Monmouth University Polling Institute recently queried residents of the Mid Atlantic states (including New York) regarding the desirability of offshore wind. 63% of New Yorkers favor placement of wind farms in sight of the coastline (pp. 19-20), though a greater percentage -77%- more favor non-visible placement. Only 37% favor drilling for oil and gas.
