Wind Turbines Whale Mortality 2016 to 2023

23 Dead Whales Washed Up on the East Coast Since December
Whales use sound to communicate and navigate over distances of hundreds of miles. Whales produce very low-frequency sounds that travel much quicker and distant under the sea than those same frequencies on land. 
A human middle ear works as an impedance equalizer between the outside air's low impedance and the cochlear fluid's high impedance. Whales have no great difference. It's much easier to damage a Whale's hearing.
It's been confirmed the US Navy and National Marine Fisheries reported the Navy sonar drove Whales to the beach. The low-frequency sonar damaged the whale's ear. 
A  Whale with damaged ears leads to only one conclusion that a deaf whale is a dead Whale as it can no longer navigate or communicate. 
Prior to 2016, there was no unusually high rate of deaths of Whales.  
In 2016 the United States started building ocean wind turbines off the coast of Rhode Island which marked a dramatic increase in Whale deaths up until now. 
 In 2017, 78 whales died along the Atlantic coast of the US. 59 died per year in 2018, 2019, and 2020. 31 died in 2021, and 32 died in 2022. More than 10 humpback whales died in east coast waters in 2023.
 Scientists say about 40 percent of Whales got hit by ships or caught up in fishing gear. They well could have gotten hit by ships if their hearing and brains are affected by ocean mapping for wind turbines using Sonar.
In 2017 off the coast of the United Kingdom and Ireland at the start of wind turbine construction, around 1000 Whales died another coincidence? At the time it was suggested the wind turbine noise had affected the delicate echolocation mechanisms of the Whales. Experts then as they are now ridiculing any suggestion of hearing or brain damage from construction.
The only common denominator is Whale deaths started with wind turbine construction in 2016 and continue today in New York and New Jersey.  
Ocean wind is a political agenda for Green Energy in which federal and state governments have put all their eggs in one basket.  
Offshore wind contractors are set to spend $70 billion on the offshore wind along the East Coast. 
Massachusetts passed regulations called the Host Community Agreements. One example of HCA is the Town of Falmouth where the offshore wind turbine company can pay the town 20 million over 20 years to bypass all local zoning to place high-voltage cables through the town and place a massive electric substation in a residential vacation destination. Aka the town can sell all its health and safety regulations to the offshore wind company.
Money is taking precedence over the average Jill and Joe and all the marine animals.
The bottom line is everybody gets a bag of money except for your residential property rights and the Whales disappear.  
How could anyone with the above facts determine anything except that wind turbine construction is causing deaths? 
Follow the money.

According to the NOAA UME humpback webpage, 50% of the overall humpbacks “approximately” were necropsied, either partial or full and they don’t tell you the percentages. 

Of those 50%, 40% (40% of the half that were necropsied aka 20% overall) had signs of human interaction. That means of the overall UME count only 20% of those whales had signs of human interaction a.k.a. ship strike and or entanglement- but it also does not say whether it was an old human interaction as in a scar, or the reason why the animal died .
20% is the same as one out of five, what happened to the other four out of five?

3/6/23 (Day #853 after the November 3, 2020 presidential election)

Tucker Carlson on the November 2020 presidential election:

"The protesters were angry. They believed that the election they had just voted in had been unfairly conducted. They were right. In retrospect it is clear that the 2020 election was a grave betrayal of American democracy. Given the facts that have since emerged about that election, no honest person can deny it. If the beneficiaries of that election continue to lie about what is now obvious, the real crime, they will tell you again and again, is not what happened on Election Day 2020, the real crime is what happened two months later on January 6th, when Donald Trump led an insurrection against the duly elected American government. To prove that claim and to divert attention away from the details of the presidential election itself, Democrats in Congress empaneled what they called the House Select Committee on the January 6th Attack. The point of that committee was to prevent Donald Trump from running for president again."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.”

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
