Rob Wielgus, one of America’s pre-eminent experts on large carnivores, had no idea how unpopular he could get until he began to study wolves. His academic reputation is now in shreds.
Rob Wielgus was one of America’s pre-eminent experts on large carnivores. Then he ran afoul of the enemies of the wolf.

That’s actually not true. Just ask the elk population that’s down 80 percent since these 31 wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone.

It's 100% true. They kill what they need. The population will equilize. People who hunt elk for fun might not like this but who cares? Sport hunting is barbaric anyway.

🤔 Lmao. He shouldn’t have made a claim he can’t support. He lied about the rancher’s intentions. That’s both slander and libel. I’m so glad that piss poor “research” quit.

Don't get me wrong, I agree. But let's not kid ourselves that the left doesn't also have issues with anti-science views with respect to nuclear energy, GMOs, and vaccines

Sure, some dudes somewhere who are classified as left think that, but not ones who run congressional or gubernatorial offices or the US executive branch.

Those of us with a lick of sense, and an appreciation of science, have no problem with any of those. People that shit on GMOs probably have no idea what a banana used to look like, or how corn used to taste. Better tasting, healthier, drought resistant crops aren’t bad. 🙄

None of that is supported by liberal political leaders. Most of the pushback against anti-vaxxers and other science denialists comes from liberals. Whereas conservatives are all in on climate-change denial, young-earth creatiinism, etc.

But plants engineered to allow the use of glyphosate ARE.

Anti-vaxxers aren't predominantly left or right tbh. That particular idiocy is apparently fairly distributed.

The plant being poison resistant isn’t bad in itself anymore than we are for being able to resist disease thanks to vaccination. The poison itself is bad, not the plant. Come on.

The plant was engineered specifically to resist the poison so the poison could be used in great quantities. With all the knock on effects that has on soil and ecosystem. Come on.

My point is — the argument that they only kill to eat is false.

The left doesn’t have a monopoly on anti-vaxx nonsense, sorry to burst your bubble.
