Bad Science got Worse.

Scientific American June, 2007 page 126: An article titled –Restoring American Big, Wild Animals – illustrates just how bad science is becoming. This story is like a very bad B movie of the 1930’s. Apparently in the fall of 2004 a dozen conservation biologists gather on a ranch in New Mexico to ponder a idiotic plan to introduce large mammals back into North America. These mammals died out 13,000 years ago. Where are they going to get these large mammals? Africa. They want to bring in the lions, cheetahs and elephants and let them loose on the American continent. Any of these conservation biologist study what happened when rabbits were introduced into Australia?

They believe that this will be good because it will restore biodiversity (NPR has a paper in process on biodiversity) and important ecological processes, such as predation to the ecosystem. The state further that large animals exercise a disproportional effect on the environment. They certainly do. The elephants are destroy thousands of square miles of forest land. We have deer and bears in our back yards now. We are reintroducing and protecting wolves into areas were they are not needed. What we need is lions and tigers and bears?

The argument for this madness is that top predators are important to cull the herds of other species. Hello, what is the top predator on the planet? Man! If man was doing his job we wouldn’t have herds to cull. Why is the top predator not doing its job? Because other humans have artificially protected these species from predation through legal action.

How can lions be turned loose on the central plains of this continent? The Endangered Species Act. This piece of legislation is the worst legislation ever passed on this planet since the Romans legislated that π should be 3.00. It is written in such general terms that it can be interpreted in anyway those in power want. What is worse it is a regulatory law, which places the power in the hands of non elected regulators. The people of the country have no say in what is to be done, except to repeal that law.
