Lots more wind power in Portugal

Reading an article in the national issue of Metro Portugal stating that the capacity of wind power in terms of installed wind turbines will increase from 1800 MW today to 7100 at latest in 2012. It also says that 1800MW is 7% of the "produced" energy in Portugal. So predicted 20% in 2012 from wind power alone.

There was an article the other day stating that too much alarmism in the media only will cause apathy. Thus no change will lead from exaggerated alarmism.

So this increase in wind power energy capacity in Portugal is a very positive sign of change.

Now we only have to be much better at using that energy ...
