Global Warming: Having it Both Ways

Here we go again. Another “report” that places value (perceived) on “nature” and wants the world to set aside a minimum of 30% of its lands and waters for “conservation” to protect nature…because it is economically profitable. Really? Oh, I see. Let’s try that con job for awhile.

Oddly, and to anyone with half a brain, the idiotic double standards and hypocrisy take front and center. These mental midgets, heavily deceived, want to cut carbon dioxide because they believe it causes global warming. If these morons had their way, they would rid the world of carbon dioxide.

History and actual science proves that in times of increased carbon dioxide (a guess) that caused global warming, everything grew very well creating massive agricultural benefits, forest growth (habitat), food growth, for both man and animal, and poverty eased a bit. This was and is the best “protection” of nature.

Morons, claiming that protecting land and waters will accomplish more than global warming, are seeking to reduce global warming, thus removing the carbon dioxide levels necessary to actually protect and prosper our forests and fields. This is akin to urinating into a stiff breeze, I’d say.

The end result might just be the protection of more areas of wasteland incapable of growing even weeds.

What’s this locking up the land really all about? It that where they grow coronaviruses?

The “Other” Climate Change and a Message

At precisely 2:43 a.m. this morning, I awoke from a deep sleep…fully. So, I got up and went to the bathroom and returned to my bed where I laid, wide awake, and could not get back to sleep. Finally, I said, Heavenly Father, is there something on your mind; something you want me to do? The answer was read for a while.

So, I fired up my Kindle and opened up the Book of Enoch and began reading. Below I will post the first thing I read, which caused me to nearly chuckle aloud. This was immediately followed by a second thing I read, which I was told was a message to a reader.

When I had finished reading, about an hour later, I tried to go back to sleep but before I could I had to get the number 243, (2:43 a.m.) etched in my brain – nothing is by chance.

This morning, the first thing I did was to look up the meaning of 243. It means “other” or “another.” Therefore, the following passage makes sense as being the “other” or “another” version of Climate Change.

From the Book of Enoch:

“80.1 And in those days Uriel answered me and said to me: “Behold, I have
shown you everything, Oh Enoch. And I have revealed everything to you,
so that you may see this Sun, and this Moon, and those who lead the Stars
of Heaven, and all those who turn them, their tasks and their times and their rising.
80.2 But in the days of the sinners the years will become shorter, and their
seed will be late on their land, and on their fields. And all things on the
earth will change and will not appear at their proper time. And the rain will be withheld and Heaven will retain it.
80.3 And in those times the fruits of the earth will be late, and will not
grow at their proper time, and the fruits of the trees will be withheld at their proper time.
80.4 And the Moon will change its customary practice and will not appear
at its proper time.
80.5 But in those days it will appear in Heaven, come on top of a large
chariot in the west, and shine with more than normal brightness.
80.6 And many heads of the stars, in command, will go astray. And these
will change their courses and their activities and will not appear at the
times that have been prescribed for them.
80.7 And the entire law of the stars will be closed to the sinners, and the
thoughts of those who dwell upon the Earth will go astray over them, and
they will turn from all their ways and will go astray, and will think them
gods.
80.8 And many evils will overtake them and punishment will come upon
them to destroy them all.”

And to those who have ears to hear and eyes to see, Yahweh has a message for you:

“81.1 And he said to me: “Oh Enoch, look at the book of the Tablets of
Heaven and read what is written upon them, and note every individual
fact.”
81.2 And I looked at everything that was written and I noted everything.
And I read the book and everything that was written in it, all the deeds of
men, and all the children of flesh who will be upon the Earth, for all the
generations of eternity.
81.3 And then I immediately blessed the Lord, the Eternal King of Glory,
in that he has made all the works of the world, and I praised the Lord
because of his patience, and I blessed him on account of the sons of Adam.
81.4 And at that time I said: “Blessed is the man who dies righteous and
good, concerning whom no book of iniquity has been written, and against
whom no guilt has been found.”

