Why is NIMBYism keeping offshore wind projects out of the United States?



  1. 0 Votes

    NIMBYism is an acronym for Not In My Back Yard. The act of nimbyism has delayed or kept wind projects away mainly because of the windmills appearence. Many people find them large and in charge, noisy, and even somewhat detrimental to local ecosystems sometimes killing birds. They also tend to lower property values making communities very partial to the benefits of the potential wind farms.
