Former energy chairman’s actions speak the loudest  

Credit:  Cape Cod Times | June 06, 2014 | www.capecodonline.com ~~

Wind power has been all the rage in Massachusetts since the 2008 Green Communities Act. Megan Amsler, former Falmouth Energy Committee chairwoman, has jumped onto the offshore wind energy “gravy train” with her recent sales pitch to the Massachusetts Wind Working Group.

In announcing her new partnership venture she claimed to have deep concern for the safety and welfare of offshore wind workers. An admirable concern, yet one that seemingly separates from her position held while acting as head of the town’s Energy Committee. What of the safety and welfare of Falmouth residents close to land-based town turbines?

Could it be “past words and deeds” reveal a different truth than what she has claimed to the Wind Working Group? Could it be that actions speak louder than her words?

In totality, during the years of controversy, Cape Wind and Falmouth’s wind energy project make one thing clear: Both have met with costly resistance and costly court litigation.

Regarding commercial-scaled wind energy projects, on land or at sea, what shade of green tilts profit (progress)?
