    have to shut down during certain times of the day due to neighbor complaints about noise. One company has been trying to build a bunch of them 10 miles of the coast of cape.

    The oligarchs (including the Kennedy family) have been resisting with all the money and power they have to muster.

    Walter Cronkite too and then he changed his mind just before he died and became a big supporter.  He's resting easier because of that decision.

    •  The Cape Wind site is far from ideal (0+ / 0-)

      I believe in the US the first generation of offshore wind needs to be out of sight, they need to be good neighbors, if you will.

      Projects like the Atlantic Wind Connection, 360 miles long from NJ to Virginia Beach, 10 to 20 miles offshore, 1700 4mw turbines are the way too go.

      Too many people of my generation or older (Donald Trump) dont see wind turbines as awesome things of beauty. Until these nay sayers die off, things wont change.
