Ah, but what about jobs?
Turns out that a government report that 30 wind farms had created 7,000 jobs was just a bit off. The Wall Street Journal checked with each wind farm and found out that the total was a mere 300 jobs.
Final irony: If you kill a golden eagle in California, you’re subject to a $10,000 fine and up to 10 years in jail. But a single wind farm may kill 75 to 100 golden eagles in a year, but receives a pass. Free and clear. No prosecution.
