Wind Power off the MA Shore; Calls for a Boycott of AZ

Hosted by

In Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento, politicians are calling for a boycott of public business with Arizona, claiming its new immigration law will lead to racial profiling.

On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, after nine years of divisive debate, the Obama Administration has approved America’s first off-shore wind farm in the waters near Cape Cod. Supporters hail a new, green industry. Opponents fear destruction of a national treasure: Nantucket Sound.
