Save the Bats!

Posted on | December 23, 2010 | 10 Comments

They’re not cute and cuddly like baby seals, but we don’t want to kill them, do we?

Conservationists filed suit Wednesday to block the start of Maryland’s first industrial wind project, contending the turbines built atop the state’s highest mountain in Garrett County threaten to harm federally protected rare bats.
Making good on a threat issued months ago, two groups — Save Western Maryland and the Maryland Conservation Council — and two individuals brought suit against Constellation Energy in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, contending that its wind turbines will “almost certainly” injure or kill Indiana bats, which are so few in number that they are legally protected under the federal Endangered Species Act.

Wind energy is a waste of time and money, made economically feasible only by government “green energy” subsidies.

So for the first time in my life, I’m grateful for the Endangered Species Act. Anything that prevents tax-mooching swindlers from building more of these stupid wind-farm projects is OK with me.
