Reilly names attorney to defend Cape Wind ruling

As the state's top attorney, Reilly would normally lead the board's defense against an appeal filed by the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound when the Supreme Judicial Court in Suffolk County begins its review of the appeal in the next few months, with hearings expected later in the year. Instead, Reilly, who opposes the Cape Wind plan, has recused himself and appointed a special assistant attorney general from outside his office to represent the state board against charges that its approval process contained "procedural and substantive" flaws.

Wind Advisory

As a boat angler who haunts Nantucket Sound, I'm especially concerned about its fish resources. Yet whenever I have sought solace from Cape Wind and the Corps in the form of cogent answers to my questions, I've gotten only what they hope to harness--wind.

Turning to the wind

With the help of state policy, research and funding from clean-energy supporters, Hull, Princeton and Boston fought the challenges and have erected wind turbines. The concept has supporters in Newbury. Newburyport is watching, with the new mayor saying a committee to look into the option may be in order.

Attack polluters, not environmental leaders

Last month, they [Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus] continued that tradition with a highly personal and dishonest attack on me for opposing Cape Wind -- a massive offshore wind farm that -- as a result of careless siting -- will ruin the livelihoods of hundreds of Cape Cod's treasured commercial fishing families by evicting them from their primary fishing grounds. That boondoggle, which requires a quarter billion dollars in government subsidies and effectively privatizes 24 square miles of public trust lands used annually by 3 million boaters and tourists, will cause a host of other injuries, including serious ecological damage and a billion dollars in economic loss to surrounding communities and will pose a dangerous navigational hazard to air and marine traffic.

HARWICH — There could be a 50-meter anemometer tower measuring wind speed on the grounds of Harwich High School as early as this spring. But Barry Worth, chairman of the town’s utilities and energy conservation commission, told selectmen they will need to sign off on a property loan agreement for the tower beforehand.
