The new agreement on a decision about loggerheads and leatherbacks is progress, but it’s worth remembering that the Bush Administration frequently broke such agreements. If the Obama Administration does the same, all that the Center for Biological Diversity can do is to file suit again.

It’s time to stop evaluating Barack Obama according to the promises he makes in his speeches, and start evaluating him according to his actual deeds. Barack Obama has failed his duties as President when it comes to dealing with the petition for the sea turtles.
