Wind turbines could warm local climates up to ten times faster than the natural rate, a study has shown.
Air temperatures around four of the world’s largest wind farms have increased by up to 0.72C in a decade, researchers have found.
In contrast, Earth’s average temperature has warmed by only 0.8C since 1900.
As more wind farms are built, temperature increases may have a long-term impact on wildlife and regional weather…
