Below is the settlement that sets up the elite cabal that is making decisions affecting crucial sage-grouse habitats, including the first of a raft of projects WLD and WHE appealed. Fences kill sage-grouse.
Although it claims BLM still is in charge, the reality is the Nevada State Director John Ruhs has hamstrung the Battle Mountain BLM, and the welfare ranchers run the show. They are using the settlement and the closed group to get an endless series of taxpayer-subsidized projects built to further fragment and destroy sage-grouse habitat.
Here is a document from the group that shows just how many more expensive projects they are aiming to get taxpayers to subsidize for them. The discussion of the projects are towards the end.
Fencing costs around $5000 a mile.
