comment Is it possible that windmills can consume the wind?
But, are there physics related answers to the question? Have we previously been able to successfully harvest wind vs. other resources because of a physics related problem. If so, what problem, and what solution?

Can you help me understand why questions of wind and wind energy storage are not physics topics? If not physics, to what category would this sort of question belong?

Ok, I can appreciate the answers. However, if wind is truly a plentiful and renewable, doesn't destroy the environment when harvested, what has driven man to build dependence upon other energy sources, which are costly to harvest, harm the environment when harvested, and when utilized? I understand that the are challenges with the storing of wind energy, but the efforts put toward other resources could certainly have resolved that issue by now.
