The Truth About Offshore Wind: Busting Oil Money Myths and Misinformation

The various organizations, news outlets, and elected representatives that have been promoting misinformation about offshore wind have two things in common: 1) conservative politics and 2) ties to the oil industry. Seemingly locally run nonprofits have been leading public anti-offshore wind campaigns, purportedly out of concern about the dangers offshore wind farms present to whales and local economies. Yet many of these same organizations have proven ties to major conservative lobbyist groups funded by “Big Oil.” Meanwhile, both local and congressional conservative politicians have jumped on these misinformation campaigns, especially in the Northeast, where the first offshore wind farms are set to be constructed this year. This is despite several state and national polls showing that Americans overwhelmingly support the construction of offshore wind farms. >click to read< 08:04

    Many people have been wondering where the enviros are when it comes to whale deaths along the east coast. This article explains why. They are the champions of ocean industrialization.

      When I saw this and read it, it revealed to myself the answers many of our anti-offshore wind farm friends from the Mid Atlantic were asking about with the dead whale carnage sanctioned by our government, as they repeatedly asked, where are the environmentalist? They are being paid to pump the “ole propaganda.
