Save the whales so that they can save us?

No one knows what the spread of offshore wind farms will do to the whale population worldwide. Off-shore wind power to many people means out of sight, out of mind - only a few people (like Christopher Booker for example) seem to care enough to point out its expensive drawbacks.

This article in the New Scientist should make us all think again about whales, and their importance to the oceans, and the ocean's carbon cycle.

There are several links on this blog to research and articles warning about the effects of underwater noise on whales, dolphins, and even fish. Whatever happened to the precautionary principle?

You can find them here.
