We have to kill eagles in order to save them.

That’s now the official policy of the U.S. Interior Department. On Friday, the agency announced that it would grant some wind-energy companies permits that will allow them to kill or injure bald and golden eagles for up to 30 years without penalty.

The move is an unprecedented gift to the wind-energy industry, which has been lobbying for the 30-year permit for several years. Shortly after the deal was announced, the wind-energy lobby issued a statement that would make George Orwell proud. An official with the American Wind Energy Association declared that this “is not a program to kill eagles.” It is, he claimed, “about conservation.”

Well then. We can now rest easy. Big Wind is saving eagles by getting permits to kill them. Read article

  1. Substitute the word “eagles” with the word, “politicians”, and they may be on to something! Culling that population, could only benefit us all….

  2. In regards to Robert Bryce he really doesn’t have his head screwed on right!!!! – his comments do not make any sense who so ever!!! than thinking about it – for him to make the comments he did he has no common sense period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. The issue here is that the Migratory Bird Treaty that has stood for some 95 years has now been trashed in the U.S. with the approval of the President.
    This could never have been accomplished without suport by members of the U.S. Senate.
    This leaves Canada to stand alone to protect migratory birds. Mexico is so corrupt they can be bought off anyway.
    Eagles are also migratory birds.
    Now the U.S. IWT developers in Canada don’t have to worry about any questions raised about them in Washington due to treaty violations.
