Watch now (29 mins) | A month ago, Public released our first documentary, Thrown To The Wind, by journalist and filmmaker Jonah Markowitz. Thrown To The Wind reveals the reality behind the specious claims of an industry that has long billed itself as a boon to the natural environment. Our film exposes the price the world is actually paying for the industrialization of our oceans by offshore wind corporations: the killing of whales and the potential extinction of an entire cetacean species.
The irony that it was fossilfuels, specifically petroleum, that *saved* whales from extinction is massive.
When I saw what MS and Matt T had to deal with in the congressional hearings from Stacy Plaskit I had to start paying for this blog, and it has been worth every cent. Thanks guys
Perhaps the best money I’ve ever spent, for ANY publication. Keep up the outstanding work!
You are literally working to save the world against titans of destruction and monsters without souls.Thank you.
Proud to be a supporter of Public.
Glad to be a subscriber, and glad you are putting the film outaide the paywall. Doomberg referenced Public and the film in an excellent article called "Windbaggery," and many of his subscribers were trying to figure out how to see it.
It's good to be able to share this. Thanks!
This is right up the PBS alley. Yeah, right!
Is this a shortened version of the full documentary? In my searching on YouTube, I see one that is almost 2 hours long, but I somehow cannot access it. This is great! I want to find the full one and save it as MP4 before it is somehow removed.
Whats urgently needed now is legal action
I've been checking YouTube and still no documentary.
- Where can regular people watch the documentary.
I did a search and found this hit piece claiming Shellenberger is basically right-wing about the right-whales. I'm kidding...
Fox News is touting a dubious new documentary repeating misleading claims about offshore wind link to whale deaths

"Thrown to the Wind was produced by anti-renewable energy activist Michael Shellenberger"
Believe it or not, it is better to have hit pieces like this rather than silence. I'll check again in a week to see if there is more.
I watched it earlier. Shocking ignorance on the behalf of the supposed activists. We’re getting played here, folks.
Thank you, Michael!
Thank you for your important work and for thanking us. I don’t get to read everything but am very happy to support your work.
I hope someday you write about the local citizen groups that are pushing back on renewables destroying prime farmland and rural viewscapes.
I'm very proud to support Public. I wish this film didn't need to be make, but am so glad it was. Keep up the excellent work.
Where can we watch this?
