    So three tortoises stand in the way of a multi-million dollar development project in green energy. This state is DMFD.

    The desert tortoises are kings of the endangered species in California. We had to put up 20 miles of foot-high fencing to keep them out of our construction sites. And those that managed to breach the fence had to be removed by a biologist while all work halted. Ponderous.

    Fuck em. If they can't move fast enough to get out of the way, that's just evolution proving that turtles are too slow to survive.

    All environmentalists need to kill themselves. It's the best thing they can do for the planet.

    I work in the timber industry and it's gotten so expensive and difficult to log in California that we're shipping logs from South America and Canada into our bay. We have fucking redwood trees here. So instead of employing people and harvesting a renewable resource, they burn fuel shipping logs in.

    I had a friend who brought one home from the desert for a "pet" for his kid. He had it a few weeks. When I told him that was probably a federal offense and that he should take it to a pet shop to see if what could be done about it, he panicked and ended up just releasing into the wild. He was afraid the pet store would rat him out to the feds.
