      As long as there is Sun and air on our planet, there will always be wind!
      .
      We might run out of coal, oil and gas, we might run out of nuclear power sources, but we’ll never run out of wind – which makes it a pretty good source for us 🙂 Also, it doesn’t release as many nasty gases!

      Like Agnes said, there’s always wind blowing! That energy just goes to waste unless we try and capture it by putting a wind turbine in front of it. Gas, oil, coal and nuclear energy all use something that will eventually run out, and cause a lot of pollution, wind doesn’t.
