rubber stamping some more changes to the endangered species act

The Bush administration is trying to rush through a change in the administration of the endangered species act, giving themselves 32 hours to go through over 200,000 comments they've received regarding their proposals to remove greenhouse gases from the list of harmful byproducts of any proposed new construction, and also to no longer accept input from federal biologists in making endangered species related decisions.

This means they intend to read, evaluate and process nearly two comments per second before making the changes (and they will make the changes, even having a comment period at all is only to comply with the letter of the law.)

One more way the Bushies can flip the rest of the world the proverbial finger before leaving office.
