Burning fossil fuels, especially coal, leads to climate change, ocean acidification and air pollution, such as there is in Beijing, China. It is damaging the planet and killing people.

On the other hand, wind power does not pollute the air at all, is safe, harmless and beneficial to the hosting community.
