I’ll have a longer op-ed piece on this later today or tomorrow.

  1. In my opinion this is just the wrong decision. Too many species, in this case the Marbled Murrelet, are disappearing because of this kind of shortsighted decision making. Sometimes I really have to wonder if our ecosystems and their biodiversity need to continue to “die by a death of a thousand cuts” by decisions like this one.
