Wind Farms Slaughtering Golden Eagles
Here in North Dakota, after months of investigation by federal officials, a group of oil companies were charged with crimes in federal court for the death of a couple of dozen common water fowl. Those charges have since been tossed out of federal court, and the partisan Obama-appointed prosecutor responsible for them has been mocked on the national stage, yet the federal government’s double standard for bird deaths continues.
While a few dead ducks are enough for oil companies to find themselves charged as criminals in federal court, wind farms are slaughtering more rare species of birds such as endangered whooping cranes and golden eagles.
So if you’re a government-approved source of energy, killing even endangered species is ok. Because that’s “green” energy or something.
But if you’re a source of energy the government doesn’t approve of, then you’re a target for prosecution.
Does that sound like justice?Tags: golden eagles, green energy, wind power
