Plan For Wind Turbines On Normandy Coast Spins Controversy

Thursday, on the 69th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, many have gathered on the coast of Normandy to remember and honor the Allied soldiers who fought their way through Nazi defenses and went on to liberate Europe. There is controversy about a French plan to build 75 wind turbines offshore here. Critics see it as desecration of hollowed ground. Promoters say the wind mills will be at least 6 miles from the coast. They will still be visible but will help France meet its renewable energy goals and create thousands of jobs.
