Cape Cod Wind Farm Approved

The Interior Department has given the green light to a controversial 24-square-mile wind farm that would be built off the coast of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod. Strongly opposed for years by Sen. Edward Kennedy and other state residents, final federal approval of the proposed renewable energy station of 130 windmills isn’t expected until after President-elect Obama takes office. Kennedy maintains the idea “threatens the livelihood of Massachusetts’ fishermen.”
