HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE WIND

July 20, 2018, 10:30am.  About Me.  Yesterday on my way to Staples to pick up my new sign, I stopped at PL$ Check Cashing store to send money to my youngest grandson Wesley, via Western Union.  When I telephoned Wesley and told him I would send $300 to him, he had suggested we meet in person but it’s too emotional for me, I must concentrate fully on doing this crazy woman work that I do.  Wesley suggested I leave the money in an envelope at the front desk and he stop by. I told Wesley there’s too much drama going on here at the YWCA. (If he came here, would he have a severe asthma attack in the lobby or something of that nature, right at the moment I was retuning from Staples?)  I mentioned to Wesley that I might soon be evicted, but I did not go into any detail, just that I am faced with a lot of adversity.

Harnessing the Power of Wind
[Awake! – 1995]

BY AWAKE! CORRESPONDENT IN THE NETHERLANDS

ROUND and round the huge rotor blades turn. They revolve slowly, steadily, like the arms of a giant swimmer who labors tirelessly against a current that forever holds him in place. These arms, though, move because of the current​—not in spite of it. The current is the wind. Aside from its rustling, the whirring of these mechanical arms is the only sound to be heard. This is a wind turbine, generating electricity from wind power.

In windswept parts of such countries as Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States, more and more of these wind turbines dot the landscape. In the United States, California already has more than 16,000 of them. Some 30 miles [50 km] east of San Francisco, at Altamont Pass, there is a wind farm where some 7,000 turbines crowd the hillsides to draw power from the steady wind. Altogether, California’s wind turbines are said to be capable of generating enough power to supply the residential needs of San Francisco and Washington, D.C., combined.

Denmark, surrounded by the sea, is also well suited for harnessing wind energy; already there are some 3,600 wind turbines there. In 1991 the Netherlands had only about 300 wind turbines, but the country’s windiest provinces agreed to increase that number to 3,000. Energy planners in England too are hoping to harness the wind to a similar extent in their country.

Of course, harnessing the power of the wind is not a new idea. Just think of all the ships driven by the wind that sailed the oceans during the ages before the advent of engines. Windmills have been used for centuries to pump water, to grind corn and spices, and to saw wood. In the Netherlands there are about 900 of these graceful monuments left. Many of them are still faithfully pumping water; they are reliable even during power outages.

It was a century ago that Danish professor Poul de la Cour first experimented with harnessing wind power to generate electricity. He developed a small forerunner of today’s modern wind turbine. However, in the 20th century, mankind found that fossil fuels were much easier to harness and provided greater power. At first, such fuels seemed cheap and plentiful; so they easily eclipsed the wind as a source of power. It was not until the oil crisis of 1973 that wind power was again taken seriously.

Advantages for the Environment

The oil crisis prompted scientists to consider what would happen when fuel supplies were exhausted. Alternatives such as wind power took on a new appeal. Wind, after all, is inexhaustible. In effect, it renews itself constantly, much as the Bible said of it: “Round and round it is continually circling.” (Ecclesiastes 1:6) Wind power is also much easier on the environment than fossil fuels, which contribute to fearful phenomena such as acid rain and may intensify the greenhouse effect. Wind energy produces no chemical emissions whatsoever.

And while wind is not as concentrated a form of energy as gas, coal, or oil, it has surprising advantages. For example, picture a wind turbine turning slowly in a gentle ten-​mile-​an-​hour [10 km/​hr] breeze. Suddenly the wind picks up, doubling to 20 miles per hour [20 km/​hr]. How much more energy is the turbine now drawing from the wind? Double the amount? No. New Scientist magazine explains: “Wind energy varies as a cube of the wind speed.” So when the wind speed doubles, it provides eight times the power! Even a small increase in wind speed thus means a large boost in energy output from a wind turbine. To take full advantage of this cube law, as it is called, wind turbines are commonly placed on hilltops, where wind accelerates as it rushes over.

Another appealing aspect of wind power is that it is a fairly decentralized system. A windmill can bring the source of energy close to the user. The machines are quick to install and easy to move. Wind is not mined, shipped, or bought. This means that the power is not difficult to distribute, especially compared to crude oil, which has to be shipped in large bulk carriers. Accidents involving such carriers have led to enormous environmental disasters time and time again​—such as the Alaskan oil spill of 1989. Wind turbines have no such disadvantages.

Some Drawbacks

This does not mean that wind power is a panacea for mankind’s energy problems. One major challenge lies in the unpredictability of the wind. It can change direction at any time. Researchers have long looked for solutions to this problem. One answer was devised in the 1920’s, when the French engineer Georges Darrieus developed a wind turbine with a vertical axis. It looks much like a huge mixer, and it operates regardless of the direction of the wind. Variations of this odd-​looking contraption are in operation today. However, wind can also stop altogether at any time. And at the other extreme, sudden gales can damage the rotor blades and turbine.

Surprisingly, some of the most vocal objections to the use of wind power concern the environment. For one thing, the high-​tech wind turbines of today are a far cry from the picturesque, quaint structures of yesteryear. The large ones are as much as 300 feet [100 m] tall; the medium ones 130 feet [40 m]. Few would describe them as pretty. True, many high-​tension lines and radio towers may be that tall, but the whirling blades of a wind turbine draw a good deal more attention.

