The proposal for what would be America'sfirst offshore wind farm is facing strong opposition from a small group of powerful politicians,and wealthy inhabitants of Nantucket despite majority public support and support from the White House. The proposal for what would be America's first offshore wind farm is facing strong opposition from a small group of powerful politicians, despite majority public support and support from the White House. It seems this proposal is facing some stiff opposition to some politicians in the United States heaven knows why; Australia uses this system; true we don’t use it offshore and this system is used on shore in the USA; one example is the one at Horned Toad Hills near Mojave. California, USA. Spoils the looks of their waterfront backyards I guess. Mainly the opposition is from the wealthy but this proposal if given the green light to go ahead will produce 420 megawatts of energy; to me this sounds like a good thing but others do not. And it actually has the backing of a majority support in the white house, whilst 71% of Massachusetts residents also support it. Still if you read all the links it may give you some idea the Danes think it a good scheme; as do these folk here. The Daily Kos won’t have a bar of it at all; to be honest I never believed anything I read on it regarding wind farms at all; well very little anyway and I read their publication fairly regular as well and agree with quite a bit in a lot of their articles. This could help you make your mind up I guess who knows. Image from Google Images.
