But hey…. WIND POWER!!! Right Progressives?! Pay no attention to the whales dying or the degrading solar panels that will affect ground water! They want to destroy the environment in order to “fix” the climate. So woke they’re sound asleep. https://t.co/7aY9ctFK6d via @nypmetro— Steve McLaughlin (@SteveMcNY) February 14, 2023
The $100 Billion Offshore Wind Industry Has a Whale Problem— Tracy (𝒞𝒽𝒾 ) (@chigrl) February 19, 2023
Dead whales keep washing up on the US Atlantic coast. A coalition of wind opponents, environmentalists and conservatives are blaming offshore wind. https://t.co/LZsve80kIS pic.twitter.com/wMVoalG19N

From 1985 -1999, before wind boom, sea bird population grew 35%
From 2000-2018, during wind boom, sea bird population declined 65%
“Our census reveals that more than half the nation’s seabird species have dramatically declined.” https://t.co/9A3LWhOMCl
The wind industry has been slaughtering millions of birds, bats and insects for years; and offshore it’s been killing off whales and dolphins, as well.
All power generation systems takes a toll on the environment, but it’s only the wind industry that claims moral superiority over all others. That tenuous claim – which rests on the ‘we’re saving the planet’ mantra chanted by the wind cult around the Globe – is becoming even harder to sustain with a growing avian and insect carcass count to its credit.
Then there’s the mounting toll offshore.
Not for the first time, and not for the last time, wind turbine noise and vibration has clocked up Cetacean fatalities, messing with whale’s sonar guidance and communication systems: Wind Turbine Noise Terrorising Whales
A couple of years back, we reported on the Cetacean victims of the UK’s offshore wind industry: How ‘Green’ is Wind Power: Offshore Wind Farms Killing Whales
If wind power is so cheap, why does it need more subsidies?#Renewables #CostOfNetZero pic.twitter.com/K5Oz0FfUN3— DonKeiller (@KeillerDon) February 20, 2023
