What's The Bush Administration Up To, These Final Days?

Making endangered animals more endangered:

For more than 30 years, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or the National Marine Fisheries Service have reviewed any federal plans that could potentially protect endangered animals or plants. Under the administration's proposed rule, these independent scientific reviews would no longer be required if the agency in question determined that its activities would not hurt the imperiled species.

It's a twofer, angering environmentalists and also showing a nice anti-science side.
