While y'all are up there, see if you can find some North American Burying Beetles.  Might be helpful ;-).  They are there, and you only need to find one.

Document one and no development.  Hurry before they do the old midnight triacide trick.

I understand USFW is interested as to whether or not there is ABB present in the area but they won’t hold up private development for a study.  Apparently they only do that for politically expedient things like Keystone XL.

Yes, you were...part of the entire environmental topic.

Sad that so many can't catch that one....

I'm surprised someone hasn't proposed just leveling the mountain for another refinery, since all that oil will be coming to Oklahoma...
