Computer problems are minimizing my post this week, sadly, but….Can I just take a moment to acknowledge that the city council of Ocean City, Maryland, recently voted to object to any wind turbines being built offshore where they can be seen from the beach. They worry that the “eyesore” could hurt the tourism economy. The city populace, in contrast, supports the wind farm, by and large. The whole thing is very weird. It’s all over the news. And, meanwhile, how much of a threat is the possibility of oil and gas exploration offshore, which we mostly don’t hear about?
Which is more serious?
