Wildlife deaths from “green” energy are acceptable

We did a post earlier this year about the deaths of hundreds of golden and bald eagles killed each year by the wind turbines in Northern California’s Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area.  Although these birds are highly protected by federal law, the response from this administration most closely resembles a yawn.

Last week, however, the U.S. Attorney for North Dakota decided to bring federal criminal charges against seven oil and natural gas companies because 28 migratory birds had been found dead on their property.  Brigham Oil and Gas Company, as an example, has been charged with having two dead mallard ducks on their property.  Each violation carries a $15,000 fine and 6 months in jail.

The charges were brought against the seven oil producers by US Attorney Tim Purdon in a move that has been viewed by critics as a targeted effort to advance the Obama administration’s war on fossil fuels.

I wonder how those “critics” got that idea?

PlainsDaily asked Purdon today if he plans on investigating the migratory bird deaths due to wind farms in North Dakota, but he declined comment.

Can anyone say, “selective enforcement”?

    We got the enviromentalists screaming about the oil pipeline from Canada to Texas but don’t hear a squawk out of them with dead eagles. It’s just collateral damage.

      The silence from the screaming-greenies tells us volumes about what these whackos really are, and that is environmentalist whores.  According to these nuts the hunting and killing of any animal is a mortal sin, unless of course it occurs where one of their pet projects is involved.  These people are morally bankrupt, to say the very least!

    Hey, the snail darters are laughing. 
    But then, eagles are evil carnivores, if they only ate plants, maybe they would have had a chance.
    Hypocrisy from government, who would have thought.

    Why should they/lefties care about eagles?  They are after all a sign of American strength and exceptionalism and should be destroyed like America

    Can Brigham Oil & Gas please take out that obnoxious, rapping Aflac duck while they’re at it?  Although, it would be more entertaining to see it get sucked into a wind turbine and spit out the other side.  Not that I ever endorse violence against animals…”Just certain ones”.

    Wow – specific targeting of industries (and naughty individuals like the owners of  Gibson) that are on the “bad” list! “Investing” hundreds of millions into “good” list industries that are nothing but black hole baksheesh. And the O, (love child of Helen Keller and Hugo Chavez) wonders why American businesses are not hiring and the economy is not expanding.

    Isn’t inner city poverty, the disintegration of the Black family unit, etc. just a perverse result of Democrat policies too (keeping thier constituents ‘hooked’ on the US teet)?  To a Lib, it’s the end game that matters most…consequences be damned.

    Capricious and arbitrary application of regulatory power.
    Please read the charges against the crown as enumerated by Jefferson in the declaration of Independence and note the following assignment of responsibility for remedy.
