The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is under attack by a group of extreme Republicans, led by CA Rep. Richard Pombo and AK Rep. Don "Open ANWR" Stevens. The one local action that I have seen in California is happening right now in San Mateo Country. There, Supervisor Jerry Hill has introduced a resolution "continuing support of the act and pressing the necessity to keep it intact."
This ia a great idea. It is one that Greens all over the state should be trying with their own County Board of Supervisors or City Councils. It is time that Greens once again stood up for something that makes environmental sense. This is a chance to do just that.
The San Mateo Daily Journal carried the story today. This is just one of a number of areas that cry out for Green leadership...if only we had enough people to do justice to them all.
