NIMBYISM for the Rich: Forget the yard, I don't want it in the ocean!
I have just been told about an article over at USNews.com about the continued battle over wind power in the US. This time it's because of the airforce and radar! So if you are listening Iran, Syria, Korea...if you are edgy then worry no more just install some wind turbines and us military opporations will be rendered lame without arial support! Or maybe this is just political bullshit.
I would like to recap the story of cape wind at the many and varied obstacles that have been thrown in its way but I simply don't have a memory capable of recalling all of the anti-windfarm ingenuity that has been throw at it!
It really is starting to look like when it gets built an old energy paradigm will be over and a new age will be ushered in. I attribute the battle this significance because of the extent of the politicking and because it is a battle been fought against a background of exponential worldwide windpower growth and just as rapidly growing awareness of the impossibility of sustaining our current fossil fuel powered economies. Whether by way or reason or force climate change will -- hopefully sooner rather than later-- lead us to an exeptance of the new energy economy. . . ..
