Cape Wind President Gordon pitches plan for first offshore wind farm in United States

Since 2000, an energy company in Massachusetts has been trying to build a 130-turbine wind farm in the waters off Nantucket, the first such project in the United States. Jim Gordon, president of Cape Wind Associates, discusses the lengthy approval process for the turbines, which he says could help alleviate high energy prices in Massachusetts. Gordon also examines the changing landscape for federal approval of offshore turbines, where the wind industry is headed next and why there is so much political resistance to wind farms from some lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
