US Sells Sea Areas For Offshore Wind Farms

A few weeks ago, I commented on how Canada is selling parts of its Atlantic coast to BP, Shell and other oil companies, and on how these deals could mean new oilrigs off the coast of Nova Scotia. This week, the US is also opening up parts of their

I know I can count on one of my senators & my congressman to support renewable energy. We have to fight to make it possible!
"I can only hope that these attacks will lose their steam in the coming months. After all, great leaps in sustainable energy development from France, Germany and Japan have all greatly increased public confidence in renewables. On the other hand, the Alberta Oil Sands, the BP oil spill, and the countless lawsuits connected to fracking have all decreased the once-positive image of the fossil fuel sector. With enough luck and with enough government backing, 2013 will be the year we see the rise of offshore wind farms instead of offshore oilrigs."

It's pretty weird that the coast can be "sold" but a lot of energy can be generated from offshore wind farms as high wind speeds at sea can be efficient.

I'm all for wind farms and renewable energy but not at the expense of the environment and especially not when greed is involved. That's just plain wrong. Thanks Cher.

Now if only the government would take away the $ it gives to Big Oil and put it toward these kinds of projects, we would not need the XL pipeline.
