Cohen: Hypocrisy OKs birds’ slaughter | Boston Herald

Do you know what your president’s been up to? Everyone knows of his green energy agenda and his wanton support for the companies who produce it, with government backed loans. Now, with absolutely no fanfare, President Obama has lifted the burden of protecting eagles and other protected birds, from wind turbines. Sorry all you endangered birds of prey but, wind energy comes at a price and you’re it.

‘If you’re a wind turbine company, you can apply for a permit green-lighting the killing of more birds and eagles for the next three decades without penalty thanks to an “administrative” waiver President Obama quietly signed Friday.’

I’m all for sustainable energy and measures to break our dependence on coal and oil, but I find this rather sad.
