    The wind industry has virtually no regulations or FWS oversight. These latest incidental permits are just more proof of a decades old pattern exhibited by the FWS of posturing for the public and not getting in the way of this...

    With help from their friends in the State and Federal Government, Pattern sold an illusion and walked away with a pile of taxpayer dollars. For many corporations, getting access to this pot is all they live for....

    MJ's Natural gas argument /comment is severely flawed. This same deflective logic has been widely used by the wind industry for years to sucker the ignorant. It was even used on Congress. But for those of us that know what...

    As the article points out on the map, the Mother Lode for wind power potential is clearly in that big black spot in the High Plains. The wind industry has been very busy exploiting this wind resource over the last...

    Excellent Article. Everyone should also read the article below because this tragic scenario plays out everyday all over the world but witnesses are rarely present. It is an article about the wind turbine's path of extinction I keep writing about..........Birdwatchers...
  • Comment
    Wind turbines slaughter every species that can fly and because of the wind industry's turbines, we are on a terrible path of species extinction. This is exactly why I am exposing the USFWS for what they are, 100% corrupt. They...

    Excellent article. Keep them coming because only through more stories like this can people get up to speed and fight this insidious industry. Lately I have been trying to get the word out how ridiculous and corrupt the FWS "...

    I will also add these terrible wind industry facts. Many condors (1985) and whooping cranes are known to have disappeared soon after wind turbines were placed in their habitats. The 2013 free flying whooping crane population should now be over...
  • Comment
    I will add this for Kelly Fuller at the American Bird Conservancy. This is a fact, many condors and whooping cranes are known to have disappeared. The 2013 free flying whooping crane population should be over 450 but it has...
  • Comment
    The wind industry and supporters love to bring up cats to divert attention from their carnage The irony in all of this is that if any cats do happen to live around wind turbines, they are being fed by the...

    Lets make this very clear. These are permits to Kill eagles, thousands of them. It is long overdue for some accountability for any wind industry or FWS representative that attempts to defraud communities with bogus information. Let's look at how...

    "With approval from the Fish and Wildlife Service"...........The wind industry has been able to conceal most of its turbine mortality for decades with bogus mortality studies. "With approval from the Fish and Wildlife Service"...........The wind industry has been able to...
  • Comment
    Birds hit by the turbine blades travel much further. That is why the wind industry and FWS have mortality studies that only look in a small areas around these turbines. The Smola wind farm in Norway has these same Siemens...
  • Comment
    People have to face the fact that Environmental groups the Sierra Club and Audubon no longer have much to do with their founders. The have charitable status but they are really a political enterprise marketing the environment to the public....
  • Comment
    For the wind industry rules and laws mean nothing. About the only law I have seen them obey is the unwritten law that says "don't get caught". The early mortality studies conducted at Altamont Pass only helped the industry shore...
  • Comment
    When the feds weigh in, is when things can get really ugly. They have been instructed to not get in the ways of these renewable energy businesses. Submitting formal letters of concern means nothing and it is just pretending on...
  • Comment
    Just remember wind power works great if you are being paid to sell it. Wind power works great if politicians can help the industry food chain steal tax credits from taxpayers and then turn around and reward them again with...
  • Comment
    My experience with the wind industry is that nothing is as it seems and every statement has to be scrutinized. No one should ever ignore the fact that taking billions and billions in profits off the taxpayer's backs, is a...
  • Comment
    I recently reviewed a bogus mortality study handed to me by some very concerned citizens. Looking at the factors and flaws of the study, in my opinion there was a kill rate of 500-600 fatalities per MW per Year. The...
  • Comment
    The wind industry and FWS are quick to point out how dangerous power lines are to all birds including eagles and condors. But there really is a huge difference between the killing power of turbine blades and power lines, unless...
  • Comment
    I looked over SB 516. Taking a few hawk nests off of power poles has nothing to do with their real intentions. Corporations want to give themselves a special waiver so they can continue their onslaught against the wildlife impacted...
  • Comment
    Excellent Article. People need to realize the FWS is NOT what they appear to be. If it were up to me most of the upper levels of this agency would be immediately fired, have their names out there for everybody...
  • Comment
    Is Governor Brown really looking out for our best interests or is he peddling turbines we do not need? Here is another sobering look at the marketing of green energy and why we need a moratorium on all wind projects...

    I wonder if Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is going to answer the letter (below) sent by to him by Whooping Crane Conservation Association (WCCA) . Or will the Dept. of Interior dodge this problem.That would not be a good idea...

    The people at MIT are right on the money. We have to change course and valuable time and resources are being wasted. They know wind energy is not going to save anyone or have any impact on climate change. It...
  • Comment
    I should also comment on this statement from the AWEA "based on a recent analysis of publicly available studies conducted at over 100 wind farms, it is estimated that less than 150,000 birds annually are killed by wind power generation."...
  • Comment
    Readers can learn from their neighbors to the north about the wind industry. After a wind energy company destroyed a Bald eagle nest a few days ago, people in Canada are wondering how the Ministry of Natural Resources could allow...
  • Comment
    The only thing that can save the wind industry is corruption. I say this because over the last several years enough evidence has surfaced against the wind industry to shut down every one of their projects. At the very least...
  • Comment
    There never should have been any tax credits for this industry. I happen to know the secret California Condor deal was cut (they call it mitigation) between the wind industry, the USFWS , the CA DFG, and several conservation groups...
