    Under the heading of, "You can't have it both ways" comes this:

    Wind energy company pleads guilty to killing eagles | Fox News

    The Obama administration is fining wind company for killing Eagles.

    Isn't this the same administration that has pushed Wind and Solar energy like a drug dealer pushes Meth?

    Have they not heard of "unintended consequences"? and "acceptable collateral damage"?

    Do they want Wind Power plants or NOT?

    Geez.

    Philadelphia Eagles? I mean, they have been somewhat of a disappointment, but killing them seems extreme.

    I think the eagles should be fined for damage to the windmills and loss of product during the repair time.

    Not when there is money to be made and campaign donations to be had from the Fossil Fuels Industry.

    Yeah, there's a discussion to be had regarding the number of eagle deaths that we'd consider 'acceptable'.

    All they need to do is post No Eagle Signs around the Wind Plants. Yanno, same as they do with the Gun Buster signs. Everything will be fine.

    To paraphrase an old funny, "When the reporter asked the coach about the execution of his team he said he was all for it."



    It's like one up north that some town insisted on building. Everyone was for it. Put it up, everyone complained about the sound it made when the wind blew. First they restricted the times it could be used, then they just quit using it. Some people don't think things through.

    Speaking of windmills, it seems high wind is not good for them either.

    As long as Joe Walsh is protected. The rest, we could all do without.

    I don't know, seems unimportant. Wind power is still a good thing and Eagles dying still sucks. The fine is to ensure that there's some effort to fix the problem, which doesn't seem like it would take all that much effort. Calling it acceptable collateral damage is like saying you don't mind having kids with three ears, because before that meltdown the nuclear plant was doing a lot of good
