Thanks. Unfortunately, when I try to access the appeal email from the article, it says "This Connection is Untrusted" on Firefox, and "There is a problem with this website's security certificate" on IE8. Perhaps someone is trying to sabotage this effort?

Yes, Frank, the site still has problems. Much as I would like to sign on, McAfee says the site access is "not recommended" -- I paid good money for the excellent McAfee firewall and they have never led me astray, and I cannot afford a virus.

And being pretty private I am leery of Facebook and Twitter. Too many horror stories.

Can the sponsor get a safe connection up and running?:

WildEarth Guardians’ believes the tale of Moby Dick illuminates humanity’s tendency to destroy the native animals and plants in our midst. Scientists warn that human-caused extinction rates are at least 1,000 times the natural rate of species loss. The rapidly increasing global human population is accelerating this crisis. The native animals and plants going extinct play important roles in their ecosystems and signal when resources vital to human survival – including clean air, water, and healthy soils – are becoming fast depleted.

“Exploitation of nature is taking its toll, with skyrocketing species extinction rates across the planet. Full enforcement of the Endangered Species Act can help turn humanity away from the foolish path of Captain Ahab,” stated Rosmarino.
