Thumbs down Cape Cod wind turbines - Realm of problems for boaters

According to this website. http://www.saveoursound.org/visual.html
The 1st test one is in place. Ck. out some of the proposed photo"s. What a shame if this is built. Not to mention loss of boating area etc.etc. If it happens here who knows who"s next?

it will get blocked do you have any idea how anal (an influential)the residents of nantucket are?

even if it barely visible. If they can minimize teh area it takes up and make them less visible its not a bad idea, after all we are WAY to averdependant on oil for power. If teh electric companies keep uising oil and so forth there won;t be any left for us boater with big blocks to feed!

They are all over the SoCal valleys. Thousands of them. It's an amazing site.

I read somewhere that the animal rights groups had shut down many of the windmills in California because they killed too many birds.

Take a moment and submit one of these pre-written opposition letters here.

Spare me.

We are on opposite sides of the spectrum here---I think it's the best idea to come down the pike since drilling in Alaska.

I live virtually within view of the proposed site, and I'd far rather see windmills than the smog chugging out of the Somerset COAL-FIRED electrical plant (also in my backyard).

Wind and solar are by far, some of the most appealing means of power for which we could ever hope.

Unlimited, renewable, and free (facility construction aside).

They gotta put the GD things up somewhere, and I don't think they're that ugly anyway---'make for a challenging slalom course at 60MPH!!!

Shape of things to come we should get used to it! And itís free; unlike the old nuclear generated electric too cheap to even meter fairy tale.
