I found this site that lists many pros and cons of fossil fuels and this one for wind power.


In particular, I would say that the two biggest benefits of wind power are environmental friendliness and renewability while it's two biggest disadvantages are high price/difficulty of construction and lower efficiency/reliability of energy produced.

For fossil fuels, I think that the largest advantages are ease of use and efficiency and the greatest disadvantages are damage to the environment and non-renewability.
