You’ve got to be kidding me.
Liberals won’t fight it because it would look like they weren’t “green”
Conservatives won’t fight it because it goes against them being in support of business.
So it looks like we will end up with huge visual pollution on the waterfront.
A 250 foot tall windmill right down in the inner harbor is going to look ridiculous, lol.
This from the same company that stopped carrying lobsters at their supermarkets because they called it inhumane to hold them in tight quarters (or something ridiculous along those lines)
Is a two million dollar windmill really going to pay for itself? Or is Gloucester going to be used in a green marketing campaign to show the rest of the country that Whole Foods Is a green company even though it doesn’t make financial sense. Judging by what they did with press releases during the ridiculous banning of the sale of lobsters because they don’t like them being kept in tight quarters, I fear it’s more about marketing and less about the real financial or green impacts of the ginormous (it’s a real word now) visual pollution that will be erected and loom over our harbor.
You gotta give them credit though, if they give the fishermen a payout we will surely end up with this thing stuck up our ass.
Why should we even have building codes with height restrictions? 250 feet in the air is what, seven times higher than the current building codes at that location? Fuck it, we might as well build high rises while we’re at it.
Kudos to the Whole Foods Marketing Team- they’re no dummies.
