Killing an eagle can put you in jail for a year and cost $5,000, under federal law. But killing hundreds of eagles in the name of saving the planet earns you taxpayer subsidies?
As reported by the Washington Post,
One of the nation’s largest wind farms, the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area near Livermore, Calif., has killed an average of nearly 2,000 raptors annually, including more than 500 eagles, over four years, according to federal agencies and bird watchers.
DDT never harmed any eagle, but was banned anyway, despite its great public health utility. Wind turbines are unnecessary, expensive and kill thousands and thousands of birds annually — and are considered “green”. Go figure.
