It’s sort of addictive.

Amy Oliver Cooke, Independence Institute Executive VP and Director of the Energy Policy Center, sent this on the “Greed Energy” bird kill game:

“Our intent is to show that there is no such thing as a free energy source and do so in a way that is both entertaining and educational. While the game is fun, it also provides facts that highlight the deadly consequences of preferred energy sources and the dangers they pose to our eco-system.”

Michael Sandoval, Investigative Reporter and Energy Policy Analyst, added:

“We’ve combined public policy, pop culture, and playability into a game that focuses on energy tradeoffs–wind energy is no exception. There are real consequences for migratory birds and bats from government policies that have picked wind as an energy “winner.” These are not merely angry birds flapping in the wind–wind turbines endanger vulnerable birds already protected by Federal law and threaten ecosystems.”

Founded in 1985, the Independence Institute is a non-partisan, non-profit free market think tank that educates citizens, legislators and opinion makers about public policies that enhance personal and economic freedom.
