OPINION: MNRF takes the road of junk science to forward their agenda

In my younger years growing up in Sundridge, the moose season fell on every even year and lasted a week. You bought your moose license and shot a MOOSE. There were plenty of moose and trappers harvested wolves and hunters harvested spring bears and laws were based on science and time-proven management practices. During this time the powers that be were the Ontario Lands and Forests, later changed to Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR). Recently renamed Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.  Much has changed over the past two decades within what I once considered Ontario`s flagship ministry, for without our rich resources what does Ontario have to offer?

I have been deeply concerned about the direction this ministry has been travelling for some years now as laws are now being based on emotion and driven by special interest and protectionist lobby groups.<<<Read More>>>

It Now Costs Us Money to Not Use Renewable Energy

wake-up-americaThere are two things to point out about this link to what is being despicably displayed as a “study”. It’s a farce and should anger the scientific community that some organization with such a political bias, driven by agendas that will pad one’s wallet, makes a complete mockery of the scientific process and scholarship. But, that is what has transpired in our society; an outcome-based swindle disguised as science with no other purpose than to effect public opinion. God, it’s really all about the money, isn’t it?

The second thing is to point out is that the basis for the farcical findings of this “study”, is akin to your mother telling you that if you don’t stop playing with yourself you’ll go blind.

Here’s the farce.

My Study Suggests Republicans Cause Decreased Amounts of Snowfall

The title above suggests that perhaps the author has lost his mind, or to some they might think he is starting to get it back. Regardless, even I’ll admit that perhaps making the conclusion that republicans cause less snow is ridiculous.

In my “study”, I’m “suggesting” that my observations are that republicans in Maine took over the Blaine House and Congress. In the first full year of this political reshuffling, I also witnessed the fact that the Pine Tree State has seen very little snow. Therefore, I’m “suggesting” from my “study” that it must be republicans that cause decreased amounts of snowfall.

Utterly ridiculous isn’t it……..well, unless of course you are a global warming cultist. (It’s a given that GW cultists hate republicans too.)

Such should be the case in a recent “study” that “suggests” that increased levels of mercury in the Northeast caused a handful of songbirds to stop reproducing. According to JunkScience, the study is junk science.

All the researchers did in this first-of-its-kind study was to correlate mercury levels with claimed reproductive failure in a small number of wrens — without taking any other measurements or observations of any other substances and/or conditions. They set out to blame mercury and, lo and behold, they succeeded (sic).

So, the next time you are gazing at your bird feeder and see a wren or two, know that there would have been more wrens in your feeder if republicans hadn’t taken the political advantage in Maine.
