Environmental groups plan to file suit in federal court, accusing the Obama Administration of violating the Endangered Species Act with its approval of the Cape Wind project in Nantucket Sound.

A single wind turbine stands at the Woods Hole Research Center on Cape Cod. There is strong opposition to a proposal to erect 130 wind turbine generators in Nantucket Sound, between Cape Cod and the resort islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

In what I consider the most hypocritical item of the week - (and this beat out all the Democrats and MoveOn.Com who HATED General Petraeus and now sing his praises as the savior of US foreign policy because Mr. Obama 'friend-ed' him) - on one US coastline you have environmentalists holding hands on the beach to halt all oil drilling, (wearing green helmets made of plastic. Which is made of oil) and on another US coastline, you've got another set of environmentalists filing suit to keep their holy grail totems of 'green energy' from being built to save some birds.
YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS, YOU IDIOTS
I'm almost completely convinced that environmentalism has nothing to do with the environment, and everything to do with bringing down 'evil' capitalism. No energy source....coal, oil, gas, wind, solar, nuclear is acceptable to these people. But they still run out and stand in line to buy an iPhone 4. "I want my green energy, but I still will fight to the death for NIMBY. Not in My Back Yard." I don't know, I would think that a true ClimateFaither having a windmill on their property would be showing leadership and almost certain smugness. Why don't you hippies go form a commune - or better - join the Amish? No, the Amish probably wouldn't put up with their brand of bullsh*t.
Actually, I think this brand of environmentalism shows their true nature - they're so self loathing that they believe in the eradication of humans is the 'final solution' to save their precious earth. Not them though. Like other faiths - religious faith - they're the saved ones. These people are more dangerous than the Heaven's Gate cultists -- at least those souls took their lives and left the earth for what they believed in. These morons want their cake and eat it too - and none for you... which tells me they're all Baby Boomers.... and that these windmills are messing up their view of the Cape.
Or worse, are funded by the rich folks who live on the Cape astroturfing the concern for birds. Worse more, it's a scam to rip off Massachusetts for 10 million in 'mitigation fees.'
And yes, Coast-line Environmentalists, you're our
