Con

Wind turbines are used to produce the energy from wind however they are expensive, loud, and kill. One turbine isn't effective there would need to be multiple even more money to built them and just one costs a lot. Towns or cities near the wind turbines have to deal with the constant noise produced from the turbine which could cause problems in their daily life. Wind turbines also kill migratory birds or bats affecting the population of these species that migrat around those areas

Pro

Although there are a few cons, there are many pros.

1. Wind Energy is a renewable source of energy, unlike coal and oil. This means that we can use Wind Energy forever (or at least for a VERY long time)

2. Wind Energy is very efficient. One wind turbine could power 600 houses!

3. Wind Energy isn't pollutant, unlike coal and oil.

4. Prices for wind turbines are just 1/5 of what they were in 1980, and are expected to keep decreasing.

5. Wind Turbines are producing 16X the current energy demand.

And now, some rebuttals.

This one pretty much covers cost, noise, and deaths. The cost for a wind turbine is becoming much cheaper, wind turbine are not very noisy, and only 1 bird will die by wind turbine every 8-15 years.

They draw from a renewable energy source, however.
