The 46,000-member American
Physical Society argues the need for
action is urgent because the energy
crisis is the worst in US. history. It
also says that the physics and chem-
istry behind the human causes of
climate change — such as heat-trap-

fossil fuels — is “well understood
and beyond dispute.“

The report argues that the coun-
try can still go a long way to reduce
energy use in cost-effective ways
that allow for continued comfort
and convenience. Although efficient
energy technologies can save mon-
ey, the US. has been slow to catch
on. the report says. It recommends
that the federal government adopt

policies and make investments.

“The opportunities are huge and
the costs are small.“ the report said.

The report's authors noted that
both Republican John McCain and
Democrat Barack Obama have
called for improvements in energy
efficiency and reduced oil imports
and emissions. They said that the
public also wants these changes be-

California red-legged frog re-
gained political territory
Tuesday as the Fish and
Wildlife Service proposed
designating 1.8 million acres
in California as critical habi-
tat for the threatened species.

The proposal spans 28
counties and more than
triples the agency’s previous
critical habitat proposal. Fish
and Wildlife Service officials
also hope it quiets the long-
running amphibian controver-
sy, although that may be un-

that Mark Twain first made
famous in the days when car-

frogs as a food delicacy,"
Mike Fris. the agency's

sistant regional director, said
in a written statement.

The largest native frog in
the Westem United States. the
California red-legged frog
casts an equally outsized po-
litical shadow. The new criti-
cal habitat proposed Tuesday
is the fourth revision in seven
years. The last rewrite was re-
tracted after federal investiga—
tors began examining former
Deputy Assistant Interior
Secretary Julie MacDonald.

Though avoiding her
name. the Fish and Wildlife
Service stated Tuesday that
MacDonald “may have inap—
propriately influenced the ex—
tent and locations“ of the
frog‘s prior critical habitat

proposal. The latest revisions
largely pleased environmen-
talists. who along with Fish
and Wildlife Service profes-
sionals had frequently
clashed with MacDonald.

“No endangered species
can survive without its habi-
tat intact. and the red-legged
frog desperately needs pro—
tection of adequate wetlands

range,“ declared Jeff Miller.

The specific 49 habitats
range from a 4.449-acre par—
cel in northwestem (.‘alaveras

thousand acres in San Luis

land in Merced. Fresno and
Stanislaus counties that had
originally been included.

Officials are still calculat—
ing the proposal's estimated

The Fish and Wildlife,
Service initially proposed in
2001 a critical habitat cover-
ing 4.1 million acres. Ranch-
ers. developers and San
Joaquin Valley lawmakers
erupted. The agency then
scaled the proposal back to
737.912 acres. That didn‘t
end the struggle.

in April 2006. the Fish
and Wildlife Service pro—
posed 450288 acres. A year
later. officials backtracked
and said they would try yet
again because of MacDon-
ald‘s apparent interference.
MacDonald abruptly resigned
in May 2007.

“MacDonald did not
want to designate critical
habitats." the interior Depart—
ment's Office of Inspector
General reported last year.
adding that MacDonald ap-
peared “frustrated" by the
critical habitat decisions.

Northwest sea lions teach humans the folly of fighting Mother Nature

The Seattlmtes

SEATTLE — The mus—
cle—bound beasts sprawling
across the wet wood were
males. all of them. big~
whiskered. furry fellows in
their prime. the nourishing fat
beneath their skin thick
enough to measure in inches.
The beasts w four California
and two Steller sea lions -—
were lounging on two bed-
room-size floating traps that.
ringed with chain-link fenc-
ing. bobbed on the water like
a pair of giant bird cages.

Biologists had jUSI started
using these pens to capture
some of the sea lions 4 the
ones most responsible for
wolfing down imperiled
salmon and steelhead below
Bonneville Dam. 145 miles
from the mouth of the (.‘o-
lumbia River. The traps were
simple affairs that mimicked
the sea lions‘ simple needs.
Every day. a few passing ani—
mals would launch their rip-
pling bellies onto the plat-
fomis through open cage
doors. While they lolled
about in the spring air as if

- the platforms were any other
handy haulout. authorities
with binoculars compared
their markings to a wanted
list of known fish-gobblers. lf
offenders were aboard. biolo~

. gists Would trip the cage

doors shut. trapping the pred-
ators until they could be
hauled off and shipped out.

As dawn broke on Sunday
May 4. the six sea lions
aboard the platforms were
moving freely. wriggling
about like squirrely children
on an unfamiliar mattress. But
when Robin Brown. a marine—
mammal biologist with Ore—
gon's Department of Fish and
Wildlife. got to them six hours
later. the trap doors were shut
and the squimting had ceased.
All six sea lions were dead.

Authorities immediately
suspected an assassin. Sea Ii-
ons are known for thieving
chinook from anglers‘ lines:
perhaps a vigilante fisherman
had taken revenge. Certainly
the circumstantial evidence
was convincing. Two sea li-
ons had metal fragments in
their necks. A metal slug was
lodged in the blubber of a
third. Rangers the day before
had found three elephant—seal
carcasses in California. each
with gunshot wounds to the
head. Federal authorities
quickly announced what they
presumed had happened:
Someone had shot and killed
these creatures. Another en»
dangered‘species conflict had
been settled with a gun.

To those who grasp the
West‘s cultural DNA. it
seemed an obvious end to an—
other chapter in the story of
man vs. nature. We burld
dams and locks and reengi-
neer rivers to suit our needs.
each time generating unex-
pected problems. In trying to
fix the problems. we in-
evitably generate new ones.
Resolutions remain elusive.

Truth. it turns out. isn‘t
easy to pin down, In the case
of the sea lions. the facts that
emerged created more qtlcse
trons than answers. The bodies
yielded no bullets. The slug
' and hits of metal biologists
found had been stuck in the
animals for years The actual
cause of death did little to clear

things up: Something had agi—
tated these sea lions. They died
gnawing at each other. Stress
made their blood vessels ooze
like soaker hoses. filling their
lungs and livers with fluids.
Their tissue and internal organs
actually started cooking. the
bum so intense the heat still ra-
diated hours later. On a chill.
sunless moming. these animals
had boiled to death.

"There‘s just no telling
what got them so worked
up." says Peregrine Wolff. an
Oregon Fish and Wildlife vet»
erinarian who helped perfonn
autopsies on them. "In other
cases where we‘ve trapped
sea lions. they're laid back.
even though they‘re out of
the water way longer. This is
truly a mystery. one we‘ll
probably never solve."

In the Pacific Northwest.
people have gone head to
head with these fin-footed
tricksters for decades. Yet
even in death. sea lions can
outsmart humans.

Sea lions —— the ones
called Califomia sea lions in
particular — are sophisticated
creatures that can learn and
adapt. a sort of water varmint
that humans find both amus-
ing and frustrating. Pat
Gearin. a sea—lion expert with
National Oceanic and AtmOs-
pheric Administration Fish-
eries in Seattle. keeps a few
photographs of some of their
greatest hits: a sea lion that
wiggled itself onto the back
of a police car; one staring at
a sign as if questioning the
words; a dozen sea lions map
ping on the back of a Navy
submarine. But when things
get more serious and we war
with these mammals. it‘s al-
most always about fish.
Gearin has seen sea lions
cruise net lines and bypass
low—grade pink salmon and
chum for the tastier sockeye
that humans prize. too.
Brown. with the state of Ore-
gon. says sea lions have been
known to track boatloads of
weekend—warrior anglers.
