I have one of the worst jobs in science!

According to Popular Science's annual ranking of the worst jobs in science, I (no really me!) have one of the worst jobs. They list scientists doing triage -that is having to evaluate which species to save given that we can't save all, as being particularly crummy. They specifically cite my study of phylogenetic uniqueness and ecosystem function as an example. Well I guess it is a little depressing to try to evaluate which species should be saved over others, but I don't think it is as bad as a medical waste burner...
