    Thumbs down Windmills killing American Eagles

    So we need more oil, they (treehuggers/gubment) will not let us drill/pipeline because of what it will do to the environment and the animals.

    So this is what happens when idiots take command of the law of the land

    Eagle slaughter: Wind farms kill 67 eagles in 5 years - Washington Times


    Wonder if the idiots will protest the windmills that THEY wanted in the first place.

    Except that the reality is that Windmills are one of the smallest causes of bird deaths;

    Brad according to the article there are many more than mentioned that are being killed. My point being, when the libaturds get in charge of anything they make it much worse than what it was in the first place. I'm sure it isn't just the eagles that are being killed as far as birds go.

    They won't drill out west because of some lizard. Lizard = Eagle food!

    If the libaturds can't run a country then they will of course...screw up the energy big time. Let us not forget Solyndra.

    Oil is a finite resource, we need to find a different energy source.

    Truthfully, I'm all for drilling and coal. I think we got plenty of both, dam's also work but I'm sure the treehuggers got a problem with that too.

    Giant whirly gigs in the sky is just messed up IMO - but I'm all for the solar thing, they don't move a lot.

    Killing birds using windmills is perfectly fine in our Glorious Leader’s opinion. Plus one of His Lordships campaign promises was to bankrupt the oil and gas industry.

    The Obama administration has charged oil companies for drowning birds in their waste pits, and power companies for electrocuting birds on power lines.

    But the administration has never fined or prosecuted a wind-energy company, even those that flout the law repeatedly.

    "What it boils down to is this: If you electrocute an eagle, that is bad, but if you chop it to pieces, that is OK," said Tim Eicher, a former U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service enforcement agent based in Cody.

    Sixty-seven eagles would not provide as many feathers as the ones worn by all the fancy dancers at a week-end powwow.
