The number of western monarch butterflies wintering along the California coast has plummeted precipitously to a record low, putting the orange-and-black insects closer to extinction

An annual winter count by the Xerces Society recorded fewer than 2,000 butterflies, a massive decline from the tens of thousands tallied in recent years and the millions that clustered in trees from Northern California’s Marin County to San Diego County in the south in the 1980s

Re @razibkhan I see a fair bit of commentary on the day's public religiosity, and a bit of crowing from Catholic Democrats. But less a milestone than a moment to own the Catholic cons. twitter.com/DouthatNYT/status/ #Democrats