Trickle-Down Nonsense of Moose Tick Infestations

This morning I was rereading a Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) blog post about the department’s ongoing moose survival study. There is little hope that ever in my lifetime we will rid ourselves of the ignorant brainwashing that has caused a new religion of Climate Change Worship. I am left with the firm understanding that, beyond politics, the science of climate change, has been replaced with the Scientism of utter nonsense. There is no hope. Regardless of whatever reality is, whether natural or man-made, the inability to understand simple concepts has been bred out of this post-normal society. Such is the case within our wildlife management departments worldwide. All that is known is we’re all gonna die from Climate Change.

There’s nothing I can say or do that is going to have any influence on the epidemic that has overtaken this dystopian totalitarian existence.

But maybe there is hope to some degree…or not. The blog post of which I linked to above reads: “This increase in winter tick is a consequence of the changing climate, resulting in milder winters and creating a greater opportunity for tick survival.”

One of the problems with making this statement is that there are not enough studies done on winter ticks to be able to fully understand the survival rates and conditions. While fish and wildlife biologists, along with millions of climate change religious fanatics, are nothing more than echo chambers of what he said-she said, hand selected information, most of which is based on scientism (outcome based) and void of real science (truth), is used to prop up narratives and is rooted in unprovable propaganda.

Currently, there are just as many, perhaps even more, pieces of scholarship that tell us that “climate” really is not a strong enough factor to consider in tick survival. (But, as I say, Don’t go look!)

The echo chambers constantly repeat the tale that harsh winters (this from the standpoint of we don’t have harsh winters anymore, which is bunkum) will kill off ticks that cause mortality in moose. Harsh winters have come and gone and returned again, the same way they always have. Those who choose to believe false data about temperature changes, wrongly believe that normal cold winters (if we still had them, wink-wink) would take care of the tick problem. They fail to understand tick mortality and the relationship to temperatures and climate, even suggesting they don’t really understand the life cycle of the moose tick.

Consider the following…if at all possible. If Climate Change is a real factor (There is natural climate change. There is NOT man-caused climate change…at least not in the way it is being sold to the public.) and if Maine is indicative of the rest of the world, it has seen a minuscule increase in average year round temperature (perhaps a half a degree) in the past few decades, then which scenario do you think would have the most influence on tick proliferation and mortality – a temperature change of half a degree over several decades, or an increase in moose populations, directly proportional to the increase in ticks, of say 50% or more over the same period of time?

Because the political persuasion of Climate Change Religion has so poisoned the minds of good men, perhaps then the only hope will be some changes made to moose management that is secondary, or worse, to counter the invasion of Scientism.

If we read further on at the MDIFW blog, we can read the following: “With parasites and disease, higher moose population leads to greater chance of transfer, ultimately causing more death. Since calves have two critical periods in their lives to ensure survival, it is of high priority for MDIFW to find ways to help improve moose health. For this reason, the agency is considering methods of selectively lowering the moose population in certain parts of the state to decrease the chance for parasite and disease transfer, eventually leading to a healthier and higher quality population.”

What is extremely interesting in this approach is that this is something I have been harping at for years now, i.e. that we should recognize those factors that influence wildlife that we have no ability to control and focus on those things that we can. DUH!

As much as anyone wants to harp on Climate Change, there’s nothing we can do about it, short of an all out war on the worlds’ human population. Some believe a tax on carbon will do the job. I might suggest that first we take a look at the historic raping of the public of taxes for such things as the War on Drugs, the War on Poverty, the War on Education, etc. and do an honest assessment as to the status of those billion dollar (in taxes) programs and the yield on investment. Yeah, I thought so.

So, we can’t change the climate…no, really, we CANNOT change the climate. We don’t even understand it or what influences it. How are we ever going to change it? Or do we want to?

A warming climate has historically always been followed by periods of prosperity, growth, ample food supplies, etc. Carbon dioxide is an important and necessary component to our own health and prosperity.

