The Predictable Lunacy of Environmentalists, Part 27

Canada's effort to extract oil from tar sands is coming under fire from environmentalists for threats to certain migratory birds. It seems the Connecticut Warbler and the Blackpoll Warbler's habitats are threatened by the activity, which environmentalists hope to stop until an environmental impact study can be conducted. The oil shale industry points to the impact studies already done as sufficient.

The environmental lobby will not be satisfied until we are in the dark and cold eating raw meat and fish. No to oil shale. No to offshore drilling. No to ANWR. No to nuclear power. Good thing we have solar! Whoops...the big solar farms necessary to efficiently gather solar power threaten the habitat of numerous ground birds. Thank God then for wind energy! WHAT MAN, HAVEN'T YOU HEARD OF THE SENSELESS SLAUGHTER OF BIRDS BY WIND PROP STRIKES?

Imagine my surprise when I read about environmentalists fighting against REMOVING oil from sand.
