Wind farms going up

In spite of the best efforts of the people whose views will soon be permanently altered, the Feds have given their approval to the $1 billion Cape Wind wind farm. The lease pitted sometime environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. defending his home turf against an array of forces including advocates of green energy and apparent capitalists looking to profit from the windmills. Kennedy argued that the plant wasn't economic: that the costs per kilowatt hour were much higher than safe alternatives. Looks like we'll soon find out!
