The London Free Press? I'm sure the comments section will be full of rational, well thought out opinions, posted by highly informed and impartial adults.

Who gives a fark? I thought people are supposed to be more concerned with their lives than to give a shiat about stuff like this?

MaudlinMutantMollusk: You know, if we all just sacrifice a little we can pull together to beat the current problems of not enough energy. Monolithic is doing it's part by killing most of the birds that nest around our beautiful oil refineries. Birds eat up a lot of food, and as everyone knows food takes energy to grow and prepare... so the fewer birds there are, the less energy we'll be wasting.


Couldn't we just do the same thing to vegans? They consume more food than birds and are much more annoying.

Delawheredad: Oil -- bad pollutes kills the climate.
Hydro --bad diverts rivers impairs salmon and other fish
Wind --bad chews up birds
Nuclear -- just no no no!
Solar -- uses silicon which endangers our beaches

So its back to the caves for the lot of us!

fusillade762: Well, it's not their national bird.


a sore point with Conservative energy critic and Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli.

That's a real place?


Yes indeed. My mother is from that region. We spent part of the summer there as well...fishin'.

Pray 4 Mojo: So if wind... nuclear... coal... hydro... etc... are bad, is solar the only thing left?

Or is there tree hugger opposition to that too?


Yes because you are enslaving the sun and slavery is illegal and immoral. Good intentions are the cleanest renewable resource we have.

People first, birds second I say. Plus they did set up new nests and timed the whole thing correctly. So really, it's not that big of a deal.

Kibbler: Subby, next please explain how all the world's problems grew out of banning DDT.


Not subby, but all the world's problems caused by eagles did grow out of banning DDT.

Shadow Blasko: Worldwalker: Warblers are tiny and cranes look kind of doofus, but rarity should be what matters, not looks.

But what if both apply?

Geothermal tends to also attract those two as well:

"Onlookers claim no one with Ontario's Natural Resources Ministry, which approved the nest removal, even bothered to show up to insure it was done properly. "

Is there some sort of ceremony to be observed?
