Last week, we posted the results of a report from the John Muir Trust claiming that wind  power is a lot more useless than the wind industry—or anyone invested  in renewable energy, really—would like us to believe. Naturally, we  were contacted by the  American wind industry which wanted to  aggressively refute the claims and spread the wind turbine gospel. Click through to read the epic battle between the John Muir Trust study and what the  AWEA says is wrong with it (in our words, using information from our  interview and their blog).

This video accompanies one of our April feature stories about Transforming Sustainable Energy in Afghanistan. It really makes you think about how living, literally off the grid for so long can be turned into an opportunity to bypass the step we are all trying to make now (in transforming our wasteful daily ways) and go straight to sustainable living and using renewable energy sources. Kudos to the team for putting this together!
