The possibility of eventually going further and deeper will be enhanced by the experience that will be gained with the turbines in Nantucket Sound....It is prudent that the first projects be relatively close to shore, and in relatively shallow water before moving further out. Nantucket Sound is a good place to begin.

Two new important studies on climate change Monday, January 14, 2013
Reuters is reporting on two significant new reports on climate change -- in 'Impact of climate change hitting home, U.S. report finds', Reuters reports how climate change is already significantly impacting every region of the United States according to a draft 1,146 page report of the U.S. National Climate Assessment, commissioned by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Reuters' article 'Emissions limits could cut climate damage by two-thirds - study' reports on a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change that is the first comprehensive assessment of the benefits of cutting greenhouse gas emissions, finding up to two thirds of the damange this century from climate change can be prevented if major steps are taken now to reduce emissions.
