  •  Will be most interested on her position regarding (5+ / 0-)

    the BDCP. If she supports saving the CA Delta by diverting 9K cfs of the Sacramento River into tunnels under the Delta; she is no environmentalist.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      DOI's only interest in the project is through the ESA, so that I'd be surprised if she were attuned to the political and monied interests pushing for it.  From her standpoint, I'm not sure why she'd be in favor.  I'd be a little surprised if she ever weighs in before confirmation though.

          Salazar's presence there shouldn't be so surprising, in retrospect.  I can certainly imagine that changing if FWS really starts to do its job once Salazar is gone.  I don't see anything about Jewell that suggests she's a pave the earther the way Salazar is.

          I'll join you in the breath holding
