H/T Michelle Malkin. The Washington Times reports that Mexican ambassadors are pleading for changes in planned border fencing not only to allow animals to wander freely, but also to allow birds, pollen, insects, and even water to flow freely. Now I understand the animals bit, but unless you make the fence about a mile high, exactly how are you going to prevent pollen, insects, and birds from going over it, and water from flowing through the cracks? Exactly why would any decent civil engineer place fence posts in a place where running water would undermine the concrete footings? They're also claiming that radars will interfere with nocturnal species; exactly how is this possible?
Methinks Mexico City is thinking more of the "safety valve" for their failed economic policies than the environment here.
