I endorse this satirical (I think?) idea from the R Street Institute:
[T]he Making Environmental Offsets for Windpower Act proposes the U.S. Department of Energy require — both as a pre-condition for the citing of new wind turbines, and on an ongoing annual basis — that turbine operators demonstrate they are in compliance with a new offset program designed to remove from the natural environment an even greater threat to birds: namely, free-ranging domestic cats.
According to a September 2012 paper published in Nature Communications by researchers from FWS and the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute’s Migratory Bird Center, free-ranging domestic cats kill 1.4 to 3.7 billion birds annually, with a mid-range estimate of 2.55 billion birds killed by American cats each year.
Given the Humane Society’s estimate that there are 86.4 million cats in the United States, as well as the American Wind Energy Association’s estimate of 45,000 U.S. wind turbines, an average American cat will kill about 30 birds each year, compared to nine birds each year for the average wind turbine.
“The MEOW Act would require wind turbine operators every year to show that they have destroyed at least one feline for every three turbines in active operation,” Lehmann said. “This would mitigate the negative wildlife consequences of wind power in a way that should result in no net loss of birds.”
Operators who demonstrate they have exceeded the minimum required feline destructions would also be entitled to offset permits they could sell to others, under a system R Street calls “cat-and-trade.”
I'm now adding cats to the list of dangerous animals that must be stopped. Remember, guys: deer, wild pigs, raccoons, and cats are terrible and must not be allowed to terrorize us all. End their reign of terror.
