This must be a textbook example of cognitive dissonance, that is when diametrically-opposed ideas coexist in the same mind. To wit, self-described Progressives cherish birds and green energy, yet wind turbines kill nearly a half-million avian souls each year. Even our national symbol isn’t safe. The Pine Tree Wind Project in Los Angeles has killed NINE golden eagles since 2009 yet the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has not seen fit to indict them. I’m guessing that all USFWS’s prosecutors are busy indicting North Dakota’s Bakken Oil Field for the death of ONE Says Phoebe, a bird described by Wikipedia as common to the region.
