Windmills chopping up birds, leveraging a lizard and organics makes you sick

“nationwide, wind farms kill an estimated 440,000 birds a year — and again, because that estimate is based on counts of the bodies of shredded birds, the estimate is very likely too low. But amazingly, not one wind farm operator has been sued by the gazillion federal agencies that supposedly enforce laws such as the Endangered Species Act and the Migratory Bird Act.”

“This five-inch-long lizard, supposedly dying out, has a habitat that stretches across southeastern New Mexico and west central Texas, smack-dab in the middle of the longest-exploited and most productive oil field in America, the Permian Basin field. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is trying to get this lowly lizard listed as an endangered species, claiming that oil and gas development is ruining the lizard’s habitat. By the way, nobody knows the size of this repellant reptile’s population to begin with, which raises the question of how exactly we know that it is endangered.”

“The third story reports some interesting news about the new and virulent strain of E. coli that has poisoned people all over Europe, killing thirty-five already. It turns out that the source of the contamination lies in Germany, despite early efforts by the German government to put the blame on Spanish cucumbers. In fact, in the absolute acme of irony, the source of the new bug was…an ‘organic’ farm!”
