Seeking "The Wisdom of the District" - Energy in America

 

Last week the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management announced a Proposed Sale Notice to lease areas in waters offshore Virginia and Massachusetts for commercial wind energy development. This is the first significant step toward harvesting our coastal wind energy and the combined projects could generate up to 4,000 megawatts of electrical power – enough to power up to 1.4 million homes.

Should the government:

( ) Continue to pursue offshore wind energy to diversify our energy resources and lower our dependence on fossil fuels

( ) Continue to pursue offshore wind energy while simultaneously pursuing offshore oil and gas to maximize the boost to jobs and the economy

( ) Proceed with caution due to the significant migratory bird populations that might be affected by wind farms

( ) Find an area other than Virginia due to the demands of shipping lanes, Naval operations, and space flight operations from the Eastern Shore

( ) I have another answer
