Federal wildlife officials took the unprecedented step Friday of telling private companies that they will not be prosecuted for inadvertently harassing or even killing endangered California condors.

In a decision swiftly condemned by conservationists and wildlife advocates, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said operators of Terra-Gen Power's wind farm in the Tehachapi Mountains will not be prosecuted if their turbines accidentally kill a condor during the expected 30-year life span of the project.

California condors were brought back from the brink of extinction a quarter-century ago and still cling precariously to survival. Federal law prohibits the harassment or killing of endangered species for any reason.

Fish and Wildlife also made an exception for the 270,000-acre Tejon Ranch Co., saying that the government will not prosecute if construction of the company's controversial 5,553-acre development of luxury homes, hotels and golf courses violates the harassment ban in the endangered species law. The exception will last for 50 years. The project is expected to consume 8% of the critical condor habitat in the Tehachapis, about 60 miles north of Los Angeles.

So we eliminate the conder for mexicans just looking for a better life. Mexico is ranked the number 2 country in the world for obesity. Maybe if they all went on a diet, they'd have more food to export.

Now liberal and conservative whites alike are hightailing it out of "urban" communities they helped to propagate, and it's tough luck for the condor, and any other "problem" species in the area.

"too big to fail," or "too many to deport," the ethical challenge is the same, and the failure to meet it will end the same: a slow-motion economic/environmental catastrophe.
