*Editor’s Note* – What non thinking insanity is rearing its ugly head in this country/world. No thought here is given to anything except the selfish desires of perverted animal lovers, caring only for their own greedy desires, as Techonzombies, to destroy the wild places real wild animals live, and promoting it as saving the planet. Can it get any more stupid?
If one is stupid enough to believe the utter nonsense that man is causing the planet to warm, then consider, if it’s at all possible, what exploiting wild animals with Web cameras is doing to destroy the planet. Do these inconvenient truths not matter to ignorant hypocrites out to satisfy their uncontrollable addictions to technology, believing another fake “scientist” when he/she says all of this will save the planet? It’s akin to Algore flying his private jet around telling you and I we must sacrifice in order that he can keep flying.
The mere promotion of more and bigger and better web/trail cameras demands more natural resources and the process to build them increases their so-called carbon footprint. Then consider disposal of these items once a better camera is made. What effect does that have on the planet?
In addition, because of trail cameras capturing events that cause mentally disordered people to demand something be done, how many hundreds of thousands of dollars and gallons and gallons of fossil fuels were spent to save a bear that had a trap around its neck? Do any of you think with more and more people watching animals that demands for more wasteful spending won’t increase? And with it the carbon footprint. That’s solving global warming?
This article claims that people will no longer need to travel great distances to see animals “in the wild” (Bwahahahahaha) because they can watch them on TV/cellphones/computers/”eye”pads. Is that a proven theory? If so, why not tear down all the sports stadiums in the country. People can sit at home and watch. Close down the national parks and wildlife preserves. Think of the money we can save by just locking the gates and let web cameras provide for entertainment. Close down New York’s Central Park. Just be there “virtually” and display it on the wall of your living room. SAVE THE DAMNED PLANET FOOL!
If you think for a moment people might not stay home, then perhaps you also need to consider that because people so much like what they are seeing on their computers, they just have to drive, fly, take a boat, whatever, and go see it in person. I contend intrusions into places people probably shouldn’t be, will increase. They sure don’t understand human nature…nor do they give three rat’s behinds about respecting nature.
It appears to me as a way to exploit wild animals for profit. If these con artists can propagandize enough stupid people, consider how much money stands to be made. TECHNOZOMBIES! Present on their electronic devices and they will do anything.
Oh, my! We ARE hopeless!
“It’s going to be much more what did the elephant see as it was walking through Nepal? What’s a black-and-white colobus seeing as it spends its day?” says Wilkie. “Cameras are going to get small enough and with mesh networks,” in which multiple computer users are wirelessly connected and share information, “even the forests could be connected. Rather than a gigantic transmitter, you’d have a tiny transmitter that just needs to talk to the nearest way station.”
Like many conservationists, Wilkie believes that developing new technology like this is critical to engaging the next generation of screen-savvy digital natives, even if it means they catch glimpses of nature’s bloodier side.“
Just caring about one individual is not going to solve our ecosystem-wide problems or may be somewhat of a distraction, but I would also argue that that passion can drive an entire societal ethic,” says Joel Dunn of Chesapeake Conservancy. “And that ethic leads to people that vote for politicians that will prioritize the environment, it helps them donate to groups like ours that try to protect these places and species, and it breeds the next generation of conservation leader.”
