baumerman77 Posted September 22, 2015 Share Posted September 22, 2015 The fact is extinction is the norm. Albeit, human encroachment has likely exacerbated extinction and population decline in many species. The science is far too difficult to make concrete predictions on effects of the cull, but should that stop the government from proceeding? Maybe, maybe not. If we agree that we want to preserve species, for whatever reasons, we will have to make decisions like these. If we agree that we don't want to preserve species then there are no decisions. If the latter is chosen, it is important to note that it isn't just "nature taking its course". Human's have already corrupted "nature" (from a natural state) and thus we would just be deciding to not take corrective action. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
