The Positive Side of Wind Energy Development

Even as the controversy continues over the Cape Wind Project, two articles from the press in that region recognize some of the benefits that an offshore wind project might bring. The first , entitled
Finding Alternatives to Oil Spills in Our Bay South Coast Today, S-T.com (4/30/03) notes of a recent oil spill and argues that obtaining power from sources such as offshore wind could help avoid future spills and the adverse impacts they bring. The second, entitled Wind Power to Ease Failing Air Quality, Yarmouth Port (May 5, 2003) argues that wind power, because it is emission free, can play an important role in improving air quality.