If the climate in Maine is changing so much, as we are led to believe, that moose ticks are growing by the trillions as a result, then it only makes sense, as we are also told, that the southern fringe of natural moose habitat would be migrating north, and along with it the northern fringe of the whitetail deer population would be expanding north along with the retreating moose.

We know that the opposite is true. Maine’s deer population is struggling to survive north of say the East and West highway of U.S. Route 2. We also know that moose are expanding into southern regions of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. This is all opposing the theories of Climate Change and the false claim that moose ticks are increasing due to Climate Change.

It is of some relief to see that at least in Maine, moose biologists are willing to attempt something beyond crying over Climate Change to improve the health of the moose herd. With open minds and a return to real wildlife science, biologists will soon learn, as others have before them, that the ONLY way to mitigate moose ticks is to reduce the population.

Let’s get on with it and put an end to this needless suffering.

Like Deliberate Killing of Endangered Species for Attention, So Goes Wildfires

Okay! So nobody wants to talk about the realization that there exists in this post-normal, insane society, people who would deliberately kill animals or start forest fires in order to draw attention to their own activism. But, isn’t it a reality?

The entire world is now subject to the brainwashing after effects of the Hegelian Dialectic. Whether a deliberate act or the consequence of True-Believership, the dialectic is real and plays a part, to some degree, in nearly everything we do. Mostly, we simply don’t realize it.

Briefly, the Hegelian Dialectic is defined as “Thesis, Reaction, Antithesis.” I like to put it more into layman’s terms and describe it this way – create a problem, embellish that problem, and then offer a preplanned solution.

When activists, depending upon the severity of their religious, dogmatic indoctrination, can’t get the attention they want that will perpetuate their insanity, they simply do whatever it takes. It some cases they will, for instance, find and kill an endangered species (thesis), blame it on hunters, ranchers, trappers, etc. (reaction/embellishment), and then propose more laws to punish and protect (antithesis/what they desired for an outcome when they killed the animal.).

Climate Change activism is no different. If simply magnifying the echo chambers doesn’t get enough attention in order to do something about Climate Change, why not start a fire?

It seems all we’ve heard about through Fall and early Winter is about all the “wildfires” in Australia. Regardless of how the fires started matters not to a Climate Change activists who has been taught “never let a good crisis go to waste.” As such, the fires, their intensity, frequency, and geographic proportions are being blamed on Climate Changes by the activists.

I was reading one account this morning on The Patriot Post of how the wildfires in Australia are mostly caused by deliberate arson: “…the Australian Associated Press reveal police had dealt with 31 adults and 67 juveniles suspected of deliberately setting fires, and that as many as 120 additional fires were still being investigated.”

What is not stated is how many of those deliberately set fires were done by activists wishing to embellish their “thesis” about Climate Change. It’s no laughing matter.

In a recent article, I wrote of deeper and darker, sinister power brokers working to establish a thinking among people that Climate Change will amount to catastrophic and widespread planet destruction unless “SOMETHING” isn’t done to stop it.

As I explained, this alarmism sets the stage for planned events that can be blamed on Climate Change. To it’s ultimate pinnacle of insanity, the end of the world could arrive and people would be blaming it on Climate Change, which is all part of a much larger example of our wrestling against powers and principalities in dark places.

While few can see the deeper and larger scheme of “Bread and Circuses,” nothing prevents the useless eaters, those True Believer wannabes, who do the bidding for the power brokers, often unaware, in their emotional state of “we’re all gonna die,” are prompted to such events as killing animals and setting fires.

The thesis has been promulgated that man-caused Climate Change is going to destroy the planet. Jumping on the bandwagon of taking full advantage of a crisis, real or created, to embellish the thesis, is what sets the stage for preplanned solutions.

The most common “solution” is a tax on carbon. None of us knows the amount of the tax or what the money will be used for other than to believe the lies the government officials and those who promote Climate Change tell us. There are deeper and darker sides to the “we need to do something.” Those realities are never spoken of. Such eye-openers as eugenics.

