Is this a news story or an editorial? At first glance it appears to be a news story, using the headline of congressional action, but it seems clear to me that the author is simply backing those views, and not seeking any other opinions on an obviously highly-controversial topic. Not my idea of good journalism in the least.
The author cites the de-listing of other populations as a reason to de-list in Washington. This is ludicrous because the other populations were only de-listed only due to political pressure or direct congressional action. The scientists were not recommending it at all.
And the BS about world populations shows no understanding of the Endangered Species Act, which is set up to protect individual populations when they are sufficiently isloated.
