Solar and wind seem to be the best so far.
yes indeed :)

Solar and Wind - these are the 2 best sources. And best because we don't harm nature or plunder nature for energy. I hope technology also improves to store and re-use energy generated from these sources through nature-friendly methods.

As you've identified, I think every surface that faces the sky should be installed with Solar Panels.

And the government should make the support improvement to solar panels transparent and promote recognition/deduct taxes for people who:
(1) Install solar panels at home / office
(2) Businesses that install solar panels and use batteries to store power for their use
(3) Spend that extra research to buy Electric/Hybrid cars - that use less fossil fuel and have bare minimum exhaust fumes

Especially in Australia, I see that most automobiles are over-priced and hybrid cars are more expensive (due to technology) whereas the government rebate should make them cheaper encouraging people to buy hybrids/electric cars!
In the Uk, I think there are some companies that pay you for any excess energy you from your solar panels. I think it is a great system.
I think Solar energy is the best, and it is the one we have tapped into least. If it were up to me, I would say that every new build had to have solar panels installed.
I believe solar is the way to go, wind is awesome but I remember reading not that long ago that a large wind farm - I can't remember where now - had actually slowed the planet's rotation down. The amount it slowed was infinitesimal, but I couldn't imagine the consequences of hundreds of solar farms might have. Solar seems to have no ill effects on the planet, there is an unlimited supply. A new study I read a couple of days ago declared that at our current global usage and with out current solar technology, we could actually harvest all our power needs via solar if we tried, our species just isn't trying hard enough because we are so addicted to fossil fuels.
A lot of birds also get killed by wind turbines.
I believe solar and wind energy are the two least damaging. Unlike geothermal energy or hydropower, which require some desctruction of ecosystems, solar and wind are pretty harmless. Moreover, solar panels are easily fitted to rooves, so no space is wasted.

Wind turbines might not damage the environment, but their blades often kill birds.
I wasn't aware of that. That's terrible. I would've imagined that they'd stay away from them.

Compared to the other manmade objects - power lines, cars, windows, pesticides - the number is significantly lower, but it does still happen.
