They're going to shut down oil production in west Texas over a 3-inch lizard. These are the same people who declared the Delta Smelt to be endangered and subsequently destroyed the agriculture industry in the San Joaquin Valley in California. W.Texas supplies 20% of domestic oil consumption. This amounts to another way to shutdown energy production in the United States. Reduce that nasty carbon footprint by eliminating agriculture and energy production. Yesterday the Feds threatened to shutdown commercial airline flights to/from Texas because there was state legislation declaring TSA groping a felony. Texas would make a fine little country. Maybe they should go in that direction.
