CBD is at it again

Postby tncaver » Jul 13, 2011 12:35 pm

Here we go again. This time the Center For Biological Diversity is hassling the Feds to add more than 700 hundred additional plants and animals to their
list for "protection".

Read the details hear:

Notice the last paragraph in the article which I will repeat here.

"Government officials have said the backlog has been made worse by lawsuits that have distracted the Fish and Wildlife Service from needed scientific reviews and restoration work."

my prediction: the CBD will eventually implode under it's own egotistical, phoney, self-serving weight.
People are waking up to this nonsense and not just cavers.

People should be waking up to this nonsense but frankly I've seen little evidence they are.

They're getting silly. You could argue that every animal/ plant that hasn't adapted to the human world should be listed under the ESA.
