Massive salmon habitat cuts proposed post #1  quote:



Massive salmon habitat cuts proposed
quote:
The Bush administration Tuesday proposed large cuts in federally designated areas in the Northwest and California meant to aid the recovery of threatened or endangered salmon. Protection would focus instead on rivers where the fish now thrive.
[...]
Under the federal plan, critical habitats would be cut by more than 80 percent in the Northwest and 50 percent in California -- and more cuts might be ordered based on public comments over the next six months, said Bob Lohn, northwest regional administrator for NOAA Fisheries, the federal agency responsible for saving salmon from extinction.


More good news on environmental policy from the Bush administration is always welcomed.

U.S. Rules Out Dam Removal for Salmon Recovery
quote:
A Bush administration decision to eliminate the possibility of removing dams to save endangered U.S. Pacific Northwest salmon species is a huge blow to protection efforts, an environmental group said on Wednesday.
[...]
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration on Tuesday found that hydroelectric dams on the Columbia and Lower Snake rivers were built before a dozen salmon species were listed under the Endangered Species Act of 1973.

Therefore they are "pre-existing conditions" and part of the basic environment.


Pre-existing conditions and part of the basic environment!? How about the CAUSE of the endangerment of the species by impenetrably barricading the migration path of the fish! Duhhhhhhhhhh........
