Killing barred owls to see impact on spotted owl approved

A federal appeals court in San Francisco has upheld a plan by wildlife officials to kill one type of owl to study its effect on another type of owl.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday that the experiment by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service didn’t violate a federal law aimed at protecting migratory birds. The court says that law doesn’t prevent killing one species to advance the scientific understanding of another.

The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by advocacy groups Friends of Animals and Predator Defense challenging the agency’s plan to kill barred owls to assess their effect on the threatened northern spotted owl.

As discovered after added protections were placed on outdoor industries, the barred owl may be displacing the spotted owl in the Northwest.

This is what happens when you have people dumb enough to believe in global warming, they end up fighting each other over spotted owls.

This is what happens when you have people dumb enough to think there

is some connection between global warming and a study about different

types of owls.

Plan To Protect Spotted Owl From Global Warming Is To Wait Ten More Years

On Friday afternoon, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) quietly released its Final Recovery Plan for the Northern Spotted Owl, first listed under the Endangered Species Act in 1990 after widespread logging destroyed its old-growth forest habitat in the Pacific Northwest. The FWS estimates the plan will allow the owl to recover within 30 years, at a total cost of $489.2 million, “if all actions are implemented and effective.”

Unfortunately, that’s as big “if,” because the plan doesn’t have any global-warming response, even though its authors recognize:

    Many of the current future climate projections for the Pacific Northwest suggest the spotted owl and its habitat probably will be affected by climate change through several pathways, including but not limited to changes in fire regime; patterns of rain and snowfall; wildlife diseases; and abundance and distribution of native and nonnative species of fish, wildlife, and plants. We have begun compiling and reviewing the best-available information on this subject, and we anticipate modifications to our recovery strategy will likely be needed in the next decade.

This was from ten years ago, and they already were linking the spotted owl with the global warming scam back then. Vautrin, you're a complete idiot.

Your initial post has nothing to do with global warming, so you bring up a totally

irrelevant article from ten years ago. You're just one more right wing loony toon

who exhibits your sheer idiocy every time you post your nonsense. I trust climatologists

over clueless amateurs like you any day of the week.
