To all of you who made a birthday contribution.
Wind Watch still needs help, though. If you did not already, please give now. Every dollar (and euro, yuan, pound, krone, zloty, ruble, rupee, shekel, etc.) helps to keep us on line and independent.

Your articles over the past several years on Cape Wind’s efforts to “take over” Nantucket Sound have been very informative. However, the last one was devastating!
“Cape Wind garners final government permit,” your Jan. 8 story, means the end of the end for any hope that this will not come to pass.
About one year ago during the Scott Brown Senate campaign, then-candidate Brown stated that putting windmills in Nantucket Sound would be like putting them in the Grand Canyon.
The issuance of the last permit really is a shame. We have the most beautiful views of Nantucket Sound from Craigville Beach. On a hot, humid, sunny day in July, 1,000 or more tourists will now see windmills and hear foghorns. Such a shame: another American treasure gone … and gone forever.
