The Dark Side of Offshore Wind Power: How It’s Destroying Both Pocketbooks and the Environment (Guest: David Stevenson)

Published February 14, 2023
In this episode of Environment & Climate News, we dive into the controversial topic of offshore wind power and its potential negative impact on the environment and economy. We explore the violation of the Endangered Species Act through the construction of wind turbines in the critical habitat of the North Atlantic Right Whale, which could threaten its survival, and the potential loss of the domestic seafood supply due to the disruption of the commercial fishing industry.

We also examine the high costs and minimal reduction of carbon dioxide emissions associated with this renewable energy source, raising the question of whether offshore wind power is a sustainable solution for our energy needs.
