VIII. Read the following text and decide whether the statements are true (T) or false (F).

Wind energy: yes or no?

           Recent political debates and press articles have outlined the positives and negatives of onshore and offshore wind farms, comparing wind power to other low-carbon energy sources, and fossil fuels. The question is whether we should continue investing in wind energy production; rely on other renewable sources, such as solar, wave, tidal or hydroelectric power; or stick to the already overused non-renewable resources, such as natural gas, shale gas, oil and coal.

          Onshore wind energy is generated by wind turbines located on land, whilst offshore energy is produced by turbines located out at sea, or on bodies of fresh water such as lakes. Both turbine types generate electricity by using the energy of the moving air. They already play an important role in generating renewable electricity in the UK, providing over a quarter of the renewable electricity produced. The government estimates that this production reduces CO2 emissions by six million tonnes annually, which amounts to a considerable reduction in greenhouse gas production. Onshore wind turbines are also one of the most affordable renewable energy sources, costing half as much as offshore wind farms, and a quarter as much as it costs to install solar panels. Another pro is the fact that it is slightly cheaper to generate electricity using the wind than a nuclear power station, and, of course, it does not produce dangerous waste that has to be disposed of. Fossil fuel based energy sources are cheaper than wind power at the moment, but this is expected to change in years to come, with technological advances occurring constantly.

          The main criticism of wind farms is that they only produce electricity when there is sufficient wind, and at those times when the wind force is insufficient, fossil fuels have to be used as a backup. Another problem is the visual impact they have on the landscape. They are spread over large areas of land compared to other energy sources, for instance nuclear power stations, and a large number of people find them unsightly, or even noisy if they live nearby. Environmentalists also argue that the turbines have a negative impact on wildlife, particularly on various bird species, as birds are often injured when they fly into the turbines. However, the harm caused by wind turbines is minimal compared to that caused by, for example, toxic waste produced during coal mining or oil drilling.

          We need to find the right balance between creating and using more affordable electricity and protecting our environment. The best option will probably remain a combination of onshore and offshore wind power, together with other renewable energies and fossil fuel-based energies.





Onshore and offshore power production are similar in how much they cost.



According to the article, energy from fossil fuels is cheaper than that produced by wind power.



The disadvantage of wind turbines is that they do not supply energy consistently.



Environmentally-minded people have objections to wind turbines as they are harmful to animals.



The author of the article is generally against using wind power, as it has many disadvantages.
