Cape wind ban gets support
A wind-power moratorium on just a portion of a town doesn't make sense. That's according to the Jefferson County Planning Board, which considered Cape Vincent's proposed six-month moratorium for wind power development in the lakefront and river front districts at its meeting Tuesday afternoon.

6 years of studies, that's rich. In those 6 years the developers have been unable to locate any short eared owls that have been documented by both the DEC and local birdwatchers. In 6 years they chose to look for Blanding Turtles in November, and found only two dead turtles while they have also been DEC documented in the Ctr Rt 9 & Pelo Rd area. Their sound studies have been done in the loudest areas they could find in order to establish a distorted ambient number.
Their studies are pre-packaged for all Wind Projects EIS documents and then names and places changed to fit the project.
