Moonbats at least have the redeeming quality that they care about the plight of wild animals — except when they don’t:
The Obama administration has never fined or prosecuted a wind farm for killing eagles and other protected bird species, shielding the industry from liability and helping keep the scope of the deaths secret, an Associated Press investigation has found.
If that’s the way you want it, AP, don’t be surprised when the Injustice Department starts snooping through your phone records.
More than 573,000 birds are killed by the country’s wind farms each year, including 83,000 hunting birds such as hawks, falcons and eagles, according to an estimate published in March in the peer-reviewed Wildlife Society Bulletin.
Each death is federal crime, a charge that the Obama administration has used to prosecute oil companies when birds drown in their waste pits, and power companies when birds are electrocuted by their power lines. No wind energy company has been prosecuted, even those that repeatedly flout the law.
Wind power, a pollution-free energy intended to ease [nonexistent] global warming, is a cornerstone of President Barack Obama’s energy plan.
The mysterious benefits of this plan to our rulers have nothing to do with the cost-efficiency of outlandishly expensive and unreliable wind turbines — or with the welfare of birds.
Just how many birds these largely useless eyesores kill is impossible to say,
because many companies aren’t required to disclose how many birds they kill. And when they do, experts say, the data can be unreliable.
When companies voluntarily report deaths, the Obama administration in many cases refuses to make the information public…
Obamunist transparency is a good thing, for those with a seat at Big Government’s table.
There is no seat there for golden eagles, at least four dozen of which have been killed in Wyoming alone since 2009. Nothing could be more symbolic than the decimation of eagles — our national symbol — by ideologically deranged and/or corrupt federal policy — except maybe the falling eagle background on this screenshot from the White House Twitter page:
