The Environmental Movement Turns Against The Climate Fraudsters

The Obama White House uses selective enforcement of the law to push many of their agendas. One of their victims being the Endangered Species Act

One of the nation’s leading bird conservation groups plans to sue the Obama administration over a federal regulation that allows wind energy companies to obtain 30-year permits to kill eagles without prosecution by the government.

The American Bird Conservancy on Wednesday announced its intent to file the lawsuit, arguing the Department of the Interior violated federal laws when it promulgated the regulation it says sanctions the killing of bald and golden eagles.

“The rule lacks a firm foundation in scientific justification and was generated without the benefit of a full assessment of its impacts on eagle populations,” said Michael Hutchins, National Coordinator of ABC’s Bird Smart Wind Energy Campaign.

The Obama administration announced in December it would allow companies to seek authorization to kill and harm bald and golden eagles for up to 30 years without penalty in a bid to balance the environmental trade-offs of green energy.

The Interior Department rule provides legal protection for the lifespan of wind farms and other projects if companies obtain permits and make efforts to avoid killing protected birds.

Companies must take additional measures if they kill or injure more eagles than they had estimated they would, or if new information suggests that eagle populations are being affected.

In its notice of intent to sue the government, the American Bird Conservancy argues that the rule “undermines the nation’s longstanding commitment to conservation of eagles—unique animals that are ‘ubiquitous in U.S. culture.”

The group says the regulation violates the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.

    Society desperately needs to resolve conflicts like this peacefully before battle-lines are drawn.

    The AGW debate may be succinctly described as the result of an ill-advised decision in 1945 to forbid public knowledge of the source of energy that destroyed Hiroshima. That happens to also be the source of energy that made our elements, birthed the solar system, controls Earth’s climate and sustains our lives.

    Suggestions, advice, comments would be appreciated from anyone for peacefully ending this conflict.

    Maybe they could prove the Eagles are immigrating into the US illegally. Then they would be protected.
