No-Fishing Zones, Oil Spills and Wind Turbines

Windturbine The growing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has prompted federal authorities to expand a pollution-related no-fishing zone to 45,728 square miles, or 19 percent of the gulf. Meanwhile, climate activist Mike Tidwell makes the argument in The Washington Post that Virginia would do well to avoid this kind of nightmare -- by approving wind turbines off its beaches, not oil drilling platforms. "Virginia's coastline, it turns out, is a mini-Persian Gulf of wind power, ready to provide all the economic benefits of an 'oil rush' without any of the pollution risks," Tidwell writes.
