The Bureau of Land Management today approved a pipeline right-of-way for the Southern Nevada Water Authority's "groundwater development project," setting in motion a project that will severely imperil dozens of species and likely send many to extinction.

Horrible news. How devastating for the state...for the country. With the loss of each species, be it plant or animal, human perception narrows. Sounds like people will be living in a wasteland, venturing outside of Vegas would be very depressing indeed. Why are the decision makers so consistently lousy at doing their jobs???

This has been troubling me since it got the get. It is going to be one of the disasters that people will never get over foran obscene amont among ( rest of message is flying arounc all over times TEN Should of never gotten the Go Ahead from Obama, he could of vetoed this...DID NOT do so, over four years ago I have hope, that hope turned into dispair then after then got the get go I was in SHOCK. Does he know that He is in control and could make a difference that will SOOO impact his girls!!! He, this president, should CARE what goes on, if not for the the USA environment, but his girls. I feel like I talk to a flipping wall when I write letters to this >>>> Fill in the blanks.

I had a Russian patient once. She told me the story of how she used to spend her holidays with her grandmother in an idyllic valley with a stream, green grass and flowers - birds singing, butterflys and dragonflies flying about.
It was a memory of paradise.
Later she went back to Russia and visited her grandmother's village. All of nature was dead. The banks of the stream were of ocher colored clay and had greasy, oily dirt smears all over. There was no green grass, only dust. The children that lived there did not know that things had ever been different.
My patient stood there and cried before turning around and returning to the city.
Once this kind of thing happens, it is very difficult to undo.

Don't know why we can't value life and beauty above profit and greed. It's just pathetic!

Really sad news. What the hell is wrong with Obama? Oh wait, I know, he too is in bed with the corporations. Is there anyone in Washington with common sense and who cares about the environment?

All of Washington is in the back pockets of the big energy companies.

when will humanity learn we have to live within the supplies of our world.....

for those asking why we voted for this administration....there was no realistic choice....the only party that cares about the world would never have won and a GOP admin would have only accelerated things in so many wrong ways......at least this President is willing to think.......the problem is not the people in office its the system and the way our country has allowed money to have power and speech over everything....
