Wind Farms Create Their Own Clouds Wind farms receive a lot of praise in the fight against climate change. Along with solar, they're often pitched as our last hope for energy independence.

Of course, all it takes is a windy day to clear the cloud cover. Studies has shown that large wind farms can even change weather patterns. However, researchers "acknowledged the hypothetical wind farm was far larger than anything humans are likely to build," but if Department of Energy projections for wind farming are met by 2030, "it could probably have an effect," says James McCaa of 3Tier, Inc. , a renewable energy forecasting company based in Seattle.

The style with skull like cartoon figures are not that special, but the overall style is. "Chewie" has been very quiet about what this project is really about.
