The U.S. government is waiving penalties against wind power farms that incur eagle kills with their turbine blades.
Bald Eagles are important to us it is what gives us courage in battle!
eagles dont deserve to die because of us. that is stupid.
yes eagles dont contribute to the economy like wind farms. + eagles dont die that much + farmers cant really help that.
Wind enegy is expensive and has high mantenance costs.
Save bald eagles at all times!
I believe that the bans should be restricted. Oviously, a healthier environment is VERY important, but they should look at the demographics of where bald eagles nest and reside and not be able to buld wind farms within a certain radius of that area.
our nations symbol must be protected
Eagles are my passion. dont kill my passion. you feel me?
eagles will die peacefully
i dont think eagles should die because of us, but ind power is very eco-friendly and we need it. withought windpower we would vause even more destruction.
Hello. The Eagle Population is slowly yet sporaticlly increasing due to eagle repopulation efforts. How many eagles REALLY die each day due to wind turbines? None. Yeah. Wind for the win.
a baseless, naked assertion.
how can the energy be "cleaner" if it affects an element of nature (eagles) in a negative way?
There should be a dome where we keep eagles safe. Like a National Dome! We should only keep a small fration of eagles in it with food. Dont judge :(
save the eagles!
i like egals ecsape there always eating the worms and animals that we need but we will love to have a saft world with eagls in it
I think that there are valid points on both sides of this issue. On the one hand, wind power is convenient and relatively clean. On the other, the above is not a reason to kill the wildlife, particularly something as protected as our national bird.
Cold fusion is the way to go, if we can ever figure it out.
I think clean energy is important to our future, but the Eagle has been our emblem for decades. Both animals and humans will be affected in the government's desicion.
Perhaps the eagles that flew into the blades were the weakest links in the eagle gene pool...
I dont know if they should be protected
