Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

Here's an idea most biologists will hate

My sister is a biologist. She has ranted on and off about invasive species and such similar things. I thought of that when I found this article. Big Game Imports to summarize, some researchers think that it would be a good idea to introduce many animals from the african savannahs to the great plains of the US. Why you ask? Because they think these animals could fill the ecological spots formerly filled by mamoths, sabertooth tigers, and similar extinct creatures, and provide a new enviroment for the endagered species of Africa. A further benefit would be to provide an increase in tourism to the currently economicaly depressed areas of the great plains. Of course one can expect ranchers and farmers to be a tad leery of releasing lions and elephants to roam the plains. Interesting idea but I see issues.....

"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!

How about bringing back the buffalo, and other things that actually belong there?

Good except for the slight issues. Besides what animal wants to leave Africa for Nevada?

Well, the spammers have finally found me. I have to wonder about the value of a cedar tree with no oils or sap inthe wood though.....

Buffalo would be good, the lions need something to eat. Besides Angus beef.

Im not sure elephants would be a good idea-

They will soon outbreed their living area and will need to be culled.

Then animal rights activists will drag the issue out in court for YEARS and soon Washington will resemble the Jungle Book, full of elephants roaming the streets while the issue gets debated.

In the meantime, they destroy your vegetation as they do and fill your streets and plains in poop.

SOUNDS FUN, NO?

I agree with at80 This idea sounds good in theory, but...I just don't know. I don't think the animals will adapt, and I'm one for the animals. I'm not for shipping them any and everywhere for tourism.

but I am for reproducing and upping their numbers.
