Weakening the Endangered Species Act also weakens protections for us all. When wildlife is safe, we're all safer. It's a shame we're now bringing kids onto a barren blighted wasteland of a planet and that they'll never know their natural world as is their birthright. I often think of the amazing sights and sounds that we've never millions of Bison thundering across the plains. It's a travesty how we've overdeveloped and ravaged this once beautiful land. .

We need protection too. We need all the animals ~ we all need water ~ plants need water as well.

Isn't it wonderful to know how are President and govenrment agencies care about the planet and all life on it...NOT! They say the truth hurts and Obama has been systematically showing whee his loyalties lie - on the side of the 1%. Sickening.

Actually, if no one is following the current rules will relaxing them make any difference. The question is why are they not enforcing the current procedures"
