Subject: END Industrial Wind's 30-Year FREE PASS To Kill Eagles!
I am a long-time wildlife enthusiast, environmental advocate, Cornell-certified Master Gardener, New York State-certified Health Educator, and tireless advocate for scientifically, environmentally sound energy policy. Industrial wind - as it is being implemented today, with these 400' - 500' giant Bird Cuisinarts, fails the test miserably.
Our national symbol - the Bald Eagle, is literally threatened with extinction thanks to Big Wind's blades of death! The technology is there today to move us far beyond these antiquated bird-killing machines, but the reason corporate & political elitists are willing to stick with the status quo is because there is so much money in it for them as is - the eagles be damned. We simply can NOT stand by and allow this slaughter to occur without working to STOP it! I, for one, do not want to have to explain to my children why I stood by and did nothing to STOP this MASSACRE!
So I created a petition to The New York State House, The New York State Senate, Governor Andrew Cuomo, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
"President Obama recently signed a regulation into law which will allow the industrial wind industry to KILL EAGLES for 30 YEARS without penalty, blatantly violating the Endangered Species Act. See:
Instead of showing preferential treatment to any particular energy source -- especially since it literally threatens eagles (Bald & Golden), condors, whooping cranes, bats, and many other already-endangered species with extinction -- the President and Congress should instead be encouraging the development of new technologies (ie: bladeless wind turbines, new bio-mass technologies, etc) that will not slaughter our national symbol in the process!
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION to help END these deadly "Eagle Take Permits.""
