At least the MD governor is trying to get permits for off shore wind energy. Unlike those lace curtain wannabees up in Massachusetts who are distressed that they might actually have to see wind turbine blades several miles off shore. There are other states like VA, NJ, NC, SC and FL which might also like to be able to do off shore wind, and these are mostly Republican states.

What are you smoking? I read your home page which confirmed you're a whack job!
Yeah, off-shore wind ...that will work. NOT.
You say that like it’s a good thing. Offshore wind is a worthless as onshore wind. All cost, no benefit. But it makes Marty feel good.

Offshore wind is not the answer for Maryland. Wind makes sense in some places like the Plains down into Texas where the turbines can be stuck on useless land or placed into farmland with associated dirt roads. But installation and maintenance of off shore wind is complex and expensive. With wind farms on land a few dead turbines is affordable but not out in the ocean.
I will have to pay for this boondoggle twice. Once from my federal taxes and a second time when Virginia electricity consumers have to buy some of that expensive Maryland power.
