South Terminal blasts don't make much of a splash

It wasn't a large plume of smoke. More like a puff. It was white, with a dim flash of red at the beginning. Roughly 30 seconds after the smoke dissipated, a small fountain of water bubbled up to the surface. It was the first of what will be 50 blasts in the bedrock to make way for large boats carrying turbine components to the under-construction South Terminal.

Audubon's turbine plan disturbing

As the permitting process for a wind turbine at Mass Audubon's Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is about to begin, I still can't connect the dots with regard to common sense here. ...Seems so hypocritical to me since, according to its website, Wellfleet Audubon's woodlands attract a wide variety of wildlife, especially songbirds and shorebirds. But apparently a wind turbine isn't in conflict with nature? Really?
