One Response to Discovery of 408 New Mammal Species Gives Insight Into Our Dependency on the "Economy of Nature"

    About the Economy of Nature – the Idaho Reopublicans want to wipe it off the face of the earth.
    Anyone who may have been wondering about WHO might fill Larry Craig’s role (shoes – uh oh) as the most vile and despicable lying Idaho official – meet Jim Risch.

    Here is an article featuring Risch lying about wildlife “Pelosi’s mouse”– to the gullibleIdaho Legislature — the fracas over this seems to be designed to downplay the value of any critters.

    Of course, the esteemed ID delegation would NEVER lie about wolves, especially if they are de-listed, now would they?
