The Cape Bag ‘o Wind Enviro Show
Greetings Earthlings. We hope to have Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on the phone to talk about the Cape Wind project that mainstream enviros are attempting to ram down our collective throat. We’ll go right to the interview at the top of the show, after which we’ll submerge ourselves into the troubled waters surrounding this popular privatization scheme. Later, we’ll open the phone lines and get your opinion and have a bit of ..err...back-n-forth? Speaking of uncertain phone calls, we may get another from David Kroodsma, celebrating the finish in the first leg of the Ride for Climate.
Then, of course, it's time for the...Revenge of the Critters! Great White tries kayak for lunch! You can tell there's a nautical theme here, right?
Next, Robert Lucas' "Green Energy Blue" takes us to our Cape Wind free-for-all! We'll take a whack at the Massachusetts Ocean Act (S.2281) and its’ assault on the long-standing Massachusetts Ocean Sanctuary Act. Also, Greenpeace spins with the worst of them! AND, deeper water windmills? Sounds like their getting’ in over their heads to us! D.O. takes a piece out of Mass Audubon’s ambiguous position on Cape Wind. Then it’s time to open the phone lines and talk about industrial seascapes! WARNING: Everyone on this show thinks Cape Wind SUCKS!
In The Enviro Show Echo Chamber we have this piece from Grist (lifted from Reuters) on the U.S. Navy’s War on Terrorist Whales (told you there was a nautical theme). By this time in the show David may call from the other coast and scold us for our stand against Cape Wind. We'll see.
Finally, we'll checkout the ol' Bus Stop Billboard:
