As a frequent visitor to , and devoted admirer of, Cape Cod–the herring were running last weekend (one of Ted Kennedy’s favorite events)–I am thrilled that the nation’s first offshore wind farm will be located in Nantucket Sound. This was opposed by fair-weather environmentalists like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (and, sadly, by his uncle) because it would occlude their water views. Tough luck!
I look forward to more wind farms in the neighborhood, perhaps one in Cape Cod Bay–on my favored side of the peninsula. I love the way windmills look. Even more, I love the non-carbonated energy they generate.
