Feds look other way as wind farms kill birds — but haul oil and gas firms to court. Hi, we’re from the government and we’re here to screw you. So where’s the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, et al? Evidently as long as their getting paid off it’s perfectly OK.

Similar to their attitude towards mercury; it’s a terrible poison if it’s found in minute amounts in power plant emissions, but it’s just another chemical when, by government order, it’s in every light bulb in the country.

I wonder how many people follow the directions for getting rid of burned out or broken CFL light bulbs…lol

1. Do not break an HG light bulb. Keep all bulbs whole if possible. If an HG light bulb is accidentally broken, wear gloves while picking up the pieces, and carefully dispose of them in a trash bag. Wipe the area with a wet wipe, and put the wet wipe in the same trash bag. Place the trash bag with the broken bulb inside another trash bag. Mark the bag with a sign labeled, “Broken Mercury Light Bulb.”

2. Unscrew a burned out HG light bulb from your lamp just as you would an incandescent bulb. Place the used bulb in a trash bag, and place that bag inside another trash bag. Seal the openings, and then tape a slip of paper on the outer bag labeled, “Mercury Light Bulb.”

3. Take the used and/or broken mercury light bulbs to your nearest Home Depot–where they have a special recycling bin for mercury light bulbs–or take the bulbs to a state-approved recycling center.

Or throw them in the trash like any other lightbulb.

We could strap a few to the blades of the windmills, then they could first hand how the birds look when they splat on the things.

Oh, I read it wrong. Like me going there would scare the birds.

This doesn’t have anything to do with protecting the birds, it’s all about admiting guilt. It is easier for the EPA to fine oil companies for a few sparrow deaths than admit their “green” energy policies are a complete failure.

Besides, how can the gestapo fools running the EPA and Fish & Wildlife Service fine someone who gets their money from the gooberment? Wouldn’t that mena they would have to give the money back to us taxpayers since it was ours in the first place?

Just more proof, if any was needed, of the uselessness and political bias of the EPA and other federal agencies. It’s just Chicago crony politics on a national basis. But what really angers me is the silence of all the greens and and, especially, bird lovers.
