Them's the breaks

I read this today, and I'm wondering what the fuss is about.

Listen: isn;t the thing about evolution that species are supposed to die out? Isn't that the given? That's how it works, right? Species are not equipped for the environment, and they die. Teir death changes the environment, and the remaining species are either equipped, or nearly-equipped, to survive, and they adapt.

Doesn't protecting vanishing species disrupt the way evolution works? I'd be interested to find out ...
