The SolWest 2007 keynote speaker will be Benjamin Gisin, publisher of Touch the Soil magazine with a foreword by Susan Gisin, associate editor. Gisin will speak on the sustainability of energy and food and how these concepts can find increased expression “inside of” and “outside of” financial capitalism. Listeners will discover how economic clout at the grass-roots level may be more a matter of human energy and creativity than it is about money. Benjamin Gisin was senior agricultural approval officer for one of the nationâ€™s top ten agricultural banks. Since 1996, Gisin has consulted farmers and ranchers in their debt and credit challenges, negotiating some of the largest debt settlements between farmers and lenders. Gisin is author of Farmerâ€™s and Rancherâ€™s Guide to Credit.

Bob Whitcomb Speaks About His New Book Cape Wind, Money, Celebrity, Class, Politics, And The Battle For Our Energy Future
Please join Bob Whitcomb, co-author of “Cape Wind, Money, Celebrity, Class, Politics, and the Battle for Our Energy Future on Nantucket Sound” on Saturday, May 19th at 3:00pm at The Inkwell Bookstore at 199 Main Street, Falmouth, MA.
Cape Wind – The Book
Money, Celebrity, Class, Politics, and the Battle for Our Energy Future on Nantucket Sound
â€œHow rare for Sun Myung Moon’s scribblers, to say nothing of Rupert Murdoch’s salarymen at Fox News, to find themselves allied with the merry pranksters from Greenpeace, who have injected some badly needed humor into the Cape Wind imbroglioâ€¦.Cape Wind is breezy and informative fun.â€
– The Weekly Standard
â€œâ€¦colorful storytelling about the tribulations of siting a renewable energy project off of Marthaâ€™s Vineyard, Nantucket, and the Cape, a â€˜devilâ€™s triangle of entrenched, often inherited, wealthâ€â€¦â€
– Alex Beam, The Boston Globe
â€œCape Wind is a fun read, and a fun way to learn about renewable energy. If all the stories on this usually dry topic featured tales of meat hook accidents and characters with comic names, more Americans might pay attention. Cape Windâ€™s opening scene, of author David McCullough screaming at a Marthaâ€™s Vineyard town meeting that Nantucket Sound is hallowed ground, is worth the price of admission.â€
– Laura Vanderkam, The American
– Boston Magazine
â€œAn epic battle that pits privilege against the common good in a stunning exposure of NIMBY (not in my backyard) hypocrisyâ€¦This true-life tale of a blinding love of place, outrageously irresponsible propaganda, shameful congressional maneuvering, and egregious social injustice is half farce, half political thriller, and altogether compelling.â€
– Booklist (starred review)
â€œWith solid research, years of reporting and a number of colorful anecdotes, the authors present a convincing argument that wealthy property owners, politicians and some members of the local press have done a disservice to their countryâ€¦entertaining and reads at times like a novel, with suspense built in between the chapters.â€
– Marthaâ€™s Vineyard Gazette
â€œ,,,a book that will give some indigestion and others lipsmacking delightâ€¦â€
– Barnstable Patriot
“For citizens wondering what has become of America’s once-upon-a-time democratic republic, I know of no better place to begin the search than with a close reading of Cape Wind by Wendy Williams and Robert Whitcomb. The book joins first-rate investigative reporting with trenchant social commentary; the result is as entertaining as it is instructive. Voters intending to take part in next year’s election shouldn’t leave home without it.”
“…a great new book…”
– Sean Hannity
â€œ[A] well-reported assessment of democracy manipulated by powerful federal, state and local insiders, and other not-in-my-backyard shenanigans surrounding plans for a wind farm five miles off Cape Cod… [A] rambunctious, unsparing dissection of ruling-class abuse.”
– Publisherâ€™s Weekly
â€œ “Cape Wind,’ a five-and-a-half-year tale of power and money run amok amid a cast of characters worthy of a soap opera, is a page-turner….”
– Cape Cod Chronicle
