I'm having problems with this. I had this discussion with a representative from SACE earlier this week about Clean Line, the proposal to have wind farms in Oklahoma send electrical power through TN to Florida so they can run air conditioners at the beach.

Bald eagles, the U.S. national symbol, dwindled to a low of just over 400 nesting pairs in the lower 48 states in 1963, and the species was one of the first to receive protection under the precursor to the Endangered Species Act in 1967. However, in 2007, it was removed from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants list, and some 143,000 bald eagles and 40,000 golden eagles are said to exist today.

The administration's proposal would allow wind power companies and other power providers to kill or injure 4,200 bald eagles a year without penalty. Golden eagles could be killed only if companies take steps — such as retrofitting power poles to reduce the risk of electrocution — to minimize the losses.