Beyond the surface discussions of Climate Change lurks darkness that is impossible for most to see or even imagine. Trust me when I say that cows farting, forests burning, and cars burning fossil fuels have nothing at all to do with the real drivers of Climate Change. What needs to be learned is what these religious freaks will do to save the planet and what ground work is being laid that will ultimately spell our own demise.

Consensus Science or We’re All Gonna Die?

Many have been brainwashed to the belief that what was once called global warming, and now Climate Change, is consensus science. It can be rightfully argued that consensus and science are like oil and water; that consensusism (?) is not science nor is science consensusism. In truth, consensus science is an oxymoron created by delusional morons.

Why is there a need to present anthropogenic Climate Change as something a “consensus” agrees exists? The only explanations have to be for sinister reasons and, most likely, there is a lot of money involved. At least that is at the surface. Is there a deeper and darker meaning here or maybe even a CONspiracy? If a conspiracy, then who are the perps?

Throughout modern history, some have spent a great deal of time fretting over things that are going to kill them. These beliefs of falling off the edge of the earth; planets, meteors, and stars crashing to earth; devastating storms; wars and rumors of wars; disease; rotten or nonexistent food and toxic water; and now Climate Change, tend to put much of the world’s population into some kind of fearful frenzy, all exclaiming “We’re All Gonna Die!” if SOMETHING isn’t done to stop all these things. SOMETHING? Like what? If it was real, could money stop it? Has money stopped “the war on drugs,” “the war on poverty,” “the war of education,” etc.? Why will money (taxes) stop a perceived and marketed consensusismic Climate Change?

I am one of those who, probably wrongfully, have presented arguments for many years now as to why this idea of global warming and all it’s sworn catastrophes that will happen if we don’t do SOMETHING, is all bunk and rooted in sinister criminal government (world rulers) actions.

One of the reasons I don’t buy into this Satanic clap trap can be found in reading the book of Enoch. Enoch, the seventh from Adam, whose book was once an integral part of the Holy Scriptures, before it was removed and covered up by the religious leaders of this world (some of whom promote Climate Change), recalls his vision given to him by the Almighty EL.

According to Enoch and the understanding of his vision, he describes “God’s Law” as such:

“2.1 Contemplate all the events in the sky; how the lights in the sky do not
change their courses, how each rises and sets in order, each at its proper
time, and they do not transgress their law.
2.2 Consider the earth and understand from the work that is done upon it,
from the beginning to the end, that no work of God changes as it becomes
manifest.
2.3 Consider the summer and the winter; how the whole earth is full of
water and the clouds and dew and rain rest upon it.
3.1 Contemplate and see how all the trees appear withered and all their
leaves are stripped – with the exception of the fourteen trees, which are not
stripped, which remain with the old leaves until the new come after two or
three years.
4.1 And, again, contemplate the days of summer; how at its beginning the
Sun is above it. You seek shelter and shade because of the heat of the Sun
and the earth burns with scorching heat, and you cannot tread upon the
earth or upon a rock, because of its heat.
5.1 Contemplate how the trees are covered with green leaves and bear fruit. And understand, in respect of everything, and perceive how He Who Lives Forever made all these things for you.
5.2 And how His works are before Him in each succeeding year, and all
His works serve Him and do not change; but as God has decreed – so
everything is done.
5.3 And consider how the seas and rivers together complete their tasks.
5.4 But you have not persevered in, nor observed, the Law of the Lord. But
you have transgressed and have spoken proud and hard words with your
unclean mouth against his majesty. You hard of heart! You will not have
peace!
5.5 And because of this you will curse your days, and the years of your life
you will destroy. And the eternal curse will increase and you will not
receive mercy.
5.6 In those days, you will transform your name into an eternal curse to all
the righteous. And they will curse you sinners forever.
5.7 For the chosen; there will be light, joy, and peace, and they will inherit
the earth. But for you, the impious, there will be a curse.
5.8 When wisdom is given to the chosen they will all live, and will not
again do wrong, either through forgetfulness, or through pride. But those
who possess wisdom will be humble.
5.9 They will not again do wrong, and they will not be judged in all the
days of their life, and they will not die of wrath or anger. But they will
complete the number of the days of their life. And their life will grow in
peace, and the years of their joy will increase in gladness and eternal peace; all the days of their life.”

