ESA Today

By Rich Kozlovich

In the future we will be dealing with the Endangered Species Act much more.  As you go over these articles I would like for everyone to stop and think how much this all costs, is going to cost, how much is ESA really needed and.......because of how many species are under consideration, along with the way they will break species down into subspecies when it suits their goals.  Then please start to ask yourself what their goals are.  Then ask yourself it this is what Congress really intended? 

Is it really about saving species or is it something far more nefarious.  Please read my articles linked below in order to see how far reaching it can be when a species is declared 'endangered', and then you will know why it is called 'old faithful' by the green movement.  Remember, ESA issues over bugs was how the greenies stopped the Canadian Keystone XL pipeline.
