King5 reports on a Western Washington renewable energy project that was cancelled by the environmental impact to an endangered bird.
And, the threat to the seabird occurs once every two years.
Energy Northwest says the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service imposed "untenable" restrictions on the wind farm because studies showed one bird could have been harmed every two years.
I am sure there is some environmentalist who wants no harm to occur due to a renewable energy project feels like this is a win. But, I think the real winner is the bureaucracy.
A bureaucracy is an organization of non-elected officials of a governmental or organization who implement the rules, laws, and functions of their institution, and may be[weasel words] characterized by officialism and red tape.
