Coast Guard Green-Lights Cape Wind Project

This article from the Cape Cod Times, Coast Guard Calls Proposed Offshore Wind Farm An Acceptable Risk reveals that the Coast Guard's preliminary review of the wind farm has determined the proposal would pose little risk to boaters. (perhaps someone should have told that to the boaters who held a rally to protest the projectlast week). In any event, the Coast Guard explained that any navigational risks are "manageable" and further, that the project could even aid in search-and-rescue missions. The Coast Guard's 31 page report has been presented to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for consideration in its environmental analysis of the project.
