Podcast available on Wind Power And Local Accusations of “NIMBYism” from the Kojo Nnamdi Show on WAMU 88.5 (Washington, D.C.)

Wind Power And Local Accusations of “NIMBYism”

A proposal in Maryland for an offshore wind farm is facing resistance from power companies, but may meet even more opposition from the local community.

A plan to develop a wind farm ten miles off the coast of Ocean City, Maryland, is facing resistance from power companies and some legislators. The proposed 400-foot high turbines could also be an issue for local residents and businesses in this tourist-heavy beach town. We’ll discuss the proposal, and we’ll also talk to a filmmaker who chronicled a rural community’s sharp divide over wind farms in upstate New York.
