Wind energy does help advance national security. The less dependent the United States is on other countries for petroleum, the better. Wind energy and other renewable energy sources can become alternatives to petroleum. Energy is used in almost everything and wind energy will help us rely less on countries that are unstable themselves right now.
If wind energy becomes more prominent as a source of electricity, our country and planet may have a much brighter future. Coal stores are running out and we cannot live forever on those sources. Our country will be more secure financially if we can find clean energy sources to prolong the life of the Earth.
