Quite the Hypocrisy, wouldn't you say...

"... seven North Dakota oil companies recently charged in federal court with the deaths of 28 migratory birds.The birds allegedly landed in oil waste pits in western North Dakota last spring; the maximum penalty for each charge under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act is six months in prison and a $15,000 fine, the AP said."

"... wind-power companies are responsible for more than 400,000 bird deaths annually, and not one has faced a single charge?"

Wind is "green" while oil is not.
Different rules for each player.

You know that is how the game is played and it's not just the energy sector either.
The dice are loaded, the deck is stacked before the game even gets underway.

The partisan hypocrisy never stops now. It's sickening.
