The first U.S. offshore wind energy project was approved on April 28 by Obama officials who lauded it as a model of renewable energy production. The project consists of 130 wind turbine generators to be installed in Nantucket Sound.
A lawsuit against this project was filed in Federal Court on June 25. Guess who filed the lawsuit. Probably a big, greedy oil company run by evil fat cuts who are bent on destroying the environment in order to line their own pockets, right? No, the lawsuit against the first U.S. offshore energy project was filed by - - environmental groups!! You heard it right; environmental groups are challenging the first wind energy project. They say the project violates the Endangered Species Act by failing to protect birds and whales.
How sweet it is.
