September 6, 2014 (San Diego’s East County)--We are writing this letter because we are opposed to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service possibly granting 30-year Bald and Golden Eagle Permits to companies who build wind and solar farms.   NO permits, especially those for 30 years, should be granted to these so-called "green" energy farms.  They harm eagles, didn't study the impacts, and violate Federal laws.
