Narrow Minded Zealots
The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is home to some 350,000 people who live and work in the 23 counties that comprise the ecosystem. A very small but vocal and well funded group of this population (the Eco-Tally-Ban) is not happy we are utilizing our area's abundant natural resources to make our living and want us to stop.
Ranching, farming, logging, forest recreation, residential construction and tourist facilitation is the target of these green activists that have deemed us trespassers in the land of the animal and tree.
Human nature provides a mental mechanism (guilt) that sometimes retroactively provides a knee jerk reaction from perceived wrong doings. There are people all over America who believe they have fouled their nest and knee jerk compulsion demands reaction that doesn't effect their community and pocketbook but does harbor a rationalization of redemption. It is these people that fund the few altruistic but egocentric Eco-Tally-Ban hell bent on ruining the economy of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem by putting what they perceive as offenders of nature out of business and out of jobs.
Altruism is a wonderful thing if not perverted into a destructive weapon by narrow minded zealots that are more concerned by their perceptions and feelings than by facts. Junk science, lies and alarmist Chicken Little tactics are the weapons of the Eco-Tally-Ban and a misinformed and duped populace is their co-conspirators and constituency.
Zealots lacking human empathy who are over funded by a guilt ridden, misinformed, and gullible populace creates a dynamic that facilitates a tyranny of the absent and ignorant.
We have been surviving off the land and the people that visit it since the 1890's, if we wish to continue to do so we must stand together and address the allegations of the environmental propagandists that hope to put an end to our way of life. It will be an up hill battle because mundane facts dont incite excitement and fervor as does the alarmist inflammatory hyperbole of the environmental left but with the facts on our side we can prevail if we stand together united.

Grampa Dave has an entire collection of outstanding GANG-GREEN terrorist names, similar to Eco-Tally-Ban. They're so good I hope he comes here and lists them. Heck, they aren't even copyrighted as far as I know. Are they Dave?
I just don't wanna hafta start payin him royalties! (grin)
How well we know when SUV's are banned
only Sierra Club members will have SUV's.
Anacephalics styling themselves environazis are a universal scourge.
Their only nonhypocritical action would be suicide.
Are you actually saying that just because some people tell really scary stories that we should beleive them? I don't think so. They contradict themselves constantly. Every few years "most of them" have a different story to tell.
Over a twenty year span they've gone from a big temperature drop to a big temperature rise to a rise that maybe isn't not so much. Why should I take "them" seriously? I mean it's certainly not wise to rely absolutely on just one man that contests the results found by the whole community.
You say that it's not wise to rely on just one man. Well, shoot, this one man is simply protesting about the whole situation around Yellowstone.
The "whole community" is decidedly not in agreement. Ecofreaks and Big Media like to make a big deal about how thousands of scientists have signed this or that to say that they are worried about climate change. Well, when the names are checked out, most of the people who signed these pieces are not climat specialists and many of them are not even researchers at all. It's also not at all true that the whole community of clime specialists agree on the subject of global warming. In fact, a little less than half of the actual researchers even agree that there may be a problem. Less than that agree that humanity has anything to do with it.
Fortunately, our new governor has promised to take party status away from interest groups in environmental issues. Individuals may file grievances but groups like the Public Research Interest Group will no longer be able to hold up projects for decades.
Can you add me to your ping list?
Vote early and vote often.
And that "terminal virus" is unfounded FEARS! It gives ignorant people a bad case of the "TERMINAL STUPIDS!"
And oh brother... is it ever contageous with the media spreading it!!!
It is happening everywhere. I would like to see all regional green opposition groups band together under an umbrella organization and name it sometning like "The Rural Folk Preservation Society"where we could have enough money and clout to shut up the liars.
The AP picks up stories from the green lobbies in Washington where they all have offices and the Washington AP tag in the liberal press makes their propaganda look ligitamate. If the "The Rural Folk Preservation Society" could maintain an office there also press releases would more likely be picked up and ran nationally.
