The expert full of Intl

Myron normally calls himself the "director of energy and global warming policy" at the CEI. But last week in a joint letter to Senator "I'll believe every word written in a crackpot science fiction novel" Inhofe signed himself as a Director for Intl Policy, whatever the hell that is.

Most of the hundred odd guys who signed the letter, and the man it was addressed to, know all about violating "private property rights" at gunpoint, particularly if the property in question is in Iraq and has oil under it. But when it comes to their own country, the only good species is an extinct species.

The Endangered Species Act has a long history of evolution and amendments to make it work effectively. In 1982 they brought in what are known as Habitat Conservation Plans which follows from the "No Surprises" regulation, which effectively answered all the whinges that Myron and friends are now levelling at this legislation in 2006.

The facts, of course, don't get in the way of Myron's politics. The letter begins by decrying the impossible burden imposed by the act on "homes, small businesses and family farms". In reality, most of its effect is on large ranches, big businesses and corporate plantations. The data is online, but not one of these signatory organizations felt the pressure to look it up. They know the campaign is only to enrich their already wealthy and unpopular corporate friends, so they knew they had to lie about the beneficiaries. As. Usual.

The letter goes on to outline how landowners avoid "losses in property values... [and] preemptively 'sterilize' their land to keep rare species away. Such preemptive sterilizations benefit no one – least of all the species the ESA was established to protect."

Myron and other signatories, such as Larry Pratt, Executive Director Gun Owners of America, one would presume would rather that such 'sterilizations' were legal rather than illegal, because it is not important that the consequences of the extinction of a species are effective for the next hundred thousand years; they'd prefer to get drunk and go on a hunting spree.

But that's fine. God created the world for us to rape like an Abu Ghraib whore. Thank you God for your kindness.
