About the Cover

This photo of the Backbone Mountain wind farm near Thomas, West Virginia, was taken October 10, 2010. The United States was the global leader in wind turbine installations in 2008, with 31 percent of the market. The United States and China are in a trade dispute over China’s subsidies for wind turbines — a situation that is currently under investigation by the U.S. Trade Representative.
