“NOAA Chief had Warned of Whale Deaths,” sent to the Monterey Herald and Los Angeles Times, Feb. 28, 2023, not published
It was clear in February 2023 that the unprecedented whale deaths in New England were caused by ocean wind energy projects. The White House said it had no idea wind farms could kill whales. On Feb 28, 2023, an NOAA memo surfaced produced by Sean Hayes, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s chief of protected species. The warning was clear that ocean wind farms pose a risk to whales and other marine species. Thus, not only did the White House place the global warming myth ahead of whale protection, it lied to the American public for eleven months that Biden was unaware of the clearly warned risks. We deserve a President that attends to actual environmental protection instead of chasing windmills. Please, Joe, keep your wind farms out of Monterey Bay.
