Obama Administration Proposes 30-Year Eagle Kill Permits
Heartland ^ | 1/18/14 | Alyssa Carducci

Posted on 01/19/2014 5:29:07 PM PST by Libloather

The Obama administration announced a proposal to grant 30-year permits for wind turbine facilities to kill bald and golden eagles, causing an uproar among environmentalist groups.

**SNIP**

The National Audubon Society, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the American Bird Conservancy, and the Conservation Law Center are some of the environmental organizations opposing the permits.

The National Audubon Society referred to the 30-year permit proposal as “a stunningly bad move.”

perhaps his imam told him that once we wipe out the Eagle...the Symbol of The Infidel....that his caliphate can begin?

But just let a little old lady pick up an eagle feather from the ground and see what happens.

Well, eagles shouldn’t either be wiped out or worshiped.

As long as there are enough of them to be able to afford to do this (and I’d still like to see eagle repellent measures used around these windmills if practicable) we shouldn’t be all uptight about eagle feathers either. (Actually the windmill kill ought to keep any eagle feather aficionado in eagle feathers up to their neck.)

Millions of taxpayer dollars were spent to save the eagles and now we’re going to allow them to be killed by the environmentalists’ goofy “Save da planet” reminders? (Windmills). That’s bull****!

Well part of it was lax oversight of government by “you and I.”

A constitution that starts with “We The People” is dangerous. If “We The People” get Sloppy (WHEN they do) then so will the corresponding government....

Doesn’t like the AMERICAN Bald Eagle.

Any surprise??? If it was called the Koranic North American Eagle, it would be a different story.

I feel the loss of these magnificent birds, and I would add Red-tailed Hawks to the list of impacted species that should be protected from permitted green avicide.

The National Audubon Society referred to the 30-year permit proposal as “a stunningly bad move.”

Marxists/progressives/Democrats never seem to understand that they really have no say, and they never actually had one.

(The term "useful" comes to mind.)

Maybe they should paint the blades orange to warn the eagles of danger.

Sounds about right. After all, the Eagle is an American symbol. Why wouldn’t he want them killed?

Just turn off the windmills during the day. And then turn them off at night to save the owls and bats. They could turn them on for like three minutes at dawn. But that would probably scare the gophers that the eagles eat, so the only thing to do is to build more dams.

Unless you are a Native American simply picking up an eagle feather in the woods could bring you a hefty fine if not jail time under federal laws. Killing an eagle could get you serious time in a federal prison. Any type of land development that might even have any effect on eagle habitat let alone cause the death of eagles would be stopped by federal authorities. However you can build a monster windmill that chops up eagles like a blender and that is OK. What total hypocrisy.

So Obama will kill the eagles to protect his wind power fantasies, but he won't turn the water back on for Central California farmers who grow the world's produce because of the Delta Smelt fish?

Maybe the folks in California can get a pass on killing those damn fish, so they can flow water to the Central Valley again?!?!?

Cui bono?

What company is the largest US manufacturer of wind turbines? What company stands to sell plenty of natural gas generators in the forced shift from coal to natural gas? What company used its propaganda, er, broadcast arm to boost candidate Obama and global warming fears at every turn? None other than GE, whose CEO Jeffrey Immelt chaired the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, and which appears to be quite effective at leveraging crony capital in DC.
