Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? But with the best intentions of getting rid of fossil fuels which pollute the environment, a few whales are washing up on shore is okay, right? The ultrasonic antifouling devices, UA, that these scientists are using to locate the right location for wind turbines off the eastern shoreline use the same frequency band that marine mammals use to communicate, find prey, and navigate their environment; and are, therefore, probably killing them. Sort of like a bomb blasting in our ears.
So, whales are washing up along the shoreline in New Jersey, and we used to kill whales for oil back in the whaling days of Moby Dick fame. Now we are killing them, albeit unbeknownst to us, for wind turbines. The result is the same: dead whales. One, to get oil; and the other, to avoid oil. Sounds like we’ve gone full circle, not to mention all the birds these wind turbines kill.
Nothing we do in the name of climate change, green new deal, or saving the environment seems to be working. Maybe it’s time to hang up our “good intention” signs and leave well enough alone. Even Swedish activist, Greta Thunberg, is in trouble for protesting against coal in Germany and got arrested.
“Greta Thunberg has today been protesting against the expansion of a coal mine in Germany. But the very reason Germany is forced to expand the coal mine in the first place is because they listened to Greta and built useless wind turbines instead of nuclear power.” NWO Report. Again, good intentions causing problems. Everything we do makes the environment worse off, like importing chips for the EV cars which require mining for minerals that pollute the air, soil, and water. Way to go, Biden.
And where’s PETA when we really need them? Of course, they are a left-run organization, so they will turn a blind eye to this cruelty to whales and rather favor Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth. And they once cared about polar bears.
One thought on “Environmental Exploration is Killing Whales.”
Environmentalists have been responsible for a lot of mistakes because they don’t look at the whole picture and don’t always know what they are talking about. Yet, I don’t see scientists or rational people speaking up, either. The whole conversation is out of balance.
