NIMBYs Have Met Their Match

The NIMBYs - Not In My Back Yard crowd have tried to keep wind farms out of Martha's Vineyard. They are the same crowd who complains about the environment but will not lift a finger to resolve the problem.

I do find it rather Ironic that we can't drill for oil off shore on a platform but we can do this. The foot print is about the same but the actual functional energy over the long haul will be less. Wind is green but not always reliable.

At $120+ per barrel for oil we are going to see a lot of alternatives come to the market place. Maybe we are finally going to take this seriously.
