Science is quoted by the Neanderthals of the Political Right when they want to kill, kill, kill and ignore the extinction, extinction, extinction of all living creatures.
Global Warming is for some fool stupid enough to be born now and hold the bag and have to deal with the lack of foresight and lack of humanity of adolescent males and their guns and their other male bonding masturbation toys in the instance of guns and bullets - the usual left over from the dark ages Gun Masturbation.
The burning of fossil fuels that are killing the oceans and the future breath of all life on this planet seems to be in the hands of people with money jerking off with their toys and getting drunk and killing first animals and later by default their progeny if any.
DALLAS (Oct. 25, 2013)—Dallas Safari Club (DSC) recently announced plans to auction a black rhino hunting permit on behalf of the Government of the Republic of Namibia. The hunt will bring biological and financial benefits to rhino conservation in a developing nation. Though it may seem counterintuitive to critics, the hunt is being sanctioned by scientists around the world as helpful to the future of a rare species.
“First and foremost, this is about saving the black rhino,” said Ben Carter, DSC executive director. “There is a biological reason for this hunt, and it’s based on a fundamental premise of modern wildlife management: populations matter; individuals don’t. By removing counterproductive individuals from a herd, rhino populations can actually grow.”
And, of course, the hunt also could generate a million dollars for rhino conservation efforts.
London (CNN) -- Africa's western black rhino is now officially extinct according the latest review of animals and plants by the world's largest conservation network.
The subspecies of the black rhino -- which is classified as "critically endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species -- was last seen in western Africa in 2006.
The IUCN warns that other rhinos could follow saying Africa's northern white rhino is "teetering on the brink of extinction" while Asia's Javan rhino is "making its last stand" due to continued poaching and lack of conservation.
