Interconnections of Life’s Forces

“No dogma taught by the present civilization seems to form so insuperable an obstacle in the way of a right understanding of the relations which culture sustains to wildness, as that which declares that the world as made especially for the uses of men. Every animal, plant, and crystal controverts it in the plainest terms. Yet it is taught from century to century as something ever new and precious, and in the resulting darkness the enormous conceit is allowed to go unchallenged.”

John Muir (Overland Monthly, April 1875)

Science Teachers Release Non-Natives Into Waterways

Interesting findings by Oregon State University Prof. Sam Chan. When her queried some 2,000 teachers that had run science projects that required the release of the studied critters after the completion of the project…many released them into their immediate environment. Problem is they maybe should not be in that environment.

Apparently, wildlife officials had been baffled by Lousiana crayfish being found in N.E. Oregon waters. Crayfish, gold fish, assorted other non-native-invasive species have been released in that feel good moment by the students and teachers. Now, vendors of critters to science project teachers are releasing instructions to ‘clueless’ teachers on how to dispose of the critters. (Oregonian article by Ian Campbell)

Well, at least our Invasive Gold Fish populations are thriving.

Fish Habitat Requires Women to Foresake Birth Control!!!

Hot Raw Sewage by Trey Ratcliff at http://www.sprol.com

“Of course, scientists and environmental groups alike are very careful to avoid making recommendations for restricting artificial contraceptives. (Oh, well yes, we want to be careful)

As we all know, most of us would not take kindly to the suggestion of restricting or banning hormonal contraceptives. In today’s modern world, it has become not just an issue of economic necessity, but also an issue of personal choice and freedom.”

“There is mounting, creditable research and evidence that documents this contamination. This contamination is beginning to have significant affects on the reproductive function and is feminizing fish and other wildlife.”

(Don’t even start….!)
