Wind Power

Author Robert Whitcomb takes humorous look at Cape Wind debate

This fall, the Minerals Management Service is expected to release a report on the environmental impact of the controversial Cape Wind project -- a project that would place wind turbines off the coast of Massachusetts. During today's OnPoint, Robert Whitcomb author of the book, "Cape Wind: Money, Celebrity, Class, Politics, and the Battle for our Energy Future on Nantucket Sound," discusses the debate over Cape Wind from its inception. He describes the different characters that have played a major role in the debate and takes a comedic approach at discussing the back-and-forth that has permeated not only the affected communities in Massachusetts but also Capitol Hill.
