Sorry.  My primary profession at this point in my life is as a preacher -
my former career was in dental (lots or crooks there too).  At least 50% of
the preachers I know I don't like as they are experts at manipulating
people.  Preachers, politicians, lawyers and enviro-science all fall in the
same pot.   Two elements are endemic.  1) insinuation and 2) deniability.
(Yes, there are lots of good apples in all those fields, but their very
functionality genders deceit [sic] lying.)

IF you don't pay your tithes you MIGHT get struck dead.  And IF you are 10
years delinquent in your tithe paying it MIGHT not be a bad idea to get
caught up.  Parishioner goes out and sells his home, empties his savings
and writes a check to the church or preacher.   When the parishioner wises
up and takes the preacher to court for "telling" him  liquidate everything,
the preacher pulls out the deniability card of if, might, coulda, shoulda,
woulda, and say he never said anything one on one to the Mr. Sap.

IF you don't get braces for your daughter she MIGHT hate you when she grows

As I said, sorry.  I'd rather some one just say it - and be wrong.  But the
continual little life boat phrases and back door exits lead this synic to
smell fraud - and the outrageous a mounts of funding are the cherry on the
cheese cake for me.

IS this leps/conservation related?   You bet.   There are plenty of real
species in real danger of extinction and billion$ of funds are needed.  IF
_ fraud exists here ( see I can do it too ), and it is eventually found
out - even if after Brower et all are long dead,  the situation will become
a poster child for the anti-environmental lobby to cast doubt on every
valid need and program after it.   THAT is my main concern.   IF any field
chooses to remain blind to the possibility of fraud within its own ranks
and thus does not police itself - government or someone else will.  Brower
need to be held _accountable_ not excused year after year, failed
prognostication after failed warning. ( All the while building one of the
highest profile "conservatoin" situations of our tme.)The people who
"believe" Paul don't really do so, he just says, hey look at that.   We
(and there are many of us) look and see and don't like what WE see.
