How Atlantic Ocean Wind Projects Will Kill Endangered Whales

October 1, 2022

James Taylor was recently a guest on the "Mike Ferguson in the Morning" show in St. Louis to talk about how the wind power plans of Dominion Energy in Virginia will sign a death warrant for the endangered right whale.

The Heartland Institute has joined allies in hiring a law firm to fight the wind power project off the coast of Virginia that may end the existence of the North Atlantic right whale.

Heartland Institute President James Taylor joined the "Mike Ferguson in the Morning" show in St. Louis to talk about Heartland's involvement in an effort to protect the North Atlantic right whale — of which there are only about 300 left — as well as how other supposedly "green" energy projects have turned what we think of environmentalism on its head. Wind power companies can kill thousands of birds and bats, many of them endangered, with no penalty from the government. But if a random bird dies on the property of a conventional energy plant, the feds drop the hammer.
