"An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future.

They are bringing a sea of information and data together in a visually stunning story.  I've said it before but infographics are going to continue to become more and more important to society needing to absorb large tracts of data quickly.

Wind Power is not without controversy but certainly there is room for it in the diversified portfolio of alternative energy sources of the future.
