Stop the dunes sagebrush lizard hysteria

Center for Biological Diversity says that, even on oil-drilling lands, the lizard, a candidate for Endangered Species Act protection, has habitat on only about 5 percent of the land.

That's even as U.S. Fish and Wildlife is pushing back an ESA decision by six months.
