DescriptionOffshore wind farms are a key part of reducing the effects of climate change, but there is controversy surrounding their impact on wildlife.

Donald Trump, Ted Kennedy and Mitt Romney have all publicly opposed offshore wind farms in the past due to issues such as visual impact and potential harm to animals.

Allegations have been made that offshore wind farms are causing an increase in whale strandings, but scientists and independent agencies say there is no evidence to support this.

Talking to Newsweek, John Kerry has spoken out against this disinformation campaign in his call for more renewable energy. He said while caution is justified, the climate crisis is more pressing.
