U.S. to Study Protection for Alaska Loon

Here we go again...

From The Las Vegas Sun:
A petition seeking Endangered Species Act protection for a rare loon that breeds in Alaska's National Petroleum Reserve has been accepted for review by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Conservationists hope an eventual listing of the yellow-billed loon will curb petroleum development in the 23-million acre reserve that covers much of Alaska's western North Slope.
I am sick and tired of this stuff. If the loon cannot survive that is it's problem. Don't all these left wing eco-nuts believe in Darwin's theory of evolution? Well than the loon can adapt or die off, that is darwinism. We need to start developing ALL our resources, both inland and on the continental shelf. We want to get off foreign oil well that would REQUIRE drilling for our own oil reserves and alternatives, not just one or the other.
