Short Description: Harvest the Wind: America's Journey to Jobs, Energy Independence, and Climate Stability is a story of hope with its pulse deep in the American heartland.  Wind power has brought new jobs, new income, and a restored sense of pride to hundreds of communities across the country.  Philip Warburg introduces readers to the farmers, entrepreneurs, factory workers, and innovators who are the driving forces behind this transformative technology.  He also visits epicenters of anti-wind activism, where complaints about wind farm noise, wildlife hazards, and visual blight pose tough challenges to the industry.  With eyes wide-open, Warburg charts a course that can lead our nation to a saner and more sustainable energy future.
