The Global Wind Energy Council just released some fascinating 2008 year-end data, and there are two big stories that are grabbing everyone's attention. First, there is the news that America has overtaken Germany to become the global leader in wind power installations. But the second story is even more eye-catching. China's total wind power capacity has doubled for the fourth year in a row, going from 6 GW of total capacity at the end of 2007 to 12 GW by the end of 2008.
