Tell your Congressman to say Yes to the Cape Wind Project

The push is on to get Cape Wind up and running. Doing so will help bring renewable energy to Massachusetts, and reduce our dependence on petroleum. I just left a message for my Congressman asking him to support the project; I urge you to do the same by clicking on the link below for more information:


Cape Wind is our energy future, both practically and symbolically. It will provide enough energy to power three quarters of the Cape and Islands. It is a rare energy project that is good for the environment and good for consumers. If we build Cape Wind, we open the door to many more wind and other renewable energy projects. If we reject it, we are choosing our energy past-more fossil and nuclear power, more pollution, more energy dependence.

When wind opponents in Congress nearly killed the project last summer, we had to depend on Congressman Charles Bass of New Hampshire and Senators Domenici and Bingaman of New Mexico to stand up for the project. We can't risk that again. Without real and visible political support in Massachusetts, the project is vulnerable to continued attacks. We need members of our delegation in Congress to come out in support of the project. Congressmen Barney Frank and John Olver are the only two who have.

Thanks so much for your help!
