It's Nothing New

Wind power is nothing new?archeologists in Iran have discovered that people living there over 5,000 years ago used it to run their kilns.

PressTV.com quotes archeologist Omran Garajian as saying, "Being located near Lut Desert, where wind blows constantly and in fixed directions, had caused the prehistoric inhabitants of the area to use wind as a reliable source of energy. Exerts have identified a kiln, which has been constructed in the same direction as the local winds blow." (Wind power helped increase the temperature in the kilns used for melting metals). "They have also found a fireplace, which seems to have worked with wind power. The structures date back to about 3500 to 3300 BCE."
