Van Drew voted in 2017 to allow offshore wind as a state senator, he was the co-chair of the U.S. House...

    Why the public does not trust the government or NGOs and other supposed environmental groups? Perhaps because they have been bought and paid for.
    I ask - how can these groups be unbiased when they are given $Millions in support from companies such as Orsted? Answer - they are all compromised. Have to hand it to Orsted - their PR machine sure knows how to connect $$$ with agencies that will grease the skids for them....then of course - NJ politicians under Murphy take away home rule - thereby taking away the voice of citizens. This is still the United States - right?

Please either attend or join the live stream to learn about the plan to industrialize our ocean with over 1000..., 1050 foot tall (taller than NYC skyscrapers) wind turbines off of our NJ coast will devastate our economy, fishing industry, and of course - endangering wildlife such as the 20+ whales and dolphins dying in the past 3 months from the echo / sonar work............link below

    I am excited to be a guest speaker on New Jersey League of Conservation Voters next statewide webinar on warehouse sprawl and development on the municipal level.

    Out of control warehouse sprawl becomes more and more of a threat to our open spaces, farmlands, and possess community safety concerns for our most at-risk communities.

    Engagement amongst municipal governing boards, local planning and zoning, and residents can have significant impact in developing better ways to curve the issue, while also pursuing new regulations to help with the process.

    Caring about the health of our oceans is the same as caring for our planet. Stop the insanity of off shore wind...they are not efficient (your electricity rates will increase significantly); installation causes massive marine life death (near extinction event for some whales); and our tourism and fishing industries will be destroyed. Attend this event to learn more......dare to learn the truth.

    The New Jersey League of Conservation Voters works every single day to protect our environment and our open spaces.

    It was great to sit down with Ed Potosnak and his team to discuss how we can work together to ensure that future generations can continue to benefit from access to our natural parks and spaces.
    Why New Jersey League of Conservation Voters' Ed Potosnak is determined to lead ‘information’ campaign about whale strandings
    Ed Potosnak, the executive director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, is very clear on the cause of the recent strandings of more than a dozen whales on the coast of New Jersey and New York since December.

    “It’s the boats,” he said.

    Potosnak, a former high school science teacher who spent time on Capitol Hill before joining LCV nearly a dozen years ago, said following the science — and the scientists — is the only way to find the answer.

    The development of the offshore wind industry, still in its earliest stages, is not the cause, Potosnak said — and he said it strongly. Each time there is a stranding, his organization releases a statement saying it is not being caused by the offshore wind industry.

    He calls it an “information” campaign to fight a “misinformation” campaign.

    “We look to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center (in Brigantine), which came out with a very strong statement saying there’s no connection or evidence of connection between the strandings and offshore wind activities,” he said. “That was buttressed as well by reports from independent agencies like BOEM (the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management) and NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).”

    The belief that boats have been the cause of the strandings was accentuated by the last stranding, earlier this month, when a 30-foot humpback female that washed onto the beach in Seaside Park had propeller wounds and a fractured skull.

    “Every one of them has been found to be a boat,” Potosnak said. “Boats are the No. 1 threat. The second is abandoned fishing nets. And the third is plastic pollution."

    Congressman Van Drew Blasts the Biden Administration for Ignoring the Truth on Offshore Wind Development


    Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Van Drew slammed the Biden administration for its continual lack of transparency with the American people - this time about the correlation of offshore wind development and the death of endangered whales. The following statement comes after the public release of an internal letter from 2022, addressed to Brian Ho**er, the lead biologist of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) from Sean Hayes, the Chief of Protected Species at National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) regarding the decades long impact offshore wind will have on North Atlantic right whales.

    "To say I am surprised that the Biden administration is hiding the truth from the American people yet again, would be a lie. This letter, which only came to light through a Freedom of Information Act request, contains critical information that this administration has failed to acknowledge and purposely ignored in order to further their Green New Deal Agenda without debate or opposition. And the mainstream media is helping them do it," said Congressman Van Drew. "Just this week, the New York Times put out an article alleging that online shopping was partially to blame for the over 20 whale deaths in the past three months, saying it's because of increased cargo traffic. This is a lie. A link in their own article showed that cargo ship traffic in the region from November to December of 2022 actually DECREASED by 15%.

    "Hearings are critical. If the federal government and these offshore wind companies have nothing to hide, then prove it. They must prove that the development of these projects will have no effect on the environment, which is hard to believe following the death of over a dozen whales in the Northeast region where surveying is currently taking place. It is also hard to believe when their own scientists have been wholly ignored when attempting to highlight concerns about these projects and their effect on endangered whale species. They refuse to acknowledge that their plan to 'save the world' through alternative energy sources will have detrimental and catastrophic effects on our environment and marine animals. But, as long as these offshore wind companies make their profits under the guise of stopping climate change, I guess it doesn't matter to this administration. Accountability is coming."

    Congressman Van Drew will be holding a local hearing on the development of these offshore wind turbines on March 16th at the Wildwood Convention Center.
