Ain’t Nature Grand?

Amazing what about a dozen wolves can do.

About Wayne A. Schneider

I'm a Liberal, Libertarian, Atheist Humanist. I believe that though the world is a dangerous place, it can be made better if we stop dividing ourselves by how we're different from each other, and reach out to each other through what we have in common. And that is that we are all human beings on this planet. Please remember that.

  1. Beekeeping got me tuned into my environment.
    My neighbors have manicured lawns and shrubs. They treat any problem real or imagined with chemicals in a feeble attempt to tell mother nature what to do.
    It’s not working for them.
    I can easily explain bee colony collapse. It’s the pesticides and GMO’s.
    Thanks Monsanto.

  2. Back in 2003, Yale grad, Naturalist, Environmental Activist, and Wolf Fund Founder Renee Askins — who was instrumental in the Yellowstone reintroduction — wrote all about it in a book titled Shadow Mountain (Anchor Books, ISBN 0-385-48226-4). As former Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt noted, “[Askins is] a fabulous testimonial to a life of great purpose . . . how a person with a vision can change the course of history . . . without Renee Askins these wolves wouldn’t be here today.”

    In her book, Askins noted:

    “We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings, they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.”

    I couldn’t agree more.

    Meanwhile, Paul Hoffman, appointed deputy assistant secretary of the Interior in January 2002 as overseer of the National Park Service had been quoted as saying, in 1996, that the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone would be “the equivalent of detonating a nuclear bomb in the West.”

    Republicans still hate wolves, always have, always will. The Little Red Riding Hood syndrome — they do not have the mental capacity to think beyond a fairy tale. Never have, never will.

    Don’t believe me? Ask Trump (or any other soulless Republican idiot). He’ll explain it.
