Every home in the United Kingdom could be powered by offshore wind farms by 2020, says John Hutton, Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise, and Regulatory Reform. The long-titled Hutton said that investment in 7,000 turbines would admittedly change Britain’s coastline and raise energy costs in the short term, but would be “a major contribution towards meeting the E.U.’s target of 20 percent energy from renewable sources by 2020.” He adds, “We’ve got a choice as a country whether we rise to the challenge … or stick our head in the sand and hope [climate change] goes away. It is not going to go away.”
