Ask five people what alternative form of energy might best someday supplant fossil fuels and you’re likely to get five different answers. Some are bullish on solar power, others hydro-electric, or geothermal, or bio-fuel, hydrogen, ethanol. Heck, there are ways to derive fuel from algae. But actually replacing coal, oil, and nuclear? That’s a tall order.

Author Philip Warburg believes America’s path towards energy independence is lined with windmills. He writes about it in his book Harvest the Wind, and we’ll talk with him about wind energy on Focus.
