Why is a Washington State Plant Under Fire in Franklin County?
It’s all about a stinky weed, that adds no value to the environment, and is found abundantly across North America. Is this another method of government land grabbing like the Delta Smelt Part 2 is the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard?
Just because the White Bluffs Bladderpod has a localized name… this does not make it special or endangered. Note that from the report
Federal Register 10.26.11 page 50 states
Physaria douglasii ssp.tuplashensis (White Bluffs bladder-pod)-We continue to find that listing this species is warranted, but precluded as of the date of publication of this notice. However, we are working on a proposed listing rule that we expect to publish prior to making the next annual resubmitted petition 12-month finding.
Not only has the government failed to perform proper research, they have failed in general paperwork procedures and notification.
So what does the word ‘endangered’ really mean when applied by the U.S. Government?
