There's loads more information on the Xerces Society website with regards to their work on establishing native milkweeds in California:

What I see you doing all over the internet and on many listserv is complaining and trying to cause arguments. Often these arguments have to do with putting down scientists and conservation group. It appears to me that you may suffer from some type of disorder because you don't give up your insane debating.

The horse and cattle men don't want milkweed in their pastures because they fear the toxicity of the milkweed. Farm irrigation ditches, well there may be milkweed there on the edges, but these ditches are probably mowed so that water can travel down and through them to irrigate the fields.

You Mr. Cherubini refuse to have any knowledge of all the work being done by Monarch Watch and the Xerces Society, plus all the other scientists and conservation groups. You claim no knowledge, which seems very insane to me. This is being done in California, too.
