In response to: "Clean Power Survey to show vast support for State leadership role, Cape Wind" August 13, 2007.
To the Editor:
I would like to say that the elected officials in Massachusetts are not doing enough to embrace the Cape Wind Project.
The fact that Senator Kerry is doing nothing to push this landmark project forward is mind-boggling. Even more disturbing is that Representative Markey, the Chairman of the Select Committee on Global Warming, is not openly endorsing this project. Senator Kennedy's opposition to the project is absurd.
Cape Wind will be a crucial example for other offshore wind projects across the nation. Finally this country will be moving in the right direction in energy policy. If these politicians took one day to talk with the people of Denmark, who have had successful offshore wind farms for years, they would realize how little an impact these projects have on the environment and on tourism.
Clean energy needs to happen now. Massachusetts has a great opportunity to become a leader in the clean energy revolution. This Clean Power Survey will show that the vast majority of the residents of Massachusetts support Cape Wind. These politicians should wake up and support this amazing opportunity for renewable energy.
