The tree huggers have killed for for the sake of fossil fuel. Yes we can clearly blame the nut and berry crowd for the murder of many birds including the symbol of this great nation, the Bald Eagle.
The problem here is that a company that is only bowing to government pressure is having to pay the the price. This needs to go right back to the nut & berry / tree hugger crowd. Since they are th ones that cried and screamed to force these companies to adopt this type of loosing operation the organizations that lobbied Washington should be paying this fine and no one else.
