Transcript When the mighty turbines and generators are at work, this stream, the Dnieper, will grind out millions of kilowatt-hours of energy. In the distant Siberian taiga, where the tsarist government used to torture those who fought in freedom's cause, the Angara water power station will account for 2 million h. p. The gradual harnessing of the huge resources of water power in the Caucasus already referred to is now in progress. At the confluence of the Aragva and Kura Rivers, below the ruins of the ancient monastery sung by Lermontov ("Where, like two sisters embracing, the Aragva and the Kura mingle their waters"), we see today the embodiment of our poetry of toil, the Zemo-Avchal hydroelectric power station, on which Lenin's benign, shrewd eyes are steadfastly directed from his monument nearby. In concluding the discussion of our water power resources, I must reiterate that our study of this source of wealth so far has been entirely inadequate. Wind Power Wealth of the U.S.S.R. According to calculations made by Arrhenius, the world's total wind power capacity is 5,000 times the power capacity of coal consumed in a year. In the U.S.S.R. we have most powerful winds in the northwestern and southeastern parts of the Caucasus. We all know about the strong north winds of Novorossyisk and Baku. The Central Aerodynamic Institute which has investigated the subject sets down the average annual wind power capacity available for utilisation in the European part of the U.S.S.R.'alone as possibly 100 million h. p. Here again we have to deal with a question which has not been studied. Even the locale of the maximum wind power concentration has not yet been ascertained, nor 52
