A new documentary entitled “Thrown To The Wind” highlights a disturbing fact that rarely, if ever, gets mentioned by the “greenies” about their beloved wind turbines: they kill sea life.
It turns out that those huge, loud metal monstrosities that litter the coastlines are killing cetaceans, including whales and dolphins.
“The film documents surprisingly loud, high-decibel sonar emitted by wind industry vessels when measured with state-of-the-art hydrophones,” says producer Jonah Markowitz.
“And it shows that the wind industry’s increased boat traffic is correlated directly with specific whale deaths.”
Already because of the growing wind industry, the North Atlantic right whale is approaching extinction, having dropped in population from 400 to 340 in just a few short years.
“There have been more than 60 recorded whale deaths of all species on the East Coast since Dec. 1, 2022, a number that increased markedly since 2016 when the wind industry started to ramp up,” Markowitz says.

The “greenies” don’t care about animals or the environment: it’s all about MONEY
Plenty of evidence about all this has been presented to the government in the hopes of putting a halt to wind turbine expansion – but it has fallen on deaf or stubborn ears.
Despite continued warnings from leading conservation groups and top scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), wind turbine projects are moving forward as usual.
In addition to the high-decibel sonar threat, whales, dolphins, and other cetaceans are being harmed by wind turbine boat traffic “in areas where there hasn’t historically been traffic,” reports explain.
As for the sonar, whales get disoriented from the sounds they hear, which separates mothers from their calves and sends them directly into harm’s way, either into boat traffic or poorer feeding grounds.
The same people pushing “green” wind energy also freaked out loudly during the presidency of Donald Trump when they accused him of separating children from their parents at the southern border.
Even though wind turbines are doing the exact same thing to cetaceans by separating baby whales and dolphins from their mothers and subjecting them to early death, the “greenies” want more, more, and more wind turbines.
None of this wind energy expansion would even be possible were it not for the millions of dollars’ worth of kickbacks that the wind turbine industry has sent to at least three major environmental organizations in order to get their blessing.
Money talks, and environmental groups with less-than-stellar ethics and character are easily swayed to support things that harm the environment, just so long as they get paid handsomely for it.
Big Tech is also involved in the scheme, with Facebook having censored a post linking whale deaths to wind energy off the East Coast of the United States.
“It’s clear that the American people and our representatives cannot trust NOAA and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), the two government agencies that, for years, have repeatedly betrayed the public’s trust in service to powerful industrial interests,” wrote Michael Shellenberger in a piece for the New York Post.
Could there be anything less sustainable than large metal structures being placed in the waters of delicate and often endangered sea life? At what point does society start to acknowledge the fact that “green” energy is a huge scam that arguably causes more harm than good for the planet?
“No wonder sailing boats are under attack around Spain and the entrance to the Mediterranean,” one commenter wrote. “Whales hate the wind power loonies more than right-thinking humans do.”
