Congressman Jeff Van Drew – New Jersey – Republican
Pro-wind activists and the Biden admin are hiding the REAL issues of offshore wind development from the public, and many in our media are refusing to properly examine these concerns.
So, I will highlight them here:
Offshore wind companies, many based in foreign countries, have bought up more than 2 million acres of ocean in the Atlantic, and are already eyeing the Gulf of Mexico, Pacific Ocean, and our Great Lakes for future lease sites.
These turbines are MASSIVE. Rising nearly 1,000 feet above the ocean surface, thousands of these turbines will be lining our horizons for decades to come.
Existing BOEM EIS’s claim this dredging will have the same environmental impact as doing nothing at all.
Does that make sense to anyone?
Wind co’s and this admin have ignored nearly every attempt at input from these stakeholders.
Despite warnings from THEIR OWN scientists, BOEM and NOAA have ignored the obvious long term impact these projects will have on marine life.
THE FIX IS IN FROM THE START.
THIS WILL COST LIVES.
We must fix this process NOW.
There is too much at stake & I will not allow these companies, or this administration, hide behind “stopping climate change” as an excuse to destroy our oceans.
