A fast-growing group known as Defend Brigantine Beach (DBB) joined forces with Ventnor residents on Sat. morning, Jan 21.
Close to 100 braved cold temps on Ventnor Pier. Calling attention to the spike in beached whales. Is the wind turbine project safe for marine life?
Industrialization of our ocean.
Members of Defend Brigantine Beach (DBB) invited Mayor Holtzman and the Ventnor Commissioners to join the pop-up rally.
Discussed: Commissioner Tim Kriebel wanted to know: is there a city permit for this gathering on the pier?
The was some debate on whether Commissioner Kriebel was fully aware of issues regarding wind turbines and dead whales just off his Ventnor shore line.
Wind turbine research using sonar (sound) to measure sea floor. Oil drillers use seismic (explosives) testing methods.
Marine Mammals are hyper sensitive to sound. That’s how they communicate in the dark.
Fishing experts say some dead whales never make it to beach, feasted on by hungry predators.
Who took #WindMoney?
Elected officials silent.
#windmoney from consortium of wind companies.
Awkward silence from those you thought would step up.
Stockton University, MMSC, Sierra Club, Green Teams, Sustainable Teams, NOAA, PETA, CRDA, NJDEP, etc.
Even Ventnor, Margate and Longport keeping quiet about dead whales and experimental wind farms. Too much grant money at stake.
