Cape Wind is a proposed offshore wind farm that would be constructed miles offshore from Nantucket Sound. If constructed, it will provide 75 percent of the energy for the Cape and Islands. It will also “decimate the view of Nantucket sound,” or well a meager 14 percent of Nantucket residents think so… including Senator Ted Kennedy. I found this video on The Green Miles, but it’s too hilarious not to share!

A classic case of NIMBY (not in my backyard). Given that the windmills will appear as 1.5 inch dots on the horizon… this seems like  a very trivial problem, and the windmills should and will be constructed.
