More than 70% of Arizona's water supply goes into agriculture.
Why? Why waste so much of a scarce resource trying to grow plants in the desert?
I could get it if we had some kind of an eternally renewable desalination plant setup, but we don't. We're just throwing water away for no reason.

What do they have that a squirrel doesn't, but squirrel not monkey.

Species that aren't going to make it. Starting with an incredibly obvious one that'll be really sad to lose.

California Man Pleads Guilty For Role in Scheme to Smuggle Endangered and Vulnerable Turtles from the U.S. To China

https://www.justice.gov/usao-or/pr/california-man-pleads-guilty-role-scheme-smuggle-endangered-and-vulnerable-turtles-us

EUGENE, Ore.— A Chinese national residing in Los Angeles pleaded guilty today for his role in a scheme to purchase hundreds of endangered and vulnerable turtles in the U.S. and smuggle them via U.S. mail and commercial airline flights to China.

Yuan Xie, 30, pleaded guilty today to one count of conspiring to smuggle goods from the U.S.

According to court documents, beginning in at least May 2017 and continuing until October 2018, Xie conspired with another Chinese national, Xiao Dong Qin, 35, of Shanghai, China, to purchase more than 769 live turtles from reptile dealers in Alabama, California, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, Nevada, North Carolina, and South Carolina. All of the turtles purchased and smuggled by Xie are protected by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.

A two-year investigation by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) revealed that in an 18-month period, Xie facilitated the purchase and transportation of approximately 134 Florida box turtles, 178 eastern box turtles, 127 North American wood turtles, 220 spotted turtles, 77 diamondback terrapins, 25 three-toed box turtles, seven yellow-blotched map turtles, and one Blanding’s turtle from his former residence in Eugene, Oregon. USFWS investigators determined the cost of the turtles involved in this investigation exceeded $150,000 and estimated the market value was more than double that amount in the Chinese pet trade.

Were they in the wrong? Would you put your doggo down in the same situation?
