It's not about the science

A Scienceinsider piece reviews a new article in Bioscience on how the USFWS ignores scientific advice when making critical habitat designations. The commentary on the article by a number of authors shows clearly how ecologists are used to acting as "stealth issue advocates". As the statement from the USFWS indicates, it isn't about the science in the end. Sorry folks.
