Windpower?

“[Windpower] slaughters eagles by the dozen, uses tons of fossil fuels every day, emits a greenhouse gas that’s like CO2 on steroids, can’t do the job it’s made for, costs taxpayers exorbitant fees, and makes the federal government look mentally ill for giving it outrageous subsidies.”

…”Nationwide, the wind industry kills thousands of golden eagles without prosecution,” Johns said, “while any other American citizen even possessing eagle parts such as feathers would face huge fines and prison time.”

“Huge is right: violate either the Migratory Bird Treaty Act or the Eagle Protection Act and you could get a fine up to $250,000 or two years imprisonment.”

“Not a single wind farm operator has yet been prosecuted for killing birds, yet in 2009 ExxonMobil got whacked with a $600,000 fine for killing 85 birds that flew into uncovered tanks on its property.”
