Where e’er the wind(farm) blows…

This will be an interesting project to follow…

“The Obama administration has approved what would be the nation’s first offshore wind farm, off Cape Cod, two government officials briefed on the decision confirmed Wednesday, inching the U.S. closer to harvesting an untapped domestic energy source — the steady breezes blowing along its vast coasts…

…But Cape Wind met with heavy resistance from people who wanted it moved out of the sound, and its opponents are expected to continue to try to derail the project in court.

Critics say the project endangers wildlife and air and sea traffic, while marring historic vistas. The late U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy fought Cape Wind, calling it a special interest giveaway. The wind farm would be visible from the Kennedy family compound in Hyannisport.”
