Posted on 12/09/2013 7:07:52 AM PST by SeekAndFind
We have to kill eagles in order to save them.
Thats now the official policy of the U.S. Interior Department. On Friday, the agency announced that it would grant some wind-energy companies permits that will allow them to kill or injure bald and golden eagles for up to 30 years without penalty.
The move is an unprecedented gift to the wind-energy industry, which has been lobbying for the 30-year permit for several years. Shortly after the deal was announced, the wind-energy lobby issued a statement that would make George Orwell proud. An official with the American Wind Energy Association declared that this is not a program to kill eagles. It is, he claimed, about conservation.
Well then. We can now rest easy. Big Wind is saving eagles by getting permits to kill them.
Dozens of environmental groups, including the American Bird Conservancy, the Conservation Law Center, and the National Audubon Society, opposed the deal. Under the headline Interior Dept. Rule Greenlights Eagle Slaughter at Wind Farms, Audubon issued a statement calling it a stunningly bad move and quoting the groups president and CEO, David Yarnold: Instead of balancing the need for conservation and renewable energy, Interior wrote the wind industry a blank check. He called it outrageous that the government is sanctioning the killing of Americas symbol, the Bald Eagle. Another group, the San Diegobased Protect Our Communities Foundation, said it remains opposed to the new permit program because it would harm eagles, has not been adequately studied, and violates federal law. Kelly Fuller, a consultant working for the group, told me that the permit deal is a gift to the wind industry and a disaster for eagles and the people who care about eagles.

Kills eagles....kind of symbolic, don’t you think?
But it makes libs feel good about themselves for “caring” and at the same time funnels taxpayer money to democrat donors.
It’s not “worthless” by any means.
Any symbol of America Obama is there to kill it ... literally in this case.
WIND FARMS KILL EAGLES
Can’t they build a wind farm that attracts democrats?

LIBs hate. These fools hate anything that symbolizes something other than their self-loathing and slimey degeneracy. They chop up babies through abortion and chop up birds. Just like their moozlum brothers...chop chop chop.
PETA vs Environmentalist Wackos... Who to side with?
I think I’ll just ask someone to pass me the popcorn !!
Wish the Lions would have killed them.
If I remember correctly, it is (or used to be) illegal to even be in possession of an eagle feather. Looks like there is going to be a lot of loose ones flying around now.
Rename eagles “muhammed birds” and the windmills will be shut down immediately.
I hope they died knowing they gave their life for the green movement.
