I am delighted by the conversation this issue has triggered. This is complicated, and for some, emotional both pro and con. And we all know that when passion one way or the other is involved, people can interpret statements, facts, analysis etc. through the prism of their emotions.
That is why I agree, we must all be very careful here to understand the facts. I have many questions from how far off shore, and if they will or will not be visible. To the impact on the environment, to the benefits the windmills may provide.
Our world is changing, our environment is changing, and our climate is definitely changing. Witness the last three storm seasons, wild fires in the west, and the wild swing in weather patterns. So in some small way can this project be a tiny piece of the puzzle in the big picture of things? Or does it amount to “I recognize the challenge, but please, not in my back yard.”
I look forward to learning more. Perhaps a good start might be to invite someone from DNREC to attend a Tower Shores board meeting (via the conference call the 2nd Monday evening of each month). And let the community listen to the facts and ask questions.
