In the past century, DDT was used to successfully kill pests and malaria-carrying mosquitoes. This use ended when Rachael Carson lied about how it would hurt poor wittle birds, which led to its ban in the United States and thereafter in Africa. As a result, tens of millions of people died.
Despite it was a complete lie, the well being of some birds were considered to be worth more than tens of millions of people (mostly sub-Saharan Africans).
So, what could possibly worth so much as to legalize the slaughter of birds?
To put it bluntly, the pockets of “Green Energy” cronies.
Licenses to kill bald eagles, which would result in a $250,000 fine and jail time for regular people, are being handed out to the administrations favorite cronies:
“A California wind farm will become the first in the U.S. to avoid prosecution if eagles are injured or die when they run into the giant turning blades, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Thursday.
“Under President Barack Obama, wind energy has exploded as a pollution-free energy source that can help reduce the greenhouse gases blamed for global warming. But it is not without opposition from wildlife advocates.
“The Shiloh IV Wind Project LLC will receive a special permit allowing up to five golden eagles to be accidentally killed, harmed or disturbed over five years. Previously, such a violation could potentially draw criminal charges and discourage private investment in wind farms, which are known for catching birds in their rotors.”
In essence, Obama’s crony pals are more important than tens of millions of African children.
Who’s the racist now?
