HOUSTON, TX – Apparently, the government thinks its OK to give American wind farms an official pass to kill our national bird.
The White House now allows bird deaths for 30 years instead of 5 years originally; all thanks to an updated permit they signed off on. The learning process huh?
Recent studies show wind turbines in Wyoming killed at least 67 bald or golden eagles since 2008. Northern California wind farms kill an estimated 60 eagles year. And not a single facility ever obtained a permit.
Just last month, Duke Energy Corporation became the nations first ever wind power plant to have environmental laws enforced. Duke paid a settlement of $1 million for killing 14 eagles and 149 other birds.
Just a million? How is this even acceptable?
Somebody please write Obama a letter; what’s next stomp out all the roses for greener grass. This is ridicules.
