Annotation 1

For all its promise , the wind doesn't blow when needed.

The article with this title is the debate for and against the use of wind energy. With emission controls blockading new coal plants, wind energy could be the saving grace; However, with all of the promise laden with this energy alternative, there are drawbacks. When the wind doesn't blow, there is no power being generated, which means potential blackouts. This problem would need to be adressed with access energency generators that are coslty to run and horrendous in pollution. In new sprawling cities, wind power would be a problem since the hottest days are the least windy. The best way to look at the wind energy situation is to view it as a good add on, but not yet a reliable alternative for new America.
