Evidently Global Warming is Causing More Moose in Connecticut

…Or something.

Ridgefield, Connecticut, where I have heard that at Trick or Treat time, butlers, dressed in black tie and tails, answer the door presenting the greedy little monsters with one-pound Hershey bars on a silver platter, is considering difficulties in what to do with a growing moose population.

Oh, the confusion!

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive…or maybe it’s partly due to the lack of an honest education and the failure to gain truthful understanding. But, that doesn’t sell copies much.

The Ridgefield Press runs a story that first claims that in history regarding the moose, “the natives killed only what they absolutely needed.” Such conservationist purists those Native Americans were…in our garbage-filled minds. Were these the same conservationist purists natives that ran buffalo over cliffs just for the fun of it? No, I guess there were no buffalo in Connecticut back when, in our ignorant eyes, everything was perfect, meticulously cared for, i.e. the ultimate in “sustainability.” The natives must have called it Agenda 17?

I don’t want to miss the bigger false picture here. Moose are commonly found today in places like Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Idaho, and yes, I’m sure I’ve offended somebody because I didn’t mention their state. In all of those states, we are told that moose are dying due to global warming climate change.

Today, we learned that the Constitution State – Connecticut – has a moose herd numbering 120 and growing. Some of those moose have wandered into the town of Ridgefield.

The article seems to attribute the regrowth of moose in Connecticut to an end of farming and logging. That there are now dense forests in parts of Connecticut, seems to be the reason given that moose are returning – no thought about the actual habitat and whether it is conducive to growing moose. Nope, if there are trees all animals will live and thrive. It’s in a book somewhere.

In just about every state that has moose in them – these are all northern states -, officials say that moose are on the very southern fringe of their range and that because of global warming (they like to hide behind the term climate change now) the moose are dying out and/or moving north to colder climes. In addition, some of these same northern states, in order to take full advantage of free money (wink, wink). research is being conducted on the moose and how winter ticks contribute to their demise. Of course, an upsurge in winter ticks is caused by…you guessed it, global warming climate change.

I suppose that biologists steer clear of any consideration of loss of moose due to predators, because there’s no money in it and they have yet to make a global warming climate change connection between predators and the killing of moose. It will come though. It’s only a matter of time.

Global warming Climate change, we are told, is killing our moose, partly because, we are told, the moose in the Lower 48 are at their southern fringe of existence. The same biologists tell us that the whitetail deer in places like Maine, are at their northern fringe of suitable habitat. Water in a river can’t run in both directions, no more that global warming climate change can be responsible for killing moose, while at the same time not causing the deer herd to thrive. It’s only common sense.

Moose in Connecticut, according to the experts, are far south of their “southern fringe.” According to information in this article, environmentalists drove out all the farmers and put an end to logging, and the result is more moose – apparently with no consideration for global warming climate change.

Now just how can that be?
