Extreme Environmental Legal Double Standard Shown in Graphic Detail


MJ PERRY AT CARPE DIEM HAS A VERY DISTURBING POST TODAY SHOWING AGAIN that politicians and regulators----the incumbant powers-that-be---pick winners and losers in industry that has nothing whatsoever to do with reality. Here we read oil companies are gettting fined for crimes and misdemeanors that green companies, like wind and solar, literally are getting by with murder for---in much higher numbers. Read the entire piece and weep. An excerpt:

As Jack Dini wrote in the Canada Free Press: "When it comes to protecting America’s wildlife, environmental organizations and federal law enforcement officials have a double standard: one that’s enforced against oil, gas and electric utility sectors, and another that exempts wind and solar power from prosecution despite evidence of a multitude of violations."

Also from today's WSJ: "It's hard to believe anyone deserves prosecution for incidental bird deaths, but it is a blatant injustice to indict companies whose oil operations may kill a few birds while giving a pass to wind operators that kill them by the thousands. The Administration can loathe carbon fuels all it wants, but that loathing doesn't justify selective and foolish prosecution."
