Not a sign of an expanding economy...

Oil prices fell earlier today after a report yesterday from the Energy Department showed U.S. crude inventories rose 3.7 million barrels last week to 379.5 million, the highest level since 1990.

Things I like to think about? How many trailers of solar panels would a Volt need to tow so it's owner would never need to use gasoline or plug into an electric outlet?.

It's always a happy sign that things are going poorly for O when the sociopathic trolling-for-attention diverts to climate change ... :)

It is called weather by sane people

Yup! The troll doesn't want to discuss the problems in the administration or Obama's war on women, especially the employment of females.

Am I the only one that noticed that as the number of wind generators increases in America the temperature rises and the percentage of autistic children being born increases accordingly?

chartseer..."Greece needs another 5 billion and still wont be able to pay their bills never mind their interest. Greece is like America in that their entitlements exceed their revenues by 50%."....

I think The reason America has lasted this long is because they are owners of the worlds reserve currency.

I thought it was that greece cannot print the currency it needs as the USA does.

Interior Looks to Expand Permits for Killing Bald Eagles to Accommodate Wind Energy

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a division of the Interior Department, is considering loosening regulations on the killing of bald eagles, the national bird of the United States, to accommodate the development of wind energy sources.

A draft regulation first filed in April would allow businesses to apply for 30-year permits allowing them to kill bald eagles in the course of other legal activities. The length of those permits would be a six-fold increase over the five-year window allowed under current law.

The USFWS explains at FederalRegister.gov:

We have reviewed applications from proponents of renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar power facilities, for programmatic permits to authorize eagle take that may result from both the construction and ongoing operations of renewable energy projects. During our review, it became evident that the 5-year term limit imposed by the 2009 regulations (see 50 CFR 22.26(h)) needed to be extended to better correspond to the timeframe of renewable energy projects.


Current law allows permitting for “programmatic” killing of bald eagles, which “is recurring, is not caused solely by indirect effects, and that occurs over the long term or in a location or locations that cannot be specifically identified.”

The USFWS notes that permits “may authorize lethal take that is incidental to an otherwise lawful activity, such as mortalities caused by collisions with rotating wind turbines.”

According to the regulation, measures will be taken to attempt to minimize bald eagle mortalities, and additional actions may be authorized if mortalities exceed “anticipated” levels. USFWS began investigating numerous bald eagle deaths associated with wind turbines in early 2012.

Without the proper permit, the killing of a bald eagle is a federal crime.
