Turbines Kill the Sea
Stop the Wind Farms
Ørsted is preparing for the largest Ocean Wind turbine project in the US, located in New Jersey, by nonstop sonar bombardment of the seafloor, which is the suspect of the recent whale deaths… But it won’t end there.
The construction will continue by punching holes 60 ft wide by 100-150 ft deep, then building caissons (a watertight chamber used in construction work under water or as a foundation) to pour steel and concrete. Finally, they will erect 1000 ft wind turbines, with 180 ft blades, which spin at 180 mph. The blades will slice up anything that happens to fly by, with the down draft from the blades impacting the sea and waves below.
The construction will also include dredging a trough 6 ft deep, 10-15 miles from the turbines to the shore so that electrified cable can be laid, then reburied in the trough. Once the electricity gets to the shore, there isn’t an existing energy grid and stations that can handle the incoming power, therefore, Ørsted will have to erect multiple off shore "islands" to be built to house new power substations.
The project, called Ocean Wind 1, would have up to 98 wind turbines and have infrastructure in Lacey, Waretown and Berkeley townships within Ocean County and Upper Township and Ocean City in Cape May County. Ørsted is working on gathering approvals for a second ocean lease area called Ocean Wind 2. In addition, Atlantic Shores — a collaboration between Shell New Energies and EDF Renewables is also working on developing a lease area.
Each turbine will contain 1600 gallons of transformer oil, 150 gallons of lubrication oil, diesel, fuel and SF6. Leaks would most certainly end up on our beaches. Thousands of pounds of metal, plastics and fiberglass are used to make each turbine. This wind project WILL USE fossil fuels over its limited 20 to 30 year lifespan (if we are lucky) to develop, build, transport and install repair, maintain, then finally decommission, only to end up in the land fill.
The Wind farms will be less than 10 miles off the coast from LBI to Cape May. So you will be able to see it with the naked eye.
Ørsted, formally known as (DONG) energy, had 2000 failed offshore wind blades in 2018 because the leading edge of the blades wore down after just a few years at sea. The repair was covered under their 5 year warrantee, but Orsted estimated 3 years to repair. In 11 of their projects the deep water wind cables failed. Not a great thought when you know that our children swim in that ocean near those incoming cables.
Meanwhile the Bayonne Turbine hasn’t spun since 2020. We can’t even maintain the turbines we already have, now we are going to rely on a company with a long line of failed projects?
For the amount of money being spent on this, it would be better to simply provide grants and incentives as well as zoning permission to every building owner in the area to put up micro-wind and solar capture systems so that the materials could be included/attached to existing structures and land. It could be controlled by each individual land owner. They would maintain it. No marine life or birds would die. There is little to no landfill in that method of doing it.
The solar panels would last probably 20 years and a micro wind turbine that reaches up around 20ft - 30 ft in the air is quiet, does not kill birds, does not rotate (spin) that fast, and you have little loss due to transmission voltage drops over distance.
But hey, this wind project in NJ was never about common sense or logic and reason. It surely is not about the planet or being ecologically or socially responsible. It is all about Agenda 2030. Remove access to viable, reliable, affordable energy so that everyone other than the technocrats and billionaires are priced out of having energy. The slaves can then be told what to do and when. Their monthly CBDC will be provided only if they do exactly what the technocrats want. Otherwise, no food for you. No heat for you. No water. As soon as they figure out how to create domes for themselves to live in, they will probably pollute the air to an even bigger degree and then charge the slaves to live inside the dome.
Demons run this country.
