The article was disappointing on two grounds. First, it was poorly researched, quoting numerous lawyers for farming interests opposed to the Endangered Species Act. Second, it failed to note that most of the growing need for water (as well as virtually all other resources) is closely linked to human population growth that is out of control. We will continue to bulldoze endangered species into oblivion until we come to grips with the cancerous growth of the human population, which underlies nearly all environmental problems that we face.
