    Book details


When Jim Gordon set out to build a wind farm off the coast of Cape Cod, he knew some people might object. But there was a lot of merit in creating a privately-funded, clean energy source for energy-starved New England, and he felt sure most people would recognize it eventually. Instead, all Hell broke loose. Gordon had unwittingly challenged the privilege, power, and assumptions of some of Americas richest and most politically connected people, and they would fight him tooth and nail, no matter what it cost, and even when it made no sense. Cape Wind is a rollicking tale of democracy in action and plutocracy in the raw as played out among colorful and glamorous characters in one of our countrys most historic and renowned piece of coastline. It is also a cautionary tale about the challenges of evolving beyond reliance on fossil fuels and foreign oil, and an all too real lesson about why America lags behind the rest of the developed world in adopting clean energy.
