In this article: https://users.physics.ox.ac.uk/~pierrehumbert/papers/BAMS_SFatm.pdf, Raymond Pierrehumbert discusses (among other things) how Kim Stanley Robinson deals with the terraformation of Mars. Pierrehumbert points out that while some ideas are good, others are not. Among the bad ones is, in his own words:
"Silliest of all are the windmills, which are supposed to heat the planet by using wind-generated electricity to drive heating coils. (I won’t insult the reader’s intelligence by spelling out why this wouldn’t work.)"
Please, feel free to insult my intelligence because I don't see why this couldn't happen. I don't think it's a perpetuum mobile, not from the 1st or 2nd class: indeed what I think is that the wind will produce electricity and by Joule effect this electricity dissipates heat. This heat, even small, would increase the planet's temperature and that would imply a positive feedback because with higher temperatures the winds will be stronger (although in the end the temperature in all the planet will reach an equilibrium), and stronger winds imply more electricity, and more heat dissipated by Joule effect and so on...
What do you think? Where am I wrong?
