Save your life...Wind is energy for life.
The Altamont Pass wind farms near Livermore, California produce power using the wind — a clean, natural, and endless/renewable energy source from our Earth. Because of the 580 MW Altamont Pass wind farms, natural gas-fired power is avoided. Fossil fired power plants, including natural gas, cause extensive damage to human health, wildlife, and the climate by producing millions of tons of toxic air pollution each year. Because wind is a clean, natural source, the Altamont Pass wind farms prevent/SAVE the following over 20 years:
64 premature deaths
42 heart attacks
620 asthma attacks
4,400 lost work/sick days
26,000 restricted activity days
$479 million in health costs
45,000 bird deaths
Therefore, Altamont Pass wind farms prevent/save pollution from fossil-fired power plants, resulting in a reduction of deaths and injuries caused by pollution to humans and wildlife alike.
Choose wind power to Save your life. Wind is energy for life.
