View All Photos 9. Movie Info. Mickey Prohaska Greg Kinnear is a small-time insurance agent looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife Lea Thompson and escape the frigid Wisconsin weather. This self-proclaimed master of spin believes that salesmanship is about selling a story - all he needs is a sucker willing to buy it.
He hits pay dirt with a lonely retired farmer Alan Arkin who is sitting on something much bigger than an insurance commission. But Mickey's attempt to con the old man spins out of control when a nosy, unstable locksmith Billy Crudup with a volatile temper dramatically ups the stakes, trapping him in a madcap spiral of danger, deceit and double-crossing.

Confusion about their numbers aside, everyone agrees that populations have been steadily declining. The marine mammal was first nominated for inclusion on the endangered species list back in FWS was required to make a final listing decision by The lawsuit is still pending. The very law that conservationists hope will help protect this animal, as well as many other species that are in peril — the ESA — is skating on thin ice, with its powers increasingly challenged by an administration that has little patience for laws and regulations that help protect our lands and wildlife.
The Act authorizes federal agencies to identify at-risk species and list them as either threatened or endangered, and requires them to take necessary actions to conserve those species and their habitats.

Once a species gets placed on the endangered species list, federal laws restrict killing and harassing survivors or destroying their habitat. At-risk species in other countries can also be protected by the ESA through the prohibition or regulation of trade in live animals or their parts and products. The ESA currently protects more than 1, native plant and animal species in the US and its territories, and foreign ones like chimpanzees and African elephants as well. These include iconic creatures like the grizzly bear, humpback whale, and gray wolf, and lesser known critters like the piping plover, black-footed ferret, and Miami blue butterfly.
And it has helped put hundreds more plants and animals on the road to recovery. Despite these successes, the ESA has always had a fair share of detractors — typically oil and gas execs, big ag companies, ranchers, landowners, and those opposed to federal oversight — largely because of the restrictions it places on land and water use. These critics say the law is overly cumbersome, hinders business and economic growth, and unduly burdens landowners whose property happens to fall within the habitat of a designated endangered species. Over the years, there have been many legislative attempts, usually backed by industry interests, to restrict what the Act can and cannot do.
According to the CBD, which has been keeping a running tally of these congressional bills, since there have been more than pieces of legislation introduced seeking to dismantle critical species protections. These bills include proposals to prematurely strip federal protections from specific species such as the sage grouse and African elephant, to underplay the role of science in listing decisions, and to prioritize the role of states instead of federal wildlife experts when it comes to implementing the Act. Often, these proposals are tacked on as riders to must-pass spending bills, such as the budget rider that removed protections from gray wolves in the northern Rocky Mountains.
The majority of the bills, more than , were introduced since , when Republicans took control of the House of Representatives. Under the Trump administration, efforts to undermine the ESA have, unsurprisingly, escalated further. In just the two years since Trump was sworn in as president, at least 80 bills seeking to undermine the ESA or remove species from the list have been introduced in Congress.
If the proposal goes through, it would become more difficult to add a new species, like the Pacific Walrus, to the list. Environmentalists fear that the changes would also make it easier to delist species because their habitats are desirable to industry. Sign in.
