Wind power was used to tame the high seas, and now it is being used to create energy. This power will be the topic of an episode of Behind the Scenes hosted by James Earl Jones. He will be joined by experts in the field, from energy, environmental and economic areas. This new segment is scheduled to be completed in late 2016.
There are wind turbines popping up across the Midwest in the United States, from Texas to Kansas and far north into the Dakotas, there are fields that have what looks like a windmill from a science fiction movie. Wind is a constant in the Midwest, and is a natural area for harnessing this natural phenomena. As the nation seeks to become less dependent on oil as an energy source, wind is seen as a source with great possibility. Wind turns the blades that turn the turbines that create energy. Many electric companies are now using wind for a sizable percentage of the energy they produce. It is obviously clean and low cost, but the cost of construction of the turbines will be discussed. Another aspect is the environmental impact. There is less pollution but what does this mean for other areas is another topic.
Behind The Scenes is not released or made by PBS, but it is created for public television. It is aired on stations around the nation. Episodes are filmed with the highest standards available for professional television. The show is hosted by well known actor James Earl Jones, and there are highly qualified writers, videographers and producers working on this show.