Then there is the matter of noise. Some object strenuously to having wind turbines in their vicinity because of the noise that they generate. Yet, interestingly, one study found that a medium-​sized turbine in Cornwall, England, produces about the level of noise you would hear if a car traveling at 40 miles per hour [60 km/​hr] passed 20 feet [7 m] away from you. This sound level drops dramatically with distance though. A person 1,000 feet [300 m] away hears no more noise than he would hear in an average library. What is more, the wind that makes the turbine spin tends to mask the noise. Admittedly, however, when there are hundreds of wind turbines at one location​—or thousands as there are at California’s Altamont Pass—​noise can be a significant problem.

Another problem involves birds. A bird protection organization in the Netherlands recently warned against building wind farms where birds feed and breed​—when it is dark or foggy outside, they might crash into the rotor blades. According to one estimate, on a Dutch wind farm with 260 turbines, up to 100,000 birds a year could be killed in this way. However, other studies indicate that wind turbines have little effect on bird life.

An Insurance Policy?

Despite these obstacles, it is clear that wind power can make an important contribution to reducing world consumption of fossil fuels. In his book Wind Energy Systems, Professor Gary L. Johnson of Kansas State University, U.S.A., explains that wind power could work together with more conventional generation systems. Used in that way, he says, “wind generators may be considered as somewhat of an insurance policy against serious fuel supply problems.”

Before long, man may be in sore need of such an insurance policy. The news media often mention man’s endless quest for fuel. As he mines for coal and drills for oil and gas, he not only depletes these irreplaceable commodities but in some places also fouls his own nest by putting them to use! Meanwhile, the wind blows on​—clean, endless, and, for the most part, still ignored.

WIND

The Hebrew word ruʹach, often rendered “spirit,” can also denote air in motion, wind. (Ec 1:6) Other Hebrew terms and expressions may be translated “storm wind” (Ho 8:7), “tempest,” “whirling tempest” (Jer 25:32; 23:19), “tempestuous wind,” and “windstorm” (Ps 148:8; 2Ki 2:11). Although at John 3:8 pneuʹma (generally translated “spirit”) means “wind,” the Greek term aʹne·mos is the more frequently used designation for wind. (Mt 7:25, 27; 11:7; Joh 6:18) “The breezy part [Heb., ruʹach] of the day” apparently referred to the evening hours just before sunset, when refreshing cool breezes commonly arise in the region where the garden of Eden is thought to have been.​—Ge 3:8; see SPIRIT.

Jehovah God is the Creator of the wind. (Am 4:13) Though not literally in it (1Ki 19:11; compare Job 38:1; 40:6; Ps 104:3), God can control the wind and use it to serve his purposes, as when he employed it as an agent to cause the waters of the Flood to subside. (Ge 8:1; Ex 14:21; Nu 11:31; Ps 78:26; 107:25, 29; 135:7; 147:18; Jer 10:13; Jon 1:4) His Son, when on earth, likewise displayed power to control the winds, causing them to abate. (Mt 8:23-27; 14:24-32; Mr 4:36-41; 6:48, 51; Lu 8:22-25) It was apparently only by Jehovah’s allowance that Satan was able to produce or control “a great wind” that brought death to Job’s children.​—Job 1:11, 12, 18, 19.

Usually winds were named for the direction from which they came, the “east wind” blowing westward from the E. (Ex 10:13, 19; Ps 78:26; Ca 4:16) All four directions, N, S, E, and W, are embraced by references to “the four winds” of heaven or earth. (Jer 49:36; Eze 37:9; Da 8:8; Mt 24:31) At Revelation 7:1, “four angels” are depicted as “standing upon the four corners of the earth, holding tight the four winds of the earth.” By standing at the “corners,” the “angels” would let loose the winds obliquely from diagonal directions, sparing no quarter of the earth from the disastrous blowing of the winds.

North winds were cool and brought heavy rains. (Job 37:9; Pr 25:23) The S wind blew over hot desert areas into Palestine and, therefore, could produce a heat wave (Lu 12:55); storm winds might also originate in the S. (Isa 21:1; Zec 9:14) In the dry season, the E wind, in moving toward Egypt and Palestine, crossed vast desert areas and so was hot and dry, scorching or drying up vegetation. (Ge 41:6, 23, 27; Eze 17:7-10; compare Ho 13:15; Jon 4:8.) During the rainy season, W winds carried moisture into Palestine from the Mediterranean Sea and brought rain to the land. (1Ki 18:42-45) When observers there saw a cloud rising in the W, they could expect a storm. (Lu 12:54) In the dry summer, daily breezes from the Mediterranean made the weather more tolerable.​—See CLOUD; EUROAQUILO.

Figurative Use. Winds can spring up quickly and just as quickly die down, thus appropriately representing the transitoriness of man’s life. (Job 7:7) Having no solid substance, wind can denote vain knowledge and labor, empty words and hopes (Job 15:1, 2; 16:3; Ec 5:16; Ho 12:1), as well as nothingness. (Isa 26:18; 41:29; Jer 5:13) As vain works end up in futility, pursuing them is like “striving after wind.” (Ec 1:14; 2:11) And the man who brings ostracism upon his house takes “possession of wind.” He gains nothing that is worth while or has real substance.​—Pr 11:29.

Winds scatter and toss objects about, and so being ‘scattered to every wind’ or ‘divided toward the four winds’ signifies complete dispersion or division. (Jer 49:36; Eze 5:10; 12:14; 17:21; Da 11:4) Like a vessel that is tossed about by the winds, with no set course, persons lacking Christian maturity are subject to being “carried hither and thither by every wind of teaching by means of the trickery of men, by means of cunning in contriving error.”​—Eph 4:13, 14.
