U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Says Killing Eagles is OK!

“SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27 (UPI) —
A Solano County, Calif., wind farm would be the first renewable energy project in the nation allowed to kill eagles under a federal plan, a U.S. agency said.
Under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposal, outlined in a draft environmental report released Thursday, the Shiloh IV Wind Project would be issued a golden eagle take permit for its 3,500-acre plant in the Montezuma Hills, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
The plan would allow the company’s 50 wind turbines to kill as many as five golden eagles in a five-year period in exchange for measures to protect the birds, including retrofitting 133 power poles to prevent electrocutions, the Chronicle said.
“The bottom line is a permit will help preserve eagles,” said Scott Flaherty, the deputy assistant regional director of external affairs for the Fish and Wildlife Service.”

Paraphrasing … They had to kill the Eagles to save them, *

It is a pretty sick world where an agency tasked with preserving Eagles is goving out permits to kill Eagles and turning a blind eye to the Eagles already being electrocuted.

Shilo IV is rated at 102.5 MW , which means it may average 25MW.

 

Did you know you can buy a 100MW gas generator for around 30 million.
