Chris Gabrieli on Energy & Oil


Supports Cape Wind plus other renewable energy projects

Q: Do you support the Cape Wind project?

A: Yes, I support the Cape Wind project, although I do have some questions about the leasing of land. Once these details are worked out and the Environmental Impact Statement comes back positive, I expect the project to move forward. Unfortunately we've allowed this one project to dominate the debate over renewable energy. Massachusetts needs a comprehensive policy including greater investment by the state in renewable energy.

Cape Wind deal is not the best for Cape & islands

UCC: What's your view on building a wind farm on Nantucket Sound?

Gabrieli: I favor the wind farm as long as we get a good deal. As long as they complete the full impact review that is ongoing. I will get the right deal for Massachusetts. I don't believe the deal today is the best deal for Massachusetts or for the Cape and islands.

Sign on to greenhouse gas initiative

UCC: Gov. Romney pulled out of signing a greenhouse gas initiative. Would you sign on to such an agreement?

Gabrieli: Global warming is a real phenomenon. I think it's time to step forward and do something about it and not wait around for Washington. I think it's a shame that the governor stepped back, on it. I think it's a long-term responsibility that we have. The Cape is a place where the eco-system is most likely to be damaged by rising ocean levels. So yes, I think we should sign on to it.