Clearly this states two very important things. One, that the creations of the Almighty do not change, and two, they only change when the Almighty decides it will change. So, if there is going to be chaos and catastrophic destruction, it will be by the hand of Yahweh and not by the hand of Al Gore or any of his other delusional followers, who choose to blame you and I for the Change, demanding we change our lifestyles while they do not. This is Satanic.

But consider this for a moment. This life here on Earth is ruled by Satan himself. That’s why it is full of hate, anger, and turmoil. It will not get any better so long as he is in charge. He knows his days are limited and as his army is released to wreak havoc everywhere they go, is there a better way to disguise the destruction Satan and his army will do than to hide it behind something man-created called Climate Change?

Willful ignorance and strong delusion has caused many to swallow all the doctrine surrounding global warming (Climate Change). People want to believe that their own actions, their mere existence, will cause the planet to cease to exist…unless, of course, SOMETHING isn’t done about it. I ask again, what is going to be done?

If the blind knew it was Satan and his army who were causing all the bad things happening now and more to come, wouldn’t they then begin to question? Not if the deception and the delusion was such that many could not and would not take notice.

Nothing happens that is not of the will of the Almighty EL…NOTHING. We are incapable of understanding the mind of the Creator of All Things. Things are about to happen here on Earth and even though it will disappoint some people, those things are not going to be caused by anthropogenic Climate Change. They will happen by the hand of Yahweh. You need to recognize that.

If you are willing to consider this deception, then it can only make sense that those behind and pushing the “consensus science” of Climate Change are “bugs,” “scorpions;”…agents of Satan doing Satan’s work.

I am at peace. Are you?

We’re All Gonna Die: WRONG!!! Again

More than a decade ago….Hmmm. Let’s see. A decade ago would be January 8, 2010. More than a decade? Geez, I dunno. A decade ago, Barack Hussein Obama had been president just about one year.

According to the Washington Times, “more than a decade ago,” the National Park Service had new signs made and erected in Montana’s Glacier National Park. The signs read: “The small alpine glaciers present today starting forming about 7,000 years ago and reached their maximum in size and number around 1850, at the end of The Little Ice Age. They are now rapidly shrinking due to human-caused climate change. Computer models indicate the glaciers will be all gone by the year 2020.”

Uh, er, ahem….the glaciers, those “small alpine glaciers” haven’t gone anywhere as we begin the year 2020. (In fairness to the Climate Change fairies, we still have about a year to make that happen.) Evidently, now that the National Park Service seems to have more money to replace the signs (Trump couldn’t have done that), the NPS is going to replace the signs that will tell us, we’re all still gonna die. We just don’t know for sure when.

If the Trump administration was not an advocate for Climate Change voodooers, and/or politically motivated to continue political badgering even in our national parks, they would make sure the new signs said nothing about Climate Change.

We’re all gonna die!!! Take a number and wait. The Dragon will call your name soon enough.

The Radical Insanity of Climate Change

Below is a press release from the chair of the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. It is a prime example of the perverse insanity that has gripped much of this society, misleading us into nonsensical acts of idiocy in the false belief that the mere existence of man is causing the climate to change to the extent that we’re all gonna die.

By the way, this IS YOUR tax dollars at work. Is this what you really want? Do you have any idea at all what this plan to make all our public lands carbon neutral by 2040 means? Of course you don’t.

Take note of who the chair of the House Committee has selected as guest speakers for this event. It shows the radicalism and insanity.

