Great Bay Wind Project: May Be Biggest Man-Made Killer of Bald Eagles Ever

I hate writing about these stories, but people should know whats going on.

“(Washington, D.C., March 28, 2014) American Bird Conservancy, one of the nation’s leading bird conservation organizations, is calling for a detailed reanalysis of a proposed wind power facility in Maryland that could prove to be the single most deadly project for bald eagles in the Americas. The Great Bay Wind Project is proposed to be located in Somerset County, Maryland, near the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. “

The sub headline is: “Proposed Project Outside Washington, DC May Be Biggest Man-Made Killer of Bald Eagles Ever”

Shouldn’t it be: “Washington, DC May Be Biggest Man-Made Killer of Bald Eagles Ever

Wind Farms have a license to kill.

  1. I wish someone would tell Gov. O’Malley that he botched the rollout of the Maryland version of Obamacare so badly his chances of a successful run for president is not virtually nil. The sooner he understands that, the less pandering he’ll have to do to the environmental lobby and he’ll do the less damage to the state’s economy and environment.

  2. DDT nearly wiped out the Bald Eagle.

    • When?

      DDT probably saved 100 million people from dying of malaria.
