Every Species Everywhere is Now Officially Endangered

If you thought that environmentalists had managed to kill American industry before, they’re just getting started. Watching what they’ve done until now is like seeing the muzzle flash. You don’t really understand the impact, until the bullet hits you.

Now the bullet has gotten a lot closer.

What the left does well is build up individual legal structures that don’t seem too unreasonable individually and then brings them together for devastating effect. Like endangered species protections and global warming. Only when they come together do you really see how hard the bullet is going to hit.

Wolverines, one of the West’s most elusive high-country predators may soon find a place on the endangered species list because of climate threats to the deep snow and frigid temperatures they need to survive.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Friday a proposal to list wolverines as a threatened species. It also proposed establishing a nonessential population area for any wolverines reintroduced into portions of the southern Rocky Mountains.

“This is an unusual case in which the species is actually doing pretty well right now … But now we have information that shows wolverine habitat is likely to be directly impacted by climate change.”

Studies show wolverine habitat will reduce significantly over the next 30 years and very significantly over the next 70 or 80 years.

It’s not an unusual case, it’s a test case. Listing the wolverines as a threatened species won’t hurt too many people, so it won’t be fought too vigorously. But a precedent will have been established.

Since Global Warming Scammers claim that rising temperatures will eventually impact every species, there is a pretext for placing every species on the endangered list and extending protection to them. The resulting land and power grab will be truly massive and will dismantle what’s left of manufacturing and industry in America, it will also go after ranching and farming in a big way.

It used to be that a threatened species’ status had to be linked to numbers in some way. Global Warming scammers began eroding this process by insisting that the status of a species was linked to their bogus projections of rising global temperatures.

Fish and Wildlife’s own press release reveals the insanity of their “Endangered Wolverine” proposal.

Research indicates that wolverines either did not exist as established populations or were extirpated prior to settlement and to the compilation of historical records in the Great Lakes region, possibly due to climate changes that occurred through the 1800s and 1900s.  The widely scattered records from this region are consistent with dispersing individuals from a Canadian population that receded north early in the 1800s.  The possibility that wolverines existed as established populations prior to the onset of trapping in this area cannot be ruled out, but we have no evidence that they did.  No evidence in the historical records suggests that wolverines were ever present as established populations in the Great Plains, Midwest, or Northeast.

Wolverines are actually an invasive species moving out of Canada within recent history. Fish and Wildlife has to postulate some form of Global Warming in the 1800s that killed them off.

The nomination of Daniel M. Ashe, who formerly pushed Ecoscam in his role as a Science Advisor, to head Fish and Wildlife was a coup meant to allow the Global Warmers to set the agenda. Moves like these have no scientific credibility, but are meant to establish a pattern of interference that will allow them veto power over any business in the country.

    Of, By and For Career Parasites.
    So much fun to pretend to work than to really work.
    And even more fun when they convince themselves and their colleagues how indespensible they all are when the lot of them couldn't get a job running a cash register .
    Out of control thieves who think like Dems combined with Repubes are too cowed and conformed to attack or cut.
    What a giant scam for the express benefit of career parasites.

    and with the current crop in the White House, crap like this is only going to get worse real fast in the next 4 years.

    Maybe we should list Common Sense on the list of endangered species.. or is it too late to save that?

    "Studies show wolverine habitat will reduce significantly over the next 30 years and very significantly over the next 70 or 80 years."

    My studies show that leftists lie so much that they can't be trusted to get anything correct.

    Wolverines are awesome by the way, but I don't trust leftists to do anything good.

    The environmentalists were pulling this idiocy over bears in British Columbia. They managed to get the BC bear hunt stopped for some time while they were hollering about Grizzly Bears being endangered. The problem: The populations were actually growing.

    Fortunately, people were getting tired of environmentalist idiocy and the hunt was re-instituted shortly after.

    A good book that will give you a good look at the mindset of the time is James Gary Shelton's book "Bear Attacks: The Deadly Truth". This book not only tells of bear attacks in fairly brutal detail, but it also goes slightly into the attitudes of environmentalists at the time as well.

    Just a Canadian watching America over the last 50 years….. was proud of the USA. WAS… a sad word because we watched as you stopped Hitler and his Holocaust, stopped Communism in it's tracks. America's essense shouted, FREEDOM to the world, to no avail. The beaten Nazis and Commies noticed fanatical ISLAM and had a ah! hah moment… here was something to use against America,(remember Putin visiting Iran), N. Korean's helping the nuke effort in Iran. AMERICA- WAKE THE HELL UP !!! How can you let the left do this to your great country???

    >>>Wolverines, one of the West’s most elusive high-country predators may soon find a place on the endangered species list because of climate threats to the deep snow and frigid temperatures they need to survive.

    I thought the main tenet of Darwin’s survival of the fittest states that the evolutionary process steps in to “save” these ? WHy can’t they just evolve if they were meant to survive?
    Funny how that age old rule tightly enforced by Fish and Wildlife that stated that while fishing you have to throw the littles back, has resulted in fish evolving into smaller adult status, as well as large adults not spawning, thereby also decreasing populations. It only took about a hundred years for them to come to this conclusion, but i Doubt there will be much fanfare or sensationalization of this, as it suits their purpose to blame decreasing fish pops on humans- pollution, environmental encroachment, etc.

    As for decreasing habitat, the federal government has been snapping up record numbers of acres lately. I’m sure with the wildfires out west this past year there will be more acreage buyouts as people must be fed up with the lack of response when danger is posed to their “wildlife abodes”. (Agenda 21)

    >>>Wolverines are actually an invasive species moving out of Canada within recent history.
    If you read THE LOCAVORE HUNTER blog or Eating Aliens: ONe Man’s adventure Hunting INvasive Species (Book) you will see that the federal government (as well as some state govts) have no desire to control or inhibit the invasion of species that devour native species and change entire ecosystems, and cause financial hardship to human residents. In fact, they actually encourage it ,with extremely prohibitive hunting regs.
