Generating just 20% of US electricity with wind power would require some 185,000 1.5-MW turbines, up to 18 million acres of land, and 245 million tons of concrete, steel, copper, fiberglass and rare earth metals. Multiply that times global needs, and you get the picture.

Well yeah that kinda gets back to my point about these technologies not being commercially viable yet. It's been a tremendous waste of money and resources trying to force it, with little to know impact on the climate.
