I first came to Tower Shore in 1970, when Bay Road was half empty and Matt’s Fish Camp was a local diner owned by Mrs Swadley. To say that today’s TS experience, including views from the beach, has changed drastically is an understatement.
As an academic, I was instrumental in introducing an Honors Tract for college students entitled “Energy and the Environment,” in the late 1980’s. The goal of the Tract was to bring to the students attention the challenge their and future generations will face in meeting an ever increasing energy demand while maintaining the health of the planet. The Tract was taught jointly by faculty of Engineering, Economics, Politics, and Theology; it continues to this day.
I have little confidence that my recently born first great-grandchild will have the opportunity to experience Tower Shore. But, if it turns out he might and the price I have to pay is a wind farm 17 miles offshore, I happily accept.
