In this episode, we discuss some of the considerations if you are approached to lease your land for a wind farm and some of the pros and cons associated with wind energy.  Little did we know how soon after recording this episode we'd be faced with an energy crisis and rolling blackouts in Texas due to record low temps and widespread snow and ice storms freezing all types of energy production in the state.  From preventable problems with natural gas power plants to half of the Texas' renewable power offline due to frozen wind turbines and snow covered solar panels, this highlights the need to be measured in our approach to a low carbon energy future.

Our thoughts go out to those in Texas currently faced with the current energy crisis.  Once we all thaw out, this episode has a lot to think about as it relates to wind energy and how we make a smart transition to a low carbon future.  Enjoy and we'd love your thoughts - email
