Wind farms are destroying wildlife while environmental organisations accept millions of dollars from wind energy companies

This film came after scientists and government officials, under pressure from the White House, denied that the construction of large industrial wind turbines caused the increase in whale, dolphin, and other cetacean deaths. The movie showed that the surprisingly loud, high-decibel sonar emitted by wind industry vessels when measured with state-of-the-art hydrophones is correlated directly with specific whale deaths.

According to reports, the population of North Atlantic right whales has dropped to 340 from over 400 over the last few years. And, there have been more than 60 recorded whale deaths of all species on the East Coast since Dec 1, 2022, a number that increased markedly since 2016 when the wind industry started to ramp up.

The New York Post reported that the wind projects are going forward despite urgent warnings from leading conservation groups and a top scientist at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Dr. Sean Hayes, who said last year that industrial wind projects “could have population-level effects on an already endangered and stressed species.” He also said that oceanographic impacts from installed and operating turbines cannot be mitigated for the 30-year lifespan of the project unless they are decommissioned. But his warnings were ignored.

Wind energy companies donate $4.7 million to three dozen environmental organizations

Despite all the news covering the killing of animals due to wind turbines, wind energy companies continue to mount their facilities in the United States because of their massive donations.

 

The New York Post‘s Michael Shellenberger revealed that the wind companies as well as their foundations have donated nearly $4.7 million to at least three dozen major environmental organizations. He further revealed how Big Tech companies such as Facebook censored his post linking whale deaths to wind energy off the East Coast.

“The censorship came in the form of adding a link to a ‘FactCheck.org‘ article from March 31, 2023, which relied entirely on U.S. government sources “Thrown to the Wind” debunks,” Shellenberger wrote. “It is clear that the American people and our representatives cannot trust NOAA and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), the two government agencies that, for years, have repeatedly betrayed the public’s trust in service to powerful industrial interests,” the award-winning author further said in the Post.

Meanwhile, he remains hopeful that things will soon change as the people had strong reactions to “Thrown To The Wind,” including members of Congress.

You can almost say this destruction of wildlife is going on here in NZ. Where are the howls of outrage from the greens and other environmentalists?

Someone should tell nude nut that animal lives matter.

    • Yes Obama’s Democrats green environmental rules.

      “Stop all killing life electricity.”
      “Stop all fossil fuels”. ….. yeah right ….

      ….. Under the new rule, wind companies and other power providers will not face a penalty if they kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles, nearly four times the current limit.
      Deaths of the more rare golden eagles would be allowed without penalty so long as companies minimize losses by taking steps such as retrofitting power poles to reduce the risk of electrocution. …..

      So is that just a few power poles to where it hooks into the grid?

      Would that also seem to be passing the buck to another company, which owns the grid, or they will just weigh up the damage done to the power system, to wear it for the cost of maintenance?

  1. Hmmm. From the article:

    …….”The movie showed that the surprisingly loud, high-decibel sonar emitted by wind industry vessels when measured with state-of-the-art hydrophones is correlated directly with specific whale deaths.”…….

    AND

    …….”Māui dolphins are one of the rarest and smallest dolphins in the world. They are only found on the west coast of the North Island in New Zealand. “………….”Population estimate: Between 48 and 64 dolphins “………Threats: Fishing, toxoplasmosis and other diseases, oil and gas exploration, boat strike, mining, tourism, noise.”……….

    BUT

    South Taranaki Offshore Wind is a 900MW offshore wind project to be located off the south coast of Taranaki region of New Zealand.

    The cognitive dissonance must be doing in the heads of the Green lefties. That’s probably why the two faced idiots are struck dumb on the subject.
