Ocean City will be affected by climate change over the next few decades. We are at risk of extreme storms and sea level rise.
This makes it very surprising that our local officials would work so hard against the wind farm.
The wind farms are not all we need to do but they would certainly be a step in the right direction.
The furor that our elected office holders have whipped up amongst the residents is really quite irresponsible and the tax money spent on mailings is wasteful.
Ocean City is averse to change and any changes cause much uproar amongst residents.
First over the smoking ban and then over the casino. Both happened and tourism has not only continued but is flourishing.
If we really want to protect this wonderful community, we must take proactive steps to help with climate change. A good place to start would be to embrace the wind farms.
