WIND POWER

April 1, 2007

There is a local wind farm project that is being debated and approved for use to supply power to Cape Cod and the islands.

I highly approve of this project as it will reduce the limited resources we have available to power our planet’s draining electricity needs [ie. coal and oil].

There is a quote in this article about the fears of opponents of such projects,

“But opponents fear the environmental and economic effects on Cape Cod’s tourist and fishing industries. They warn the turbines would pose navigational and radar hazards. They also say the turbines could hurt the views of some multimillion-dollar oceanfront homes.”

Tourism

  1. Tourism is suppose to benefit the environment, not damage it.  Think about all the electricity the tourists use to enjoy their “vacation” lifestyle, from reading a book at night to turning on the bathroom light so they can poop into the ocean.
  2. This is another opportunity to generate eco-tourism dollars by providing tours to interested tourists who want to learn more about how such wind farms can reduce the need for coal/oil. 

Fishing

  1. We are already over-harvesting our fishes from the ocean. Be quiet and go fish elsewhere!
  2. This would actually allow us to promote a santucary for our fishes to reproduce and create more fishes for the opponents to over-harvest from our ocean a little further away from the shore.
  3. By providing a santuary to raise more fishes, we can actually make more money because of more fishes to buy and eat and then poop back into the ocean using the electricty we are saving the planet from our wind farm with.

Multi-million dollar home views???

  1. To the rich people, you already spent millions to rip up precious resources to build your home on natural resources.
  2. You already spent millions to damage our enviroment by spending on oil to supply transportation of materials to your home site for development.
  3. You already spent thousand of dollars to waste electricty with coal/oil to heat your home the 70 percent of the time you are not there. Hence the name “vacation homes”. 

Side note to multi-million dollar homes and democratics

“Democratic U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy, whose family’s Hyannis Port compound would have a clear view of the farm, opposes it while Gov. Deval Patrick, who says the state needs to invest in new energy technology, supports it.”

To the Kennedys – get off your high horse!  You throw wasteful parties at your compound where thousand of people have wasted oil boating, driving and flying to your compound.  And not only have all these people wasted our resources, you also have wasted electricity to entertain these guests, therefore driving up the cost of electricity for year-round residents.  Oh, and not to mention all the Kennedy poop that is dumped into the ocean.
