The report says that “Environmental organizations” and private citizens have teamed up to file a lawsuit in an effort to block the construction of the Cape Cod Wind Farm.

It continues, “A coalition of six environmental groups and three private citizens last week filed suit in federal court, claiming that federal agencies involved with the wind farm permitting process violated the Endangered Species Act and other environmental laws by approving the project.”

“We will not stand by while our treasured public ocean waters and lands are marred forever by private industry,” said Audra Parker, president and CEO of the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound, one of the plaintiffs in the suit.

The other plaintiffs are: the national Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER), the Connecticut-based Cetacean Society International, the Cape Cod-based Three Bays Preservation, the Lower Laguna Madre Foundation of Texas, Californians for Renewable Energy, and citizens Martha Powers of Yarmouth, Barbara Durkin of Northborough, and Cindy Lowry of Maine.
