Eagle deaths from wind farms OK?  

Credit:  Missoulian | missoulian.com ~~

The Missoulian recently (July 16) published an anti-hunting tirade by the AP mentioning that 38 out of 336 bald eagle deaths over a 15-year period in New York were due to lead poisoning blamed on hunters. The hit piece goes on to discuss banning lead ammunition.

All one has to do is google “number of bald eagles killed by wind turbines” to get a more complete story. Wind farms, according to a government study, will kill “only” 1.4 million birds per year by 2030. Just one California wind farm killed an estimated average of 114 golden eagles annually, but this has added up to 2,900 dead “goldies” since it was built 25 years ago.

President Obama, before leaving office, authorized wind farms to kill 4,200 bald eagles per year over the next 30 years. The bald eagle population is estimated at 143,000 in the lower 48 and Alaska. The golden eagle population is estimated at only 41,000.

If you are a Democrat, liberal or progressive, apparently you believe it is OK to kill thousands of protected eagles yearly by wind farming but it is a tragedy if an average of 2.5 eagles annually are killed in New York by lead suspected to come from hunters.
