Wind power could potentially provide a fifth of the power needs for the East Coast. Considering that the from Boston to Miami is one big Atlantic Megatropolis, that’s a lot of power. A fun little tidbit:

The Obama administration is already dedicating billions of dollars to double the amount of electricity produced by wind and other renewables energy sources by January 2012.

The Interior Department will decide this spring whether to approve the Cape Wind project off Cape Cod, Massachusetts. That project, long delayed because of local opposition, would provide electricity to about 400,000 homes.

“Local opposition” includes the late Ted Kennedy. But without him complaining about wind mills uglifying his sailing waters . . . progress?
