Negotiation? What negotiation? What table? I do not believe there is, nor was there ever, an invitation to negotiate anything. It was, and remains, a series of actions taken by various governmental bodies (with the illusion of opposing interest participation, such as superficial comment periods) that are pandering to AR special interests and governmental departments and employees that stand to gain from those actions. They have clearly fabricated science to support policy positions that precluded the "reports" on which they are supposedly based. You can put pearls on a pig all you want, but it remains a pig. I agree, and have previously stated, that we have won nothing. But I do not agree that we are forfeiting our negotiating position by telling the truth about what has transpired, because I don’t believe we are in a negotiation. I think the only chance we have is probably in court. I do not believe these parties (FWS/DOI and their propaganda organization USGS) are interested in truth, reason, nor least of all, negotiation.
