Bush Wants to Change the Endangered Species Act

>> Saturday, August 30, 2008

In his last few months in office, it seems our president wants it to be known that he really doesn't care about the environment at all. In his latest attempt to destroy all things green, he is trying to change the Endangered Species Act of 1973. This act not only allows for the formation of an Endangered Species list, but also requires that recovery plans be drawn in the event of a badly endangered animal and forces the Federal Government to "not authorize" any plans that would hinder the recovery of a species. This last part is the part that our dear Commander-in-Chief wants to change. Scientists are up in arms over this calling the proposal "bad science." So, what, pray tell, do we do? Well, the public comment period ends mid-September, so whatever it is we have to do it fast. Go write letters now. That is what I am doing. That's all I can do... otherwise we can kiss our beautiful endangered species (like our reefs and wild horses) and protected lands goodbye.

Oh no! more bad news. Must write letters! Thanks for the update on the solar cells. So are the bats safer with these cheaper panels?

@sealaura- sorry for all the bad news, but I am gonna go with an "I hope so for the bats" and a "thank you" for writing letters. :oD

Well done you....I am constantly writing letters, to the powers that be, here in the UK......we had a very similar thing happen here a couple of years ago.....unfortunately we lost the battle and now some of our very precious wildlife is vulnerable.....

@ Cheryl- Oh no! I hope someone will turn all of that around again soon. This makes me so angry.
