The effect of creating Sea Forests (Off-shore Wind Farms) on Marine Life


With regards to my earlier post on Wind Turbines, I thought I would look up any research there is on the effect on marine life to their presence. The most definitive seems to be this report from Sweden. I personally have no problem with creating ‘Sea Forests’. However we create and use energy systems, it is going to impact on our environment and all living things. Our long term aim should be to continue along this road, improving our technology along the way to cause less environmental impact. The alternative is to suck our planet dry of fossil fuel and be left with nuclear energy until that too runs out.

Unfortunately, while we improve our clean energy technology, it is necessary to continue using fossil and nuclear fuel; and to make the most of shale gas.
