I’ve had dealings with environmental extremists in the past and can say that those that I dealt with had NO sense of reality or valid science. They failed to understand that a given amount of land can only support so many animals and when that number is exceeded, as many as two-thirds to three-quarters of all of the animals on the land end up dying from starvation and/or disease.

They go to court to fight for the rights of a river and for the right to murder unborn children, proving that they have no sense of right and wrong and have warped values.
