What’s the going rate for a species.

What’s a few lousy turtles. Do disasters now just seem worse because we have so many ways to get the word out about what’s happening? Probably. I have to think collateral damage has always occurred in manmade or natural disasters; we just weren’t as aware. It’s the kind of thing the Drill Baby Drill crowd dismisses as the price we have to pay if we want to keep on producing as a nation, yah? I haven’t heard BP’s side of this though, but just hearing the word “endangered” reminds you how sinister it all is. (The turtle described is the Kemp’s Ridley, the most endangered of all turtles.)

I'm just crossing my fingers that the T. Boone's Pickens Pelican isn't harmed.
