What an out of touch article!. We don’t need more regulations in California, if anything we need less regulations. I could care less about the ecosystem and we have thousands of people sleeping on the streets because environmentalists care more about wildlife, zoning law and permits than human-beings. Thankfully people with your mentality with your elitist mentality DI know what’s better for humanity type of mentality are becoming less and less that’s why it’s time for California’s vote for someone on the opposites side of the political spectrum. We need to be regulates California and send environmentalists home so we can help human beings. You see the life of a human being is worth more than the life of a coyote or a mountain lion so if we have to build in their habitats even if it means their extinction that’s better than leaving people to sleep on the streets daily or to pile them in shelters with no privacy etc. anyway, I’m not gonna have this argument though, your article is elitist, out of touch and if it says anything, it shows how empty you are as a person you have nothing going on in your life and it’s usually people like that who feel the need to regulate everything around them and make it even harder for the average person.
