Skip to comments.7th dead whale washed up on Jersey Shore ‘bad news on top of bad news’
Posted on 01/13/2023 6:20:14 PM PST by conservative98
The seventh dead whale in a little over a month washed up on the Jersey Shore this week, sparking a debate about the impact of off-shore activities on marine life.
The 20-foot-long humpback whale was found on the beach on Thursday afternoon in Brigantine, the Marine Mammal Stranding Center (MMSC) confirmed Friday.
“Due to the incoming tide and low light last night, staff returned at daybreak this morning to take photos,” the update read.
“Plans are underway for a necropsy to be performed on the animal.”
Thursday’s discovery occurred just miles from where another dead whale was found in Atlantic City on Jan. 7, NJ Advance Media reported.
A 30-foot female humpback also washed up in the area on Dec. 23.
In addition, a 12-foot sperm whale washed up in Keansburg on Dec. 5, followed by a juvenile humpback whale in Strathmere on Dec. 10.
Further away, a humpback whale washed up in Amagansett, NY on Dec. 6, while a female sperm whale was found in Rockaway Beach, Queens on Dec. 12.
The disturbing spate of whale deaths along the New York-New Jersey coastline in recent weeks has sparked local concerns about the harms off-short wind development poses to marine life.
Although there are currently no off-shore wind turbines in New Jersey, there are several projects are underway as Gov. Murphy urges the state to reach an offshore electric wind generation goal of 11,000 megawatts of usage by 2040, the outlet reported.
During a radio appearance Wednesday, Murphy called the whale deaths “tragic” and vowed that an investigation was underway to determine the cause.

As discussed on today’s Mark Levin show:
Finally, the Democrat green energy bill is destroying the environment, and we can see it with the amount of beached whales washing up on shores near offshore windmills like in Atlantic City, NJ. These wind turbines are being built all the way down the eastern seaboard which is a disgrace. Nothing gets in the way of climate change Marxists, especially facts.
Well, Dr Malone says they’re putting nRNA in animals too.
What’s Hillary doing in New Jersey?
Maybe they could sell the whale blubber to highest bidder.
“Must Take All!”
Call somebody up who lives in Japan.
7th whale on Friday the 13th? 7 & 13 together are bad luck
Did the whale have lobster claw scars?
6 dead whales, including an endangered female humpback, have washed up in the past 33 days along the New Jersey coast. Many believe this is directly connected to the giant wind turbines being built in the Atlantic. They also kill about 500,000 birds a year https://t.co/3q8o6yZ1Uu pic.twitter.com/JdsrDbSAa2— David Burke 🇺🇸 (@ConservativeTht) January 12, 2023
This has to be the fault of commercial fishermen, sport fishermen and lobstermen!
No way we can blame the undersea acoustic testing that is being done to find adequate foundation locations to erect wind farms
Nonsense. It was once predicted that the humpback whale would soon disappear. It has not. The whale is not endangered. A few whales dead on a shore does not mean a catastrophe. This is all about control, manipulation and taxing for a select few, nothing more. Nonsense.
Which has the better hand in the leftist PC poker game? Whales or wind turbines? I’d say, judging by how few media reports on birds killed by the turbines there are, turbines have a better hand.
Is there a marine biologist around?
When somebody is President of the United States, the responsibility is total. pic.twitter.com/hmhkBymGob— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) April 16, 2020
Donald Trump has had a lot of failures in his career, but he knows how to do one thing well: inherit something great and squander it. And never take any responsibility. pic.twitter.com/mDTSFogeUW— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 15, 2020
Here’s my promise to you: If I’m elected president, I will always choose to unite rather than divide.
I’ll take responsibility instead of blaming others.
I’ll never forget that the job isn’t about me — it’s about you.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 16, 2020
What did they force the whales to take the Wuhan vaccine too???
In times of crisis, the American people deserve a president who tells them the truth and takes responsibility. Donald Trump has not been that president. pic.twitter.com/QikZiHZeXX— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) May 4, 2020
The presidency is about a lot more than tweeting from your golf cart. It requires taking on the ultimate responsibility for the biggest decisions in the world. Donald Trump simply wasn’t prepared for that. I promise you I will be.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) May 24, 2020
Donald Trump has called himself a "cheerleader" for the nation. But we don't need a cheerleader — we need a President. One who will:
- Lead by example
- Take responsibility
- Tell the unvarnished truth
- Listen to the experts and follow the science— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) July 3, 2020
They don’t care when windmills Chop up birds and Owls and bats 24 hours a day.
Their entire movement is fake. It’s about money and power.
Cold weather meant the false reports caused by Chris Christie on the shore last year were not repeated.
Actually it's the fault of Maine lobstermen and their traps even though there are no Maine lobstermen operating off of NJ. (Reference to the supposed danger lobstering is posing to the right whales.)
