Maybe the wealthy have too much wind 

Credit:  Letters | Newsday | April 25, 2021 | www.newsday.com ~~

Fairways North was taken out of the wind farm proposal because, according to Newsday, “with newer turbines approaching 800 feet tall, they would be visible at 15 miles from some of the most expensive homes in the nation on the East Hampton and Southampton shores.” But “a previously state-awarded project called Empire Wind will be 15 nautical miles from the shore in Nassau County, near Long Beach.”

So it’s OK for the people in Long Beach to have to look out at the wind farm, but it can’t be allowed to happen for the rich and famous in the Hamptons. If there has ever been a more blatant example of privilege for the wealthy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it.
