Downsides: global wind is actually slowing due to AGW; rapidly running out of 'easily' extractable rare earths for the required permanent magnets.

Not against it at all, but just be aware of the increasing problems.

Oh sure, just spread as much cancer as you can!  Way to go, scientists!

I was hoping this was going to be some record about glassblowing.

And it will kill all the birds!

Slowing? The global wind energy industry is expanding unabated.

I remember working on V47s, and the old MHI machines...

I feel old now.

Global wind SPEEDS.

Wind speeds slowed down some between 1980 and 2010, but have since picked back up.  It seems unlikely that AGW would cause slowing since there's more energy in the system.

AGW causes everything.
Europe's electricity generation from wind blown off course
Drop in wind speeds linked to 'global stilling' and climate change, scientists say

"The unusually low wind patterns continue. So far this month, there have been no gales whatsoever, while four weather stations have reported their lowest mean wind speed on record.

"In September the jet stream was to the north of Ireland. It's normally over the country, when you get more wind," confirms Met Éireann climatologist Paul Moore.

For the summer, 10 stations had their lowest wind speeds on record due to a lot of "blocking highs"; slow moving or stationary areas of high pressure.

While recent patterns may be due to normal weather variation, there is evidence "windiness reduces slightly, by 1 per cent" due to global warming, though individual storm systems have potential to be stronger, Moore notes."

Could someone turn that thing off?  It's been a bit blustery here today.
