Offshore Wind Power: The Promises and the Realities

Hosted by

The Obama Administration has promised a major investment in offshore wind power to reduce dependence on foreign oil and curb global warming. The project closest to getting started is Cape Wind, in shallow waters near Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, where the President's on vacation. But Horseshoe Shoals were called "sacred grounds" by the late Senator Edward Kennedy, and Cape Wind is the subject of bitter controversy. We hear about green power and global warming, natural beauty and the tourist economy, and what's at stake for America's energy future.
