I think we should ask them to REMAKE "The Perfect Storm", only instead of sword boats captained by macho risk-takers like Billy Tyne, we can have the storms hitting wind turbines off the coast of Eastham or MV!

The ONLY human error will be the ditzes in the labs on land and in the State House, if passed!

BTW, lest you think I'm pro-nuke--I live in W. Mass, RIGHT down the road from the freaking Yankee nuke! Think that makes me feel good? NO!

Point: Wind is NOT limited to the coast (how about the top of Mt. Greylock???).

The turbines will be designed to handle winter storms. They won't chop up birds either. Ask the people in Hull if you don't believe. And don't worry about the radioactive waste. Oh, never mind there is none.

They are beautiful in my opinion!

There are no glowing or pulsating nuke plants in the United States. Neither are there any Cherbobyl-type reactors in the US. I live less than a mile from a nuke plant and it is a beautiful sight. All that power and no pollution.
