Just 150 eagles since 2012? How dumb do they think we are?
Actually this amount of wind energy eagles is the tip of the iceberg and this story is really one more calculated green energy/Interior Department fraud on the public.
For several decades articles about wind turbine mortality have been repeating this falsehood as if blades are not moving fast and it is their fault...... "The birds are killed when they fly into the blades of wind turbines."
This is not true. An eagle that flies into a blade is not cut in half or has a wing taken off. Birds and eagles are killed when massive blades with tip speeds 150-300 mph smash them out of the sky.
Based upon wind energy expansion over the last few years, the Denver Repository now receives over 3000 dead eagles a year and the biggest contributor... America's "green" energy wind turbines. They've been killing thousands and since the Clinton Administration, this ongoing slaughter has been conveniently considered, a business trade secret.
For several decades articles about wind turbine mortality have been saying this falsehood....... "The birds are killed when they fly into the blades of wind turbines."
Like it is their fault. This is not true. Birds and eagles are killed when massive blades with tip speeds 150-300 mph smash them out of the sky.
These Green energy shysters are getting away with murder. They only paid fines on about 1% of the eagles being killed by this industry since 2012.
As one USFWS agent told me when I wanted some regional wind energy kill numbers.........
I checked with our repository and learned that they don't keep detailed records of where the eagles they receive come from."
I still have this original email saved with all the headers. But how disgustingly corrupt can an agency get. Eagle carcasses are pouring in from wind farms and they refuse to keep records.
People that partner up with this industry and sign wind energy lease contracts are also silenced. Wind energy leaseholders are required to dispose of carcasses and never talk about it. These nondisclosure contracts demand that they can do absolutely nothing about eagles being killed because that can do nothing that will interfere with profits.
If federal prosecutors really did want to check into all these green energy eagle kills, or keep tabs on this ongoing eagle slaughter, a look at FedEx records would give investigators a good idea of their origin, the millions paid out for overnight shipping and weight of crates that would indicate total numbers coming into the repository. Surveillance on the Repository site in Denver would also clue investigators in on the number of Fed Ex shipments coming in.
Another way for prosecutors to get to the truth about green energy's eagle carnage, is to start intervening leaseholders. I know of one case where a dead bald eagle was found near a turbine and it was reported by someone that hadn’t signed the lease. When agents arrived at the property the eagle was nowhere to be seen because the leaseholder had already disposed of it.
Until any of this takes this place, consider anything to do with wind turbine mortality to be nothing but green energy and government collusion.
I found this information on the National Eagle Repository.
The Eagle Repository is a one of a kind facility, operated and managed by the Office of Law Enforcement, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The main purpose is to receive, evaluate, store and distribute dead golden and bald eagles, parts and feathers to Native Americans and Alaska Natives who are enrolled members of federally recognized tribes throughout the United States. Also, to develop and provide educational programs regarding wildlife trade, wildlife laws, raptors and the Native American eagle feather program.

There are no words to describe what atrocities the wind industry and political cronyism and corruption have burdened our wildlife and our environment with. Jim Wiegand, you are a true warrior. Thank you for fighting for and defending those who cannot speak for themselves.
