At it again, 6 groups file to stop Cape Wind

From California to Cape Cod, 6 groups have filed what is expected to be many lawsuits trying to stop Cape Wind. The latest physco babble is that the government has failed to collect data on migration of birds and whales. The two birds in question are the rare roseate tern and the piping plover which are smaller than my hand and beach at Kalmus Park in Hyannis.

Cape wind has the endorsement of Mass Audubon and Greenpeace.

After what has happened in the Gulf of Mexico and what some say is the most devastating environmental disaster in this countries history, one has to wonder why anyone or group would stand in the way of Cape Wind.

I read that it will cost more for electricity generated from these things than it does for what we are using now. I don’t know about anyone else, but I can not afford for my electric bill to go up, even if it is better for the environment. I don’t want to be dependent on oil, but if the choice is between cheaper electricity from oil plants or paying a higher electric bill for wind and not having the money to feed my family, I chose the oil plant electricity.

You have got to be kidding. Still people opposing this after the BP disaster? How can they get away with this? Can they really stop this from happening at this point Pillsbury?

As far as I can understand, these law suits are a desperate attempt by the opposition who have plenty of money and to much time on their hands. The feds already approved this after 9 years of vetting.

SF... according to what I know, the price for electricity produced will be just a few pennies per KWH above what it is now.

And it's my guess you will see hundreds of utility grade turbines all along our coast driving down the cost of electricity.

The BP disaster will most assuredly make all forms of renewable energy a better plan for mother earth
