We are about 20 years behind Denmark and some other countries in wind power, but stats show that we are coming up fast - lots of turbines going in.

The Cape Wind thing has been fought by most of the rich pols and business people who have places there. Folks might recognize some names like Kennedy and Kerry, however the big push is from groups backed and financed by William I. Koch - a coal, oil and gas magnate who also has a place on the cape.
Alliance forms a new Anti-Wind Farm lobbying arm :: Cape Cod Today :: Cape Cod News and Information

Koch spent $620,000 lobbying against it in 2006 and 2007. Oh, newest figures show about 1.5 million.

He runs the largest private corporation in America, and should be familiar to sailors as the winner of the 1992 Americas Cup. (Yacht: America).

Without giving the gory details, it is a strange alliance of folks fighting against it....the Koch brothers are the ultimate oil men!
We are about 40 years behind France and Japan in nuclear power and fast breeder reactors, so let's hope we get a lot of those started, too.

Best Regards,

tommays All the ones they have tryed off the South Shore of Long Island have gotten stoped by NIMBY AND the price is REALLY WILD which has also caused issues

tommays It will be interesting when a wind farm gets hit with the BIG ONE

bobmcgov Really. Aren't there any backward neighborhoods in New England where we can stick a coal-fired or nuclear power plant? Surely, the unwashed classes would be grateful to have such a thing.

smackdaddy Yeah - but if they turn them up high enough it could create a sweet breeze. I've always noticed how windy it gets when they have those things on.
