“But 39 bald eagles a year killed by the windmills in Altamont Pass is OK?”
From a Fox Article:
The wind sector has had an exemption from prosecution under two of Americas oldest wildlife-protection laws: the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Eagle Protection Act. A violation of either law could result in a fine up to $250,000 or two years imprisonment. To date, the Obama administration — following in the footsteps of the George W. Bush administration has not prosecuted a single case against the wind industry. What they have done is gone after oil and natural gas providers for similar infractions.
How does an industry kill more than 2,000 eagles and not be fined once? Johns said. Its a head scratcher.
