Friday, April 30, 2010 - Gov't OKs 1st US offshore wind farm, off Mass. - Gov't OKs 1st US offshore wind farm, off Mass.

For some years now, whether or not this off shore wind farm was going to be built was heavily disputed.  On one hand, it is a great step closer to less reliance on fossil fuels as a means for energy.  However, to those living on Martha's Vineyard this wind farm off the coast is a sore subject.   Who wants their beautiful view of the ocean to be taken away with large wind mills?  Of course, there is also the economic factor.  With the construction of the large wind farm, real estate is going to plummet.  It's very interesting.  I recommend learning more about its benefits since the government decided it would pursue the construction of it.

I, for one, have always been for this and am glad to see that it's going to be built.
