More Time to Comment on Cape Wind

Now that the Cape Wind DEIS has issued , the Corps will extend the period for filing public comment as reported here in
Army Corps extends public comment time on Cape wind farm impact study
(AP)(11/23/04). The extension gives the public an additional 45 days beyond the 45 days initially provided, which seems reasonable in light of upcoming holidays as well as the size of the 3800 page report.

From my own perspective, Cape Wind's already waited several years to get this far in the process. In that context, an additional 45 more days isn't much, particularly where it can help to ensure that the project withstands public scrutiny and judicial review.
