wind could provide a fifth of the world’s energy by 2030. But wind in theā€¦
