If this doesn’t send Ted “Pass the Scotch” Kennedy into near fatal conniption fits nothing will.
The last environmental hurdle has been cleared and Fat Man Teddy’s “pristine” coastal environment is about to be sullied by the long planned wind farm:
The nation’s first proposed offshore wind-energy project cleared its most formidable hurdle yesterday as the US Minerals Management Service declared that the wind farm off Cape Cod would have little lasting impact on wildlife, navigation, and tourism.
The agency’s nearly 2,000-page draft environmental impact statement makes clear that the federal government is inclined to approve construction of the 130 turbines in Nantucket Sound, 5 miles from the nearest coastline, unless major new concerns arise during a public comment period. Federal approval would probably come late this year or early next year, and remaining state permits are not expected to be a major obstacle, given that Governor Deval Patrick is in favor of the project.
To say nothing of Robert Kennedy Jr. who should be into his second or third brain aneurism after reading this story.
And BTW, unless Mitt Romney has changed his stance on this project he might want a cardiolgist on standby.
