New Study Provides Bad News for Wind Energy Advocates

A new peer reviewed study from German scientists found that offshore wind farms — the sort of supposedly “green” alternative to existing energy sources with which President Biden and Democrats want to fill America’s coastal waters — are not as safe for marine ecosystems as their proponents may argue.

The researchers looked at one area and ecosystem in particular — the North Sea — where the world’s largest offshore wind farm (OWF) opened earlier in 2022. Relying on modeling and simulations in order to see what the “systematic, large-scale, time-integrated response of the ocean to large OWF clusters” would be, the study’s authors found evidence that offshore wind power generation, supposedly great for the planet actually introduced factors that negatively impact sea life.
