Oh, Goodie! More "Endangered" Critters!!

The Green Goddess always looks backward to an imagined Perfect Time in climate, species, etc.  (And for all these years, you thought that Disney movies were just entertainment.  In fact, they are the books of the Green Bible.)  That Perfect Time didn't exist, of course; but that's what their theology demands, so they invented it.

The Obama administration is taking steps to extend new federal protections to a list of imperiled animals and plants that reads like a manifest for Noah's Ark -- from the melodic golden-winged warbler and slow-moving gopher tortoise, to the slimy American eel and tiny Texas kangaroo rat.

...With a Friday deadline to act on more than 700 pending cases, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service already has issued decisions advancing more than 500 species toward potential new protections under the Endangered Species Act.

You should feel SO much better!
