Radical environmentalists are exploiting plight of North Atlantic right whales

“A coalition of public interest groups – The Heartland Institute, the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), and the American Coalition for Ocean Protection (ACOP) – announced today that they have hired counsel to explore a lawsuit protecting the right whale from Dominion Energy’s efforts to place an offshore wind (OSW) project directly in their habitat off the coast of Virginia. The coalition has retained as counsel the law firm of Gatzke, Dillon and Ballance (GDB) of Carlsbad, California to represent them in evaluating the upcoming draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is producing for the Coastal Virginia Offshore Energy Project, managed and constructed by Dominion Energy of Virginia.” – Coalition Letter
