New wind farm 9 mi NE of Martha's Vinyard?

Any thoughts on this?

From Martha's Vineyard Times : Martha's Vineyard News Briefs

Cape Wind ruling expected soon

The federal government is expected to release its final report on the environmental impact of a proposed wind farm in Nantucket Sound in a matter of days, perhaps as early as next week. Energy Management Inc., developers of the Cape Wind project, expect the report will put a critical stamp of approval on the controversial energy project. The Mineral Management Service, part of the Department of Interior, is the federal agency conducting the review.

Cape Wind also needs approval from other state and federal permitting authorities before it can move forward.

"By the end of the winter, perhaps February or March, we hope to complete the permitting process," said Mark Rodgers, a spokesman for Cape Wind.

The Project plans call for 130 wind turbines to be located on Horseshoe Shoals, about nine miles northeast of Martha's Vineyard.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
