Winds sweeping through the Great Plains once robbed the Farm Belt of its future, stripping away overworked topsoil and creating the dreaded Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Today, those winds are bringing new hope to declining rural communities across the American heartland—and nowhere is wind’s promise more palpable than in Cloud County, Kansas, where soaring turbines are boosting farm incomes and creating jobs. Philip Warburg, author of Harvest the Wind, introduces the farmers, factory workers, biologists, and high-tech entrepreneurs behind this green economy-powered resurgence —all players in a transformative industry taking hold across America and around the globe. Denis Hayes, president and CEO of the Bullitt Foundation, former director of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and national coordinator of the first Earth Day, introduces Warburg.
