Fox News Investigates Obama Administration's War on Birds

Wind energy companies are being given a 30-year pass under the Obama administration to kill endangered species

Obama’s War on Birds (Washington Free Beacon)

Under the Obama administration, average citizens continue be prosecuted for violating protected species laws, while wind energy companies have been given a 30-year pass to kill an unlimited number of endangered birds.

Fox News’s Happening Now reported Thursday on several cases of individuals who have been arrested, fined, or placed on probation on account of protected species laws: a tree trimmer who accidentally upset a heron’s nest, a woman who fed a whale in San Francisco, and a bird watcher from New York City who picked up a dead hawk because he feared other animals would eat its corpse.

Bob Johns of the American Bird Conservancy complained to Fox about the wind energy companies’ “get out of jail free card”, saying “What they are doing is ignoring the law. The oil and gas industry, for example, they have to abide by these laws, they’re not killing bald and golden eagles, and if they do, they’re going to be prosecuted for it.”
