Starts his own war in Iraq.

ANIMAL WELFARE AND SPECIES

CATEGORY:  SPECIES — 31.MAR.2014

Rating: 3 of 5 - Good, worth a listen Living On Earth

The Extreme Life of the Sea — Life in the ocean is a longstanding mystery to most humans. Even with modern technology, we're still learning new things about the ocean. A new book, The Extreme Life of the Sea, sheds an entertaining and informative light on some of the oceanís oldest, oddest, fiercest and strangest creatures. Coauthor and biologist Steve Palumbi discusses the work.

GP comment:  It's a bit sad that Palumbi has to try to bring a Discovery Channel-style level of hyper-excitement to the topic to get us interested. Nonetheless, these species ARE interesting.

FBI Goes Non-Linear on Animal Rights Activists — Over the past decade, Ryan Shapiro has become a leading freedom of information activist, unearthing tens of thousands of once-secret documents. His work focuses on how the government infiltrates and monitors political movements, in particular those for animal and environmental rights. Today, he has around 700 Freedom of Information Act requests before the FBI, seeking around 350,000 documents. That tenacity has led the Justice Department to call him the "most prolific" requester there is and claim his dissertation research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology would "irreparably damage national security." Shapiro discusses his methodology in obtaining government documents through FOIA requests, and the details that have emerged therein about the crackdown on animal rights activists.

GP comment:  The point here is not how you feel about animal cruelty or whether we should eat meat. The essential issue is that the government is now prosecuting minor civil-disobediance crimes with a vengance and suppressing free speech and public information when it threaten's one of their client corporation's bottom lines. Remember, fascism always creeps upon a populace slowly, starting with marginal issues and players.

The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to Extinction — At one time, there were 3-5 billion passenger pigeons in the US, with some flocks large enough that their passing through an area could take days. Joel Greenberg, author of A Feathered River Across the Sky, discusses the reasons that the passenger pigeons were hunted, the intentional misinformation that allowed hunting to continue in the face of plummeting pigeon numbers, and the analogs of the pigeons' fate to pressures on species today.

GP comment:  The relevance to today should not be underestimated. Many of our favorite wild food species have populations (and average sizes) that are way down from their highs.