Chair Grijalva, Committee Democrats to Introduce Landmark Climate Change Legislation Slashing Emissions From Public Lands and Waters

Washington D.C. – Chair Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and several members of the Natural Resources Committee will lead a press conference at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Dec. 10, to unveil their flagship legislation to fight the climate crisis. Members will discuss the legislation’s importance and describe the path it provides to end our public lands’ and waters’ contribution to climate change by 2040.

The landmark bill – authored by Grijalva and cosponsored by a team of Committee members – is the culmination of a year of hearings, roundtables, public forums and other public outreach efforts to learn more about how best to tackle climate change. Since taking the House majority, Natural Resources Committee Democrats have spent much of the past year tackling climate change from every angle.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, climate-harming emissions from public lands account for nearly a quarter of the U.S. total. The new bill seeks to reduce that figure while simultaneously promoting positive climate actions so that the total net contribution of public lands to greenhouse gas emissions is zero by 2040.

In February, the Committee kicked off a historic month of climate change hearings to hear from impacted communities, launched an online platform to hear from the American people about how climate change has impacted them, and held 22 hearings in 2019 focused on climate change to hear from experts, community members, Indian Country, scientists, and advocates.

The feedback gathered through these efforts has consistently underscored the urgent need to limit climate pollution as soon as possible, and to help impacted communities adapt quickly.

The bill is endorsed by multiple stakeholders and public interest advocacy groups, who will provide remarks at the press conference. 

Where: 1334 Longworth House Office Building

When: 12 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Dec. 10

Speakers 

Chair Raúl M. Grijalva

Vice-Chair Deb Haaland (D-N.M.)

Rep. Mike Levin (D-Calif.)

Chase Huntley, The Wilderness Society

Marissa Knodel, Earthjustice

Aaron Mintzes, Earthworks 

Sharon Buccino, Natural Resources Defense Council

The press conference will be livestreamed on the Natural Resources Committee Facebook Page.

Combatting The Climate Crisis???

Crisis: “a time of intense difficulty, trouble, or danger.”

A Press Release from the House Natural Resources Committee:

Washington D.C. – Today Chair Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) led a Committee markup to advance key Natural Resources priorities, including four bills that protect 1.3 million acres of wilderness in California and Colorado. The bills’ passage is the most recent step in the Committee’s ongoing efforts to protect public lands, promote access for all Americans and combat the climate crisis.

Following the markup, Natural Resources Democrats released the first edition of their new Climate Solutions series on Medium. The first post focuses on how conservation and protecting wilderness can help fight the climate crisis by naturally storing carbon, protecting clean water resources, and preserving intact ecosystems from destruction. Scientists around the globe have called for theprotection of land in order the keep Earth habitable for future generations of human and non-human species.

Bill texts, amendments, amendments in the nature of a substitute, and vote counts can be found at the House of Representatives Committee Repository at https://bit.ly/35lIGLX

A “Naturally Occurring” Fungi To Kill Moose Ticks? What Possibly Could Go Wrong?

Oh my! I was reading this article about how entomologists have discovered what they call a “naturally occurring fungi” that, in lab conditions, attacks and kills the dreaded winter tick, or moose tick, that is being blamed for killing moose in numbers not satisfactory to the wildlife managers…or so it keeps being repeated.

The idea, evidently, is to figure out what dosages and how to apply it to the forests so that it finds its way to the ticks/larvae in order to have any affect. We should be asking, what could possibly go wrong?

Reading the article, it is difficult to make actual sense from much of it because it is laced with repeated mythology about the winter tick – such things as how global warming contributes to the increased number of ticks on the landscape. Mixed in with the mythology, we can extract a few comments, etc. from the scientists who are working on this project – enough to at least say, what to ???????

This is the part that causes normal thinking people to scratch their heads in confusion wondering about the hypocrisy in thinking, or the lack thereof.

Yesterday I wrote a short piece about the criminal U.S. Senate, who in one breath say we are all gonna die because there are too many cars and too much carbon dioxide, which is warming the planet, and…and…and…yes, we are all gonna die if they don’t do something about taking our cars away from us so members of Congress can fly bigger, faster planes. In the next breath, the Senate unanimously approves a bill to better promote America’s Scenic Byways, to encourage more people to drive more cars, longer distances…and what the hell happened to we’re all gonna die?

