What does Brandon  think about the Windmills?

I am saddened that conspiracies pertaining to the off-shore wind turbine project is gaining headlines over detrimental pressing issues like the Housing Crisis. 

 

Any investment that will provide economic stimulus and jobs to my district, I fully support.  I am a man that acknowledges research conducted by passionate experts in their field.  We must not deny science or spread misinformation.

 

This project creates thousands of jobs in NJ's Second Congressional District.  It also brings us closer to our goal for a more sustainable future away from fossil fuels.

Save Costal Wildlife comprised much recent research about marine animal death into this scientific review article.

"Stop Lying About Whale Deaths! Ship strikes, fishing gear, plastic pollution and global warming are killing whales!"

Summary

Marine animals have been spotted closer to shore off the coast of NJ and NY due to climate change and cleaner waterways.

Ship traffic has also increased by 34% and kills over 20,000 whales every year globally.

Plastic pollution and fishing gear are the leading cause of marine mammal deaths with over 300,000 deaths a year.

Current offshore windmills off the coast of RI and Virginia Beach show positive impacts on ecosystems, by creating artificial reefs for fish, algae, sea turtles, and more.

and Atmospheric Administration)

"We work with our partners to analyze and understand the causes of death when we are able, following the science and data. At this point, there is no scientific evidence that noise resulting from offshore wind site characterization surveys could potentially cause mortality of whales. There are no known links between recent large whale mortalities and ongoing offshore wind surveys."
