This week, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar approved the long-embattled Cape Wind offshore wind power project. The approval means that Cape Wind Associates can proceed with their plans to build a 130-turbine, 420-megawatt wind farm 5 miles off the Nantucket shoreline. Opponents of the project, citing everything from aesthetic concerns to the potential presence of ancient Native American burial grounds, have vowed to fight the project in the courts. We'll talk about the decision, and what it means for other renewable power projects in the country.
