A report titled, “Conflicts of Interest: Environmental Organizations Take Offshore Wind Industry Money,” has revealed that environmental groups such as National Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club, and Audubon Society accept millions of dollars in donations from the offshore wind industry.
The letter states, “When offshore wind companies donate to environmental groups, they often frame their donations as a way to mitigate the impacts of their projects by funding conservation research. But such research may be mere tokenism that serves to distract from the immediate risks of the proposed project.”
The existence of North Atlantic Right Whales is being threatened by destruction of their habitat by the offshore wind farm industry. Harm to whales and ocean life from sonar and technology associated with windfarms is well documented:
“These rolling walls of noise are no doubt too much for some marine wildlife. While little is known about any direct physiological effects of sonar waves on marine species, evidence shows that whales will swim hundreds of miles, rapidly change their depth (sometime leading to bleeding from the eyes and ears), and even beach themselves to get away from the sounds of sonar.”
