GR:  This beautifully illustrated blog post explains how climate change threatens these species.  The U. S. Department of the Interior provide the post.  This is the agency that:

  • approves fossil-fuel exploration and extraction,
  • approves excessive livestock grazing that removes forage needed by wildlife, spreads weeds, and increases fires,
  • approves power production and transmission projects that benefit humans and harm wildlife,
  • promotes recreation and tourism often at the expense of wildlife habitat, and
  • decides which species get to be protected under the Endangered Species Act.

All of this indicates that resource management cannot be sustainable in a political system like that of the U. S.
