Obama urged to support US offshore wind

A group of 122 environmentalists, conservationists, and clean energy advocates have urged President Barack Obama to support the swift development of offshore wind along the Atlantic Seaboard while still ensuring strong environmental safeguards.

In a letter written to President Obama, the group wrote: "For the sake of our environment and the hope of building a truly clean energy economy in America, we must see numerous wind farms spinning off our shores within the next few years – and we need your help to make that vision a reality."

The group has specifically has asked for clear goals to be set; coordination between federal and state officials to speed offshore wind development; rigourous environmental standards and planning strategies for offshore wind; and continued federal financial support.
