Save the Barred Owl

The population of Barred Owls in Oregon has little to do with the low population of Spotted Owls. Killing the Barred Owl will not increase the amount of habitat available to Spotted Owls whose population is limited by the loss of old growth forests. Not only would this action be expensive and futile, the ramifications of killing these owls is not understood. Don't shoot first and ask questions later.

      Instead of trying to be responsible for all the problems in the world, we should take on what we love and care about. Then we honor both our inner world and the outer world at the same time. There’s no separation between the two, and there is no hesitation, no self-doubt. This will help us develop great faith that others are taking care of their piece. People who don’t know the details about climate change may care deeply about the forests, the animals, and the children. It is very important that we share, not only our merit, but also the responsibilities. Somehow we have to relieve ourselves of the enormity, which is so debilitating.

      Let Mother Nature sort this out....human intervention often leads to "unintended consequences".

      This show the crony capitalism the federal government enters into with large private corporations and the utter incompetence it displays in "managing" our environment.
