Humanity could survive with only the wind energy

According to a USA humanity could produce the energy it takes to survive using only wind power plants. Not only that, it would be sufficient to achieve an appropriate facility on American soil to be able to produce enough energy for the entire planet.
In particular, it would be sufficient to build a network of 2.5 megawatt turbines that operate at just 20% of their capacity to produce an amount of energy equivalent to more than 40 times the current global consumption of electricity, equal to 5 times the consumption Global of any type of energy.
The study, available on this page in pdf format, led by Michael McElroy, professor at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University in Boston has been published in the journal of the American Academy of Sciences.
