Hamilton is not benned. His name still shows up on the Members List.

Well, if he doesn't vote on the next bill, he will be at risk of expelled from the legislature.  Do we need to have some sort of proceedings for that?

Rep. Doctor Cynic - I don't think we're voting on Cape Wind yet.  Rep. Mr. Moderate should have the floor to explain his bill.

I don't believe so. But the Constitution  is a bit vague there.

Moderate does have the floor to explain his bill, sorry about forgetting to post that.

Nay. Wind power is ineffective and not cost-worthy.

No, don't put words in my mouth. I support solar, hydro-electric and nuclear power.

It won't be enough. Wind power can have many difficulties, but it's still better than nothing.
Obviously we should do the same for solar and hydro-electric.

They're unsightly and inefficient. You would need a huge number of them just to power a single town, and it doesn't seem worth it, to be frank.

The same applies to solar power, for the moment. But in some years we'll find ways to make them more efficient.

I agree that wind power is not cost effective and only works when the wind blows.  But the Northeast government isn't building Cape Wind - a private company is.  If a private company wants to build a wind farm and thinks they can turn a profit, why shouldn't we support it?

Depends what this motion of support means.

Just to remind Representatives, we are only debating the Bill at the moment. We are not taking a vote.

Aww, shucks.  I thought I had posted this last night, but I must have never hit "post."  Anyway, once more:

So, this bill is about the "controversial" Cape Wind project, a wind turbine farm planned for the coast of Cape Cod.  It's a private project that boasts significant public support, but faces well-financed opposition from wealthy Cape Cod landowners who want to protect the view in their bay windows.  We're talking about a really bad case of NIMBY here.

Realistically and scientifically, the cape is about the only place in Massachusetts with the winds needed to sustain a farm of this scope.

Though it may not seem like a resolution like this would do much, but it's a reassurance to the business community that government will not interfere with what, as I said, is considered a controversial project.  And that really does go a long way.

I hereby pen up a vote on the following resolution. Vote Aye, Nay, or Abstain. Voting lasts twenty-four hours.

Resolution in Support of Cape Wind

Whereas the Northeast Region believes that clean energy provides both environmental and eventual economic benefit that outweighs aesthetic concerns, and,

Whereas the Northeast Region wishes to be a national leader in the move towards clean energy, and,

Whereas the Cape Wind Energy Project, an offshore wind farm off Nantucket Island in Massachusetts, has the support of 84% of Massachusetts adults )according to a 2007 public opinion survey),

Therefore be it resolved that the Northeastern Legislature affirms its support for the Cape Wind Energy Project.
