The advocacy group Environment Minnesota says Minnesota’s current investment in wind energy reduces the kind of pollution that’s connected with climate change. Wind energy’s reduction in greenhouse gasses is the equivalent of taking 757,000 cars off the road per year. Minnesota has also suffered from severe drought this year, and the group says wind power saves enough water to meet the needs of 59,800 Minnesotans.
