    Is he kidding? Windmills 8 miles offshore aren't going to ruin anything. I've seen large windfarms along the hills of Pennsylvania, there is nothing objectionable about them at all. In fact considering what they represent I'd say they look great. Someone should ask him if he'd rather have some coal plants in town instead.

    NIMBYism, in all its forms, is rarely logical...

    Hoped when I opened this that it was in the United States.
    We should do something like this with all the space between us and New York City.
