Dozens of Texas plant, animal species are candidates for T-and-E listing

This is hardly a surprise. When I flew down to Houston in 1982 on a temporary duty mission from Headquarters Air Force Reserve, Robins AFB, Ga., it was plain and obvious that Texas-sized sprawl had chewed up a lot of natural land (that thing developers like to call “raw” land). That city has likely grown to four times the size it was then in the intervening years. And that’s just Houston. Yes, buckaroos, it’s all about “growth” and this is what happens from “growth.”
