Since you (and others) blew the curtain away on CRI and its front groups, they've gotten smart(er) at trying to cover their tracks. For instance, the "donate" button on NJ's "Protect Our Coast" no longer directs to CRI. CRI and POC claim to be independent of each other. CRI claims that they only get "a little" money from the oil and gas industry. See WaPo https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment/2023/08/08/offshore-wind-energy-east-coast/ Meanwhile, it seems to me that the anti-wind people are way more passionate about their position than the pro-winds. The antis, including the commercial fishing industry, are putting a lot of effort into flooding the zone with lots of claims against offshore wind and people seem to be buying it. Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwfJJfG9vfo I have yet to see anything remotely equivalent on the pro-wind side.
