Subject Golden Eagle Symbol of USA Commits Mass Suicide!!!
Poster Handle Mobyhunr
Post Content
California's attempts to switch to green energy have inadvertently put the survival of the state’s golden eagles at risk.

WTF...‘How's the public going to feel about wind energy if a condor hits the turbines?’

Scores of the protected birds have been dying each year after colliding with the blades of about 5,000 wind turbines.

Now the drive for renewable power sources, such as wind and the sun, being promoted by President Obama and state Governor Jerry Brown has raised fears that the number of newborn golden eagles may not be able to keep pace with the number of turbine fatalities.

Nationwide, about 440,000 birds are said to be accidentally killed at wind farms each year, as well as thousands more bats. With the government pushing for more wind energy farms, that statistic is likely to rise.
