Victory for Cape Wind!

Interior Secretary Kenneth Salazar announced this morning that the Cape Wind project between Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard! There has been incredible opposition to this project from everyone from Ted Kennedy (god rest his soul) and more recently native American tribes, who someone convinced to complain that their ancestors sacred sites would be disturbed. Funny that they didn't complain until Cape Wind seemed sure of getting approved! You can read about the early difficulties of the project in this excellent book by a local journalist.
This will be the first of many off-shore wind projects (see this map from the New York Times today.
