Obama to Give Wind Farms 30-Year Pass on Eagle Deaths





The Obama administration is about to approve a rule that will ensure the death of golden and bald eagles for the next 30 more years.

Hundreds of thousands of birds die each year flying into the deadly turbine blades atop the soaring towers that compose wind farms. The rule will give wind farms thirty year permits for the “non purposeful take of eagles-that is where the take is associated with but not the purpose of, the activity.’’ The take of eagles is also a euphemism for the slaughter of them.

The wind farms fulfill Obama’s ambitious pursuit of developing renewable energy sources. Unfortunately, some bird species being destroyed by the turbines are not renewable. As a result, Obama finds himself wedged between the ire of opposing green groups. In July, wildlife groups met with administration officials and lobbied against the granting of 30 year permits for energy companies that own the wind farms. 

Wildlife groups are advocating shorter leases and insist that a 30-year free pass for eagle “taking” is too long. They argue that before we are stuck with three decades of the rule, there are still some unanswered questions about how to prevent the destroying of the birds. Julie Falkner, the Defenders of Wildlife’s Senior Director of Renewable Energy Programs pondered, “The question is what is the science telling us about how to prevent eagle takings, and we’re still waiting for the science to tell us how that works.”

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

Allowing eagles to be killed is no problem if you are trying to destroy the symbols of American freedom. :Obounce:

Character still matters.  It always matters.

Yes, your honor, I did shoot that bald eagle but the purpose of my activity at the time was to test my new rifle.

Those turbines won't last that long.  Many are already obsolete and close to their maximum designed service life.

Not to mention an unsightly blight on the landscape.

When we drove across country   a few years ago, we saw them all over the place. Then a few years after that we drove a the same time of the year past those wind farms, most of the turbines were offline.

Compare those big, ugly wind turbines to the little oil and gas wells, that look inconspicuous along the roads.

And they actually provide us with ENERGY........


(I think wind farms are the ugliest thing to hit the environment since strip mining).

Don't forget, with liberalism the INTENT is more important than the outcome so the windmill program will be considered a "success" no matter how unsuccessful. 13291
