Signal of change / Global warming will weaken wind power, study predicts

"Wind farms are key to tackling climate change but warming will significantly cut wind power across US and UK, though Australia will see winds strengthen."

interesting insight, and not an issue that I've seen flagged before. Only one study though, but might be a precursor to more research:

Global warming will weaken wind power, study predicts

Wind farms are key to tackling climate change but warming will significantly cut the power of the wind across northern mid-latitudes, including the US, the UK and the Mediterranean, according to new research. However, some places, including eastern Australia, will see winds pick up.
