It is not possible for wind farms to effect weather paterns IMO. I'm not a weatherman so keep that in mind.
If you had 2,500 windmills on a hill how would that cause weather to be different at a certain spot? The wind blowing through the windmills is only surface wind. There is plenty more wind available above the windmills all the way up several miles to make up for the disturbances caused by the windmills at the earths surface. The jet streams, the wind in all the high and low pressure areas all over the world, surface temp, humitidy, and pressure all over the planet mostly the water, the spin of the earth, these thing effect the weather 100 billion times more than a few thousand windmills on a hill. This makes no since to me.

But you are forgeting the massive amounts of energy that exist in our atmosphere and that new energy from the sun, evaporation, and other causes are constantly being introduced.
If you want to see what power systems are effecting the air, look to coal and oil! Global warming is real and not just some political ploy in India. Lets work on the real problems before going after renewable clean energy.
Air flows from high pressure to low pressure. The pressure differences are caused by unequal heating of the earth's surface. Weather patters occur when mountains, forests and oceans impact the direction, temperature, and humidity of air.

Sure they do..Take Cow wind seriously. There is a lot of it.
I like the idea of somehow capturing the methane.
And using it as an energy source..
But see, it still conjurs up the vision of a cow wearing balloon pants..
To Be "milked" for Methane at just the right time...And that makes me
