The citizens of our nation have gone through a lengthy democratic decision-making process with regard to the Mexican gray wolf, a process that actually started with the passage of the Endangered Species Act... The overwhelming majority supports the lobo's recovery...The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is legally and morally bound to carry out our decision. And, in the face of the possible second extinction of the Mexican wolf in the wild, I am losing patience, and I am outraged.I'm outraged too. And I'm outraged that more species are going extinct every day. And will continue to do so until we systematically address the excessive lifestyles of the developed world that rides on the back of the developing one. No, really. The wolf can't come back unless we all agree that there need to be limits on what we take from the planet. (Twice.)
Anyone else think that the Fish and Wildlife Service should be renamed? It sure the heck isn't serving polar bears. I suspect that they will have to list polar bears. But they won't designate critical habitat, and they won't provide any meaningful links to the causative factors imperiling the species. Instead, they'll spin their over sized wheels and allow more oil and gas to be plundered from the Arctic, put into combustion engines, and spewed into the air, thus completed the closed loop of Arctic devastation.
Don't mind me. I'm just not getting enough anti-depressants in my drinking water. Better go get myself a glass.
