Wind farm tradeoffs

This piece in the Boston Globe illustrates that even clean, renewable energy will force us to accept tradeoffs. You may recall the hue and cry over a proposal to put a wind farm in Nantucket Sound. This story is about the Army Corps of Engineers environmental impact statement expected to be released shortly. This is a worthwhile piece to read because many of us, especially those in windy areas across the country, are going to be faced with these very issues in the not to distant future.
