    The Cape Wind project was an idea to locate about 170 wind turbines offshore of Boston. The wind is strong and consistent at that location. A relatively short cable would be used to connect to a ready market nearby. After a decade of legal fights they received all the necessary permits in 2010 but the number of turbines permitted was arbitrarily cut down to 130 which hurt the economic viability. Then some more legal fights and finally they were ready to order the generators, towers and blades. The customer got tired of waiting and the price of oil went down. The investors finally withdrew. The president of Cape Wind now literally has grey hair after all this time. There are a few places in the USA where wind power can be profitable. This is one of them. The coast of Maine is another. 16 years is too long to fight this regulatory and legal nonsense. If a project like this is privately funded and potentially profitable it should not take more than a year for all the planning, legal and regulatory work to be done.

    Re. your discussion of art with Jim Valient: let’s get it straight, there are objective standards for “good art” (& have been ever since Aristotle), there are objective standards for Romantic art (which may or may not be good art), & the fact that something is “good” or Romantic doesn’t mean I have to like it. There is no such thing as Objectivist art or Aristotelian art or Catholic art because it is not the function of art to teach or proselytize (which is why I consider Leonard Peikoff’s inclusion of A.R.’s editing notes in the latest edition of ANTHEM an aesthetic crime)…. As to the Atlas Society’s “artist in residence” if they’re saying this is “Objectivist” art, that’s silly. If they’re saying “we like this artist & want to promote his art” that’s a good thing. To be quite honest with you I think most Objectivists must have been reading THE ROMANTIC MANIFESTO upside down, because they don’t have a clue.
