Obama Celebrates Independence Day by Murdering Bald Eagles

President Obama will celebrate the 4th of July weekend in part by ritually sacrificing majestic bald eagles on the alter of “green energy.” Liberals might call that progress. Real Americans would rightly call it what it is: bird murder. Last week, the Obama administration gave a California wind farm permission to kill bald eagles with impunity for up to 30 years. The birds are supposed to be protected under federal law; without a waiver from the president, killing them would result in six-figure fines and up to 18 months in prison per eagle. The move is just the latest escalation in the administration’s eco-genocide, which biologists estimate is responsible for the horrific death of hundreds of thousands of birds each year. The birds are typically chopped out of the sky in brutal fashion by the enormous and unsightly turbine blades.

Getting Greens Wrong

Review: “A Climate of Crisis: America in the Age of Environmentalism” by Patrick Allitt

Patrick Allitt has written a book no one will like. Neither environmentalists nor those he calls counterenvironmentalists. He’ll be tempted to flatter himself with the tattered response of those criticized from both sides: “I must be doing something right.” He’ll be wrong. The purpose of the book, in Allitt’s words, is “to explain the history of American environmental controversies since World War II and to encourage an optimistic attitude toward the environmental future.” But it reads more like an environmental “he said, she said.” On issue after issue, Allitt presents one side, then the other, making for a seesaw of a read.