When it comes to ticks, cast aside are any thoughts from the post-normal society of automatons who claim they want Mother Nature to rule everything. They believe hunting, trapping, and fishing should be stopped because of animal’s “rights” and that actions such as these are destroying game animals and in return just the thought of hunting is having negative effects on the entire ecosystem – that man should just butt out of any sort of wildlife management and let things take a “natural” course.

But then, along comes somebody with a potentially dangerous suggestion of how to kill winter ticks (a naturally occurring entity) in order that we can artificially grow more moose. Forget any notions that the real reason there are so many ticks is because there are too many moose and “Mother Nature” is doing what it does to kill off much of the moose population as a means of attempting to mitigate the tick problem, which is, must be anyway, upsetting the ecosystem. Oh, my! Are we all gonna die?

So, another question is, what is the purpose of thinking that a “naturally occurring” fungus might kill off the winter tick? Is it because this effort has monetary profit? Is it because we are all gonna die from too many ticks? Is it because some people want to have more moose to play with?

And here’s a brilliant question. If the fungi that can kill winter ticks is “naturally occurring” then why isn’t it, in the grand scheme of Natural Regulation, already mitigating the winter tick problem and any other problem that might be solved by its existence?

In the entire article I can’t find anywhere any kind of discussion of protection and growth of the moose as a food source. In a normal existence, moose as a food source would be the number one consideration of any need to protect and/or grow a crop. No more. Post normal existence is about cherry picking ideas and actions that fit the narratives of the moment – and to hell with food sources…well, until I they get hungry.

Maine had perhaps as many as 100,000 moose. Greed and selfishness cause people to begin making demands for more moose for profit. Instead of obtaining understanding of why there were so many moose on the landscape all of a sudden and that one day when that reason for a population explosion went away, something was going to have to change, the intention of the moose biologists was to figure out how to keep growing moose so that everyone had one as a pet in their back yard (not for food).

The notion here is to figure out what kind of a dosage is needed to apply to the “naturally occurring” “earth and leaves” where the “naturally occurring” winter tick lands in Spring to lay “naturally occurring” eggs that begin the cycle all over again. Might I also mention here that whether there is ice and snow or not on top of those “naturally occurring” “earth and leaves” whatever it is at that time is “naturally occurring?” How dare I!!!!!

The article presents stunning photographs of a cluster of winter tick larvae at the end of a stick of vegetation “questing” for a host. When that host (moose, elk, deer) walks by, they climb aboard. Gee! What if there just weren’t so many darn hosts?

Instead of managing moose in numbers that are healthy…(Note: It was only a short while ago that the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife announced they were going to abandon wildlife counts and concentrate on causing wildlife to be healthy.) the interest seems to be in protecting and growing them in numbers to satisfy the selfish desires of a post-normal society that is obsessed with securing animals as friends and not as a food source.

With a focus on how to kill the winter ticks to protect the moose, and other ungulates (that really are not bothered so much by the ticks -moose are poor groomers) has any consideration been given to the collateral damage that might take place if and when scientists begin sprinkling a “naturally occurring” fungi in unnatural quantities?

Isn’t this entire effort really being based on the supposition that man-caused Climate Change is the culprit for everything? Combine that with misguided notions about wildlife and the purposes for its existence and, like promoting more driving while at the same time demanding people stop driving, ignorance in the causes and effects of “natural occurring” and man-caused events can potentially destroy much, if not all, of what people think they are trying to protect.

It would appear that we have continued ideas, much like our ready acceptance of a piece of paper that allows someone to “practice” medicine, so too are pieces of paper licenses for someone else to “practice” wildlife management and “practice” growing fungi. Like medicine and the demands for drugs by patients, wildlife practitioners are under pressure from a post-normal society that demands animals to play with, even at the expense of all other things…for that moment.

What can possibly go wrong?
