Officals Move to Protect Cape Cod Project

The Bush administration and two influential senators weighed in Friday against a provision that would block a 130-turbine wind farm off Cape Cod, where some of Washington's most powerful have vacation retreats. Full Story

I agree with the fact that states should have a say in what is built off of their coast although I wish the wind farm would be built. The concerns they have brought up against it are not founded in fact. The addition of these wind turbines would in no way pose a hazard to the fish or fishing potential of the area. On the contrary they would improve the habitat.

Most might think this is strange but when I look off the coast of Louisiana and see all the oil rigs it looks like a sea of plenty to me. Those rigs are reefs to the fish and that is where I do most of my offshore fishing. Conversely when I visit the Florida coast I look out and see a desert in my minds eye. Point is the enviromental impacts are totally bogus. The REAL reason the wind farm is being opposed is because of the ability to see the beacons at night.

Although it's the real world, I'm getting a little sick of these corrupt,'alleged' powerful morons, politicians or not that think they are above the law and can control everything.
I lived in Palm Springs where they have one huge wind farm and it has caused less interference and pollution than all these 'almighty' idiots do when they blow their noses.

Maybe the right thing will be done here, after all. It was looking like Senator Kennedy and his friends might be able to kill this project, but now it appears that the administration is behind it, as well as quite a few congresspeople. The more I read about this, the more I am convinced it is a case of NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard). We can preach that we should be developing alternative forms of energy, but we also need to follow through and deliver. Some of our politicians (not to be confused with leaders) are trying to kill this project even though the majority of people realize it should proceed. See the following site more detailed info about this project........ www.capewind.org . We need to get serious about these types of projects.

So would you people who talk about wind farms like to see Army Base Fort Monroe become a national historic park!?
