Episode Summary

Wind Farm Cape Cod
Wind farms are an eco-friendly power source but are they a blight on the landscape? It seems there are growing questions over where to build new wind farms. In Cape Cod, Massachusetts, we learn about a debate over a proposal to use wind power to replace electrical power plants. Some citizens argue that the building of a wind turbine taller than the Statue of Liberty creates a visual impact much the same as a power station. Others believe that these offshore wind farms will have a negative effect on local fisheries. Proponents believe this is the best site for a wind farm that harvests clean energy and is an ideal way to tap into one of the most inexhaustible and abundant wind resources in the United States.moreless
