Killer wind

Bob Stern, president of Save LBI, said it best: “We are not against wind; we just want it done right!” We all have been reading about the issues regarding offshore LBI wind projects, both pro and con. Every one of the mayors on LBI has written strong letters opposing the near-shore construction of wind farms, primarily if the structures are visible from our pristine beaches. Fishermen are against the development due to habitat changes. As an example, look at the . . . Complete story »

An April agreement between the New Jersey Economic Development Authority and Orsted Offshore North America has cleared a path for Ocean Wind 1, the Garden State’s inaugural offshore wind development, a boon to Gov. Phil Murphy’s vision of achieving 100 percent clean energy for the state by 2050. However, local environmental leaders are questioning the methodology of this installation, and others to come, without first establishing a precedent that mitigates the impact on marine life, adjacent river habitats and maritime . . .

Karen Bergman: a passionate voice to keep Ocean City moving forward

I am personally against the implementation of the wind mills off the coastline. From what I have researched, it does not sound like a feasible option –environmentally or economically. The concept is too new for anyone to be able to access the long-term effect on our ocean environment. Complete story »

Pete Madden: a steadfast, experienced voice putting Ocean City first

I support the idea of green energy and think it is an important topic to explore as we continue to use the limited natural resources the planet has, but I do not believe a wind farm off our coastline is a feasible and practical application. Complete story »

Tony Polcini: a family man committed to unity on council

I do not believe the wind farm is a sustainable and viable option for Ocean City. Green Energy, in theory, is a critical component of forward progress of not only our community, but the country as a whole, but the impact a wind farm would have on our coastal community is not one I support.

Robert “Bob” Stern, founder of Save LBI, a coalition formed to push proposed wind turbine projects further from shore, says New Jersey’s wind energy projects, as they are currently designed, will harm both. “People come to this island to get that open vista, to escape, in a way, civilization and all the clutter and noise,” the Beach Haven resident . . .
