Endangered Species

Season 3, Episode 11 -  Air Date: 7/18/2005

Synopsis

In over 30 years, the Endangered Species Act has cost taxpayers billions of dollars, but it has saved next to no endangered species! Its major accomplishment? Lining the pockets of environmental lawyers who know how to manipulate it for huge fees. And it‘s an excuse for a governmental land grab. We‘ll meet activists on all sides - from passionate believers who‘ll do anything to enforce the ESA, to a strong-willed, good-natured lady in a wheelchair who‘s homeless. The ESA won‘t let her build on her suburban lot in a neighborhood surrounded by houses and within rock throwing distance of a WalMart Supercenter! ESA our ass! Here‘s the simple fact: human beings and industrialization are not the sole impetus for extinction and if you hear anything different… it‘s bullshit!
