Your comment follows the Slashdot standard of not reading the article you are commenting on. The study was not about carbon footprint or the total life cycle costs of wind power. The study suggests that "using wind turbines to meet 10 percent of global energy demand in 2100 could cause temperatures to rise by one degree Celsius in the regions on land where the wind farms are installed, including a smaller increase in areas beyond those regions." So the study is looking at possible local effects of wind farms, not the global climate.
