Several phone calls and two e-mails arrived this week from concerned Peninsula recreational fishermen about a task force implemented by President Obama.

NAtional Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration's Jane Lubchenco along with individuals from the World Wildlife Fund, Greenpeace, Defenders of Wildlife, Pew Environmental Group and others produced a document entitled "Transition Green" shortly after Obama was elected in 2008. We now see NOAA and the administration planning the future of recreational fishing in America based on a similar agenda of those same groups and other big green organizations, through an executive order of the president.
