The past 8 years have been a heartbreak to me - solely as an environmentalist. I was crushed during Bush's first day of office when he overturned an important Clean Water Act provision that Clinton had put in place before he left office. I think the current administration has gone downhill from there.

Wow! That's saying it (still reading your comments on leaving a comment)

Here from BC - like your new blog very interesting.

The truth - great pick for endangered. I read a lot of scientific journals and it's amazing the number that focus on a single conclusion (when there are multiple), forget to mention the study is funded by a vested interest group such as a pharmaceutical company or bury the fact that the study was on fruit flies, when heck there is just a wee chance that fruit flies have a different biology to humans. Similar is not the same!

Okay rant over

@karmyn-Yes, I think he has managed to undo everything gained in the past 20 years. I try not to get depressed, but its like they are giving the entire planet away.

@talia-This is the reduced version. I had a much longer version that I just cut down. LOL Feel free to use.
