Don’t industrialize our ocean off Morro Bay

The proposed Morro Bay offshore wind farm project is a serious danger to whale migration/navigation (with turbines anchored into the seabed a mile below!) and serves only to keep the power plant “on ice” for future startup of a large desalination unit or some other very destructive industrial use of the “once-through cooling” seawater intake. Scientists are also concerned with the effect all this vibration will have on marine life.

Don’t allow this mass industrialization of our ocean. There’s no need for them at all; home rooftop solar panels do the job without all the carnage. These are the same old energy companies and opportunistic profiteers with links to multinational corporations trying desperately to stay in charge of our energy on/off switch.
