Construction is scheduled for completion by the end of 2007.
The proposal, Isaksen said, made her think of battles to keep out a landfill and sewage treatment plant. And now here comes Jay M. Cashman, a prominent Boston developer, with his plans to build 120 wind turbines in the bay, each of which would rise 450 feet into the air, with some as close as 2 miles to shore
TALLAHASSEE -- Floridians support lifting a ban on oil drilling 100 miles or more from the state's Gulf Coast beaches by a 51 to 42 percent majority, and many say rising gasoline prices have influenced their approval, a poll released Thursday showed.
CAMPAIGNERS fighting proposals for a wind farm between Brent Knoll and Burnham have had a major success this week. Brent Knoll Parish Council decided to object to plans to build five wind turbines at Inner Farm near the village at a meeting on Monday.
Not so nuclear-related, Bush's energy plan also called for $44 million to be slated for wind turbine energy, $150 million for solar energy and $2 billion to promote clean coal.
THE Government has denied that it has performed a U-turn after saying parish councils are free to speak out about wind farms.
Lovelock also criticized some environmentalists for embracing renewable energy sources, such as wind or solar power, saying, "It's mostly made up of urban people, who know almost nothing about the countryside and still less about the ecosystem. Their solutions are basically urban-political solutions."
