Submission + - Wind farms might not reduce pollution

catbutt writes: "According to a NYTimes article, which references a National Academy of Sciences study, wind farms may not be effective at reducing polution. The logic seems a bit odd, though, because it says that the reason it won't reduce certain types of pollutants is that there "was already a cap on sulfur emissions and one on nitrogen oxides was likely to follow. Is is possible such caps are a bad idea, then, if they cause people to not bother reducing their output of pollutants, since all it would end up doing is allowing someone else to pollute more?"

To spot the expert, pick the one who predicts the job will take the longest and cost the most.
