Statement on the Senate Energy Committee's Agreement on Cape Wind Language

Below is a statement by John Passacantando, Executive Director of Greenpeace USA

Media release - June 21, 2006

"Given the stark urgency of global warming and high energy prices, we are glad that the Massachusetts gubernatorial veto for the Cape Wind project has been dropped, because this is an extremely important clean energy project for Massachusetts and the nation.  Even though Senator Kennedy tilted at windmills in Nantucket Sound, his hot air lost out today to common sense and real solutions. It is unfortunate that political maneuvers have singled out the Cape Wind project for additional and redundant reviews. While this is a positive step forward, this is not a victory until we have Cape Wind producing clean energy for Massachusetts.  A big thanks are in order to Senators Bingaman and Domenici, who have proven that the next generation of environmental leadership will have to involve both sides of the aisle."
