The Cape Wind Energy Project is an excellent example of what can be done now to make the transition to renewable energy production without further significant environmental costs. It will stand as a model of progress by the U.S. in meeting its global obligations to reduce greenhouse gases and a model of leadership and compromise by the residents of Cape Cod to reduce air pollution.

Joe Kennedy supports Cape Wind Thursday, August 30, 2012

ATTLEBORO — Congressional candidate Joseph Kennedy III broke with his family elders today and endorsed the Cape Wind energy project many of his relatives oppose.
Kennedy said he has not taken a position on the project up until now because he wanted to study the details. He said he has found it to be a good way to increase the state’s supply of alternative energy and reduce reliance on foreign oil.
The Cape Wind project would double the amount of alternative energy produced in Massachusetts and create good-paying jobs, he said.
