Stupid is as Stupid Does

Oregroanian March 3, 2007 page E1: “While the hungry sea lions below Bonneville Dam await the salmon course, they’re going wild for the sturgeon appetizer.”

Hello! Seven years ago, the paper on Saving Salmon pointed out that protected species kill 500 million salmon a year. See “Saving Salmon” on the archive page. There are considerably more of these protected species today and the kill number has risen. In the years since 1999, we have had a growth in the number of returning salmon based on improved conditions in the ocean. These increases only produce an increase in predators. In nature, there is a definite connection between food supply and sex.

The hard truth is if we want to have salmon, we need to responsibly reduce the number of predators that consume them. Further, the misplaced morality of allowing sea lions, seals and sea birds to gorge on salmon, while millions of people on the planet are starving escapes me. I know the seals have cute faces and big brown eyes, but have you ever looked into the eyes of a starving child. Where are the values of the US citizen?

The endangered species act; the Sierra Club’s and the Audubon Society’s narrow minded and irresponsible 19th century approach to world problems is disgusting and these organizations and the endangered species act have outlived their usefulness in a changing world. What was good when we had 2 billion people on the planet is not the same as what is good with 7 billion people on the planet. Times change and so do needs. The endangered species act needs serious revision, and the Sierra club, and Audubon society need to get out of the 18th century and into the 21st century.
