Offshore Wind Power: The Promises and the Realities

Hosted by

Offshore wind is an alternative energy source touted by the Obama Administration. But plans may be delayed by controversy over a project planned for waters off Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, where the President's on vacation. We hear about green power and global warming, natural beauty and the tourist economy, and what's at stake for America's energy future.  Also, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wants opposition leaders prosecuted, and the saga of a child victim of kidnap and rape, held prisoner with her two children for 18 years.  Why didn't authorities catch on?
