Comments on: U.S. hunters, anglers weigh in on climate change http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/10/14/us-hunters-anglers-weigh-in-on-climate-change/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: f belz http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/10/14/us-hunters-anglers-weigh-in-on-climate-change/comment-page-1/#comment-342610 Sat, 24 Oct 2009 16:11:25 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=14308#comment-342610 I do not think we have even begun to address the change that the population has effected on the earth. We see only our country, but other countries have a large increase in population and the forest is still being cut in many countries. I predict that we will see less people on the earth due to sickness and food shortages. I also believe that we can run our cars without gasoline or diesel and we can also run our power plants without coal or natural gas.

Now that we’re out of another sunspot cycle, let’s see what happens to temperatures. Oh… and, by the way, Lindsey Graham may be positioning himself as a moderate to run for president (or he’s just stupid). Just ask the other brilliant climate change scientist John McCain, who also positioned himself as a climate change believer shortly before running for president. Fortunately, the American public won’t be buying another cap-and-tax pseudo-conservative. In fact, it might be time for a Libertarian.

Kind of like when I broke my arm, I went to a Doctor not an Anthropologist.

All I see from them is poaching and a disregard for property rights. Climate change is real, ask the wildlife.

The National Audubon Society’s senior scientists analyzed 40 years of Christmas Bird Count data and found that 58% of the 305 species that winter in the US have shifted signigficantly north and inland. This does not bode well for birds that use marshes, tundra, prairies. Audubon connects this shift to global warming from manmade causes. When food sources shift north and inland and there is an aberrant colder than usual winter, food sources are affected and birds decline. The American Black Duck is wintering 182 miles further north and inland, while the Common Merganser is wintering 106 miles further north and inland and the Northern Pintail, 91 miles. Another game species, the Northern Bobwhite (Quail) is wintering 85 miles further north and inland.Ann ShahidImportant Bird Area CoordinatorClimate and Energy Outreach CoordinatorAudubon SC

But given that Reuters just got punked over a fake press release regarding climate change and the US Chamber of Commerce, I had to assume that a heavily-accented “Clinch Heyward” was fake too. But I just called the SCWL and talked to some fast-talker with Lowcountry accent named “Steve.” (steve @ scwf.org)He, Steve of the SCWF, said he DID indeed work for rich-pants Clinch, who likely works hard shooting things mostly. I imagine they at the SCWF trot out old Duncan Clinch Heyward to give Reuters boy reporters a good show. Then they stick him back out in the swamp and let him blast away into air.

You got so gamed! I smell a SC native-rat behind all this. One with loads of media experience in pulling-off fake news ya-ya. From SC. Now that should narrow down the field so freakin’ far that even a Reuters reporter could figure it out.

Of course that statement is true. How about asking this question and seeing what the response is: “We won’t improve the environment or strengthen the economy by investing in renewable energy technologies that do not create jobs or reduce global warming.”

We can do nothing and have the ice caps melt, the deserts massively expand, populations starve and people fight each other desperately for scarce land and water. Or, we could be wise. Your choice. But be warned, we all might just get the world we deserve.

Would the deniers ignore doctors’ reports on what’s harming their kids and not buy the prescription to make them healthier?
