Mass Fishermen, do you remember when the delegation asked Gov. Patrick to talk to the President? He did! About Cape Wind!!

Nantucket Sound is home to several species of endangered and protected birds and marine mammals and has been designated an Essential Fish Habitat. Cape Wind’s construction and operations would threaten this rich and fragile environment·  Located in an area with more than 200 days of fog per year and quickly changing weather, Cape Wind would create significant navigational hazards for thousands of commercial and,,, For example, a June 24, 2011, email (acquired through APNS FOIA requests) describes a request by the White House to include Cape Wind in an economic briefing for the President on the loan guarantee program: “The WH was very direct about what should be included in the slides so we don’t have much flexibility.” The email specifically stated that the White House wanted: “1 slide on status of Cape Wind (because he [the President] has heard from Gov.

11 years. That’s how long we’ve been waiting for the promise of Cape Wind: clean, renewable energy; new, green jobs; reduced air emissions and carbon pollution; energy at a predictable price over the long-term; and energy security. At a time when the evidence of global warming is overwhelming, and the need for jobs critical, unleashing the potential of this home-grown offshore wind project can only be a good thing.

This editorial is not accurate. This project is environmentally irresponsible. How any environmentalist can ignore the damage to the eco system that they crucify fishermen over, is obscene. To ignore the assult of the ocean bottom that will be supported with your short sighted position is revealing. 80% approve? Hogwash. This is an ocean destroying industrial complex.

Lets see if they post it.
