  •  DOI has done a lot re the tortoise (8+ / 0-)

    there are large zones deemed too environmentally sensitive, and developers need to buy offsetting habitat. They've redrawn the "off limits" zones to make them bigger.

    But yes, there is a problem when one-issue folk are given the Los Angeles Times as a mouthpiece and there is no corresponding big picture coverage.

    Congress can't redo the laws of physics. Do the math. @RL_Miller

    •  DOI did exactly zero on the project I was working (1+ / 0-)

      on in the 90s (through 97), but USGS biologists did.

      The problem with USFWS (under DOI) is that sometimes they do okay and sometimes they don't. We're dealing with an issue under their jurisdiction here (arroyo toad) and while their habitat designation was good, it certainly doesn't look like their ultimate defense, under their own laws, will be. We'll see. We and others are prepared to sue if necessary.

      I have learned, over many years, that while there are good people in the agency, there are also bad people. The agency, as you know, has a very checkered history.
