An Open Letter to Secretary Ken Salazar

Dear Mr. Salazar,

I have been a journalist on Cape Cod for 45 years and yet never witnessed the undemocratic and truly un-American nastiness of the opponents to America's first offshore wind farm here.

Here is the link to send a letter to Interior Secretary Salazar.

If you reject this lawful, and painstakingly studied project to proceed YOU WILL DESTROY AMERICA'S RENEWABLE ENERGY REVOLUTION which you say you and our President want for our country.

If a private company plays by YOUR rules, twice, not once, and hazards $30 million of his own, and you still deny its application, no entrepreneur with a brain or a bankroll will ever trust this process again.

You will condemn America to the greed of foreign fossil fuel profiteers, and we will forever be dependent on Arab oil.

I am 80-years-old, and I thought I had seen it all until this, but for the sake of my grandchildren AND YOURS, do not wait a minute after March 1, 2010 to accept your own department's thorough EIS for Cape Wind and start America's renewable energy revolution today.
