Let The Market Save Them

Well, those boys in the White House have come up with yet another doozy. Here we learn that in order to better able to protect the endgangered species of the world, the current administration intends on loosening current regulations that govern protecting endangered species. As outrageous as it seems, the White House has determined that the government can't protect these animals and wants to put in place a program to allow the free market to take over - because as we all know, the free market can solve everything. Every problem on Earth, including the actual Earth saving part the Earth should be put in the hands of free market systems. And I am sure some governmental contractor has already been identified to take action, for a price. I just don't get it. I don't see how we stop poaching by allowing poaching. I don't see how we save monkeys by exporting monkeys and I don't see how we preserve elephants and their habitat by allowing ivory tusk importation. George W. Bush and the current administration are bad news for the environment. Just bad news every day.
