Blowing in the wind

Wind Map

Just a great map!


I've tried several times to load this but, at last, I have succeeded.
Beautiful picture - definitely a work of art.

The only query I have is how this compares with the population density.
From memory, I suspect the area with the greatest population density - the E & NE (Washington, NY etc.) and California are some of the highest but there the wind is at its lowest. By the time they have caught all the wind energy "close" to Denver it will be lost as heat in the transmission lines.
(i.e. it fills me with wonder how people can come up with such a ridiculous idea.)
