Trees and Wind Farms

Trees and Wind Farms.

Farmers in the central Indian state of Maharashtra have forced an inquiry after claims the 1,700 windmills in the region have contributed to a drought by chasing away the monsoon rains. Last month protesters tried to sabotage several turbines.
-BBC Report: Ill wind: Six big fears about wind farms. By Jonathan Duffy BBC Online Magazine.16th June 2004.


If trees at a dry biomass density of 30 Kg/sq.m were compared for power flow with a wind farm, both on one square kilometer of land area, for a power input of 1000 MW/km^2, the trees would generate a power of 1800 Megawatts per sq.km(MW/km^2) compared to wind farms of at most 1 MW/km^2. In India, where every square kilometer of land is a priceless resource, occupying three orders of magnitude more land to produce the same amount of power is unjust. Further, the trees use multiple inputs of nature: the soil, the water, the sun, the wind and the outputs of other living creatures in the ecosystem to produce multiple outputs, including raising of the underground water table and the automatic equitable distribution of water in proportion to the density of vegetation and forest produce like fruits and fodder, nuts and fuel and keep the soil fertile and the air pure and keep the ambient temperature conditioned. The trees ensure flood control and drought proofing. The windfarms do not charge the clouds, and by destroying wind velocity contribute to the creation of drought conditions downwind of the windfarm. The windfarms waste all nature except a minor part of wind energy. The following audit of the windfarms and trees highlights these and other aspects(Table).
On account of these features, reverdure is the panacea for improving the overall productivity in a sustainable manner. Living energy use in a kind manner, preserving energy in cycles of use, using the power of the human being and other animals and trees is the need of the hour, for India, not windmills.


Table Comparison of Trees and Windmill Farms
The audit of trees and windfarms in rainforest areas below brings out how costly to the public at large are windfarms compared to a rainforest in the monsoon drenched areas.Because of the concentration of power in trees, even in rain shadow areas the wind farms are to be eschewed as brought out in the table

Creation of winds
Creates additional density difference and hence intensifies winds
Consumes winds,wasting the major part of solar energy and all the water
22
Contribution to survival
Trees harmonise into a lossless wheel of health in dynamic evolutionary processes involving improvement of traits by building a dynamic repertoire of gene pools and because of the genetic variability assure conditions for survival
Fragmenting the total solar energy available, windmills/windfarms use only a minute part of the kinetic energy of the winds-they are specialists in a living world of interconnections-monsters.
23
How do they fare in rain-shadow areas?
The trees being giant pumps, once the area is afforested, they are superior infinitely to the monsters as they enhance the monsoon effect.
They disturb the local rainfall
24
In the context of droughts and floods how do they help?
The automatic intrinsic control of equitable distribution of groundwater table charging according to the density of vegetation ensures flood control and drought proofing.
The windmills create local droughts as shown above.
