Journalists collaborate on book exposing politics of wind farm
Describes blatant attempt by Delahunt to steal the democratic process
That's the start of an insightful sneak review of the new tell-all tome devoted to the skulduggery behind the blocking of America's entire offshore wind power industry.
Martha's Vineyard Gazette's Ian Fein goes beyond a review of the book itself and reports his interviews with the two authors of "Cape Wind" Wendy Williams and Robert Whitcomb.
Names names and tarnishes reputations
Among the scathing indictments in the book according to Fein are these;
"Cape Wind: Money, Celebrity, Class, Politics, and the Battle for Our Energy Future on Nantucket Sound" is due to be published in ten days and has already received extensive publicity due to the author's long association with the story. MS Williams was a reporter for the Cape Cod Times which has mounted what has been described as an editorial jihad against the renewable wind power project having written over three score lead editorials excoriating the project and its builders.
Mr. Whitcomb is a highly respected journalist who is presently the Editorial Page editor and a Vice President of the Providence Journal, that state's largest daily.
"We're phonies in this country..."
Whitcomb tells this reviewer, Ian Fein of The Vineyard Gazette, “We’re phonies in this country. We say we we’re in favor of energy independence, but we don’t embrace it if it involves a monetary inconvenience or changing the way things look. Environmentalism out here has largely become a land protection thing for rich people.”
