By 2030, the U.S. hopes to obtain 20 percent of the nation's electricity from wind power--nearly 20 times today's wind power production.

Julian Hunt, professor of climate modeling at University College, London, discussed the effects of climate change on wind power on June 12, 2009 at a Cornell Workshop on Large-Scale Wind Generated Power.

The two-day workshop explored the impact of wind power on birds and bats, noise, and aesthetics, as well as the challenge of overhauling the national power grid.
