By putting these wind farms in the water, I would hope their longevity was discussed

Europe has a history with these....they seem to work without NEARLY as much environmental damage as oil rigs!

This s really good news. We now have one off the coast of Maine that is really doing great. The winds in the Gulf of Maine are ideal for more turbines.
