In the 1980s I was stationed at Whiteman AFB, (today home of B-2 and A-10s, but then a missile base). We had the Greater Prairie Chicken which is also protected. Its "booming area" for mating was just off our runway. We were able to do work arounds then and I am sure that good environmental scientists can do it today. It is sad that we have entered an era of litigious lawyers. Here is a study of the actual use of falconry at Whiteman to reduce bird strikes on the prairie chicken. http://books.google.com/books/about/AD_774_568.html?id=HCBBHQAACAAJ
So very true, every bit of it. In 2009 when the Cap and Trade bill was being debated in the House there were carveouts for Duke Power as well as Alcoa Aluminum's extensive Warrick, IN plants. These firms were to be given Carbon Credits based upon their old 1950s vintage efficiency electric plants. However both companies were building new more efficient plants. The "carve out" carbon credits were to be sold to the unfortunate comapnies that were not crony capitalists. Jim Rogers of Duke went so far as to secure DNC Convention for Charlotte, NC. There was a lot of talk that Rogers would be next DoE Secretary but the stink he aquired in the acquisition of a Carolina company was too much and he is no longer Chair of Duke Power. Crony capitalism at its finest. Fortunately US Senate voted Cap and Trade down in late fall 2010. As bad as the House of Representatives are, they are right now all that stands between us and crony "Cap and Trade".

As a kid back in the early 60's I would go out in the woods in my uncle's land in coastal and then rural Rye, NH and harvest these cedar trees for post and rail fences. Being cedar they lasted a long time. We built hundreds of feet of fence using what is now known as the endangered Atlantic White cedar. https://plants.usda.gov/factsheet/pdf/fs_chth2.pdf The trees were easy to strip of bark when wet, however the sheer act of creating the fence advertised the fact that these trees existed. Biologists became keen to this fact and my uncle could no longer sell or do anything with the land. My first exposure to what Marita is writing about. http://des.nh.gov/organization/commissioner/pip/factsheets/cp/documents/cp-20.pdf
Could be --Buffets BNSF was cleaning up with upwards of a $30 a barrel price differential between Minnesota and Cushing OK. The WSJ reported on this last spring.

To Endlich's study on Pisa I would also give you Aquileia Italy on the Adriatic. This city became capital of the Roman Empire in the 4-5th century. It is now located several miles from the water and it was not rediscovered until the 18th century. As a USAF Environmental officer stationed in Italy in 2007 I had the opportunity to see Pisa and Aquileia. Aquileia was chosen as an Imperial refuge in the 5th century because it was a seaport with easy access and a reasonable chance of defense, today high and dry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquileia
