More hot air on Cape Cod but a deal may be in the offing

A way may be paved for the hotly-debated Cape Wind project off Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Cape Cod to prevail due to a compromise struck by Sens. Bingaman and Domenici with, of all people, Sen. Kennedy. Kennedy is quoted in the Thursday, June 22 Washington Post saying "It's a significant victory in our effort to deal with the legitimate safety concerns (to shipping and navigation) of the project." Might he be signaling a rear-guard strategy? If so, Gov. Romney apparently is not a part of it. Under the deal, we wouldn't be able to scuttle the project, although the Coast Guard -- which is not likely above influence -- would be able to. Meanwhile, the battle between Cape Wind and its opponents -- mainly the "Alliance to Proect Nantucket Sound" -- is heating up.
