Environmentalists will make something like this an issue, and as a regional problem they are likely correct. However, they will also have a problem with a lack of grazing animals and wild fires to help promote savanna and prairie habitat in those regions where they are known historically. Although it is not common knowledge, before European contact, Native Americans used management practices to enhance the environment and optimize their hunting and gathering life style.

Of course the natural environment is entirely screwed up and it's my contention that these problems can be traced back to the government allowing it to happen in the first place. I believe if you traced back all environmental problems to their origins, it was the government not only allowing it to happen, but encouraging it in most cases as well.

But would you feel the same way if it was the worlds largest living thing? (it's a fungus)

More precisely, a specific honey fungus measuring 2.4 miles (3.8 km) across in the Blue Mountains in Oregon is thought to be the largest living organism on Earth.

This is the way it has always been. Life dies off, new life will arise.

I can't remember the exact number, but the Earth has been through extinction level events before. Life always finds a way.


Life WILL find a way.

We may not be among it though.



That is very true. I for one believe that nature will make the right choice for itself.

Nature makes no choices. It just follows the rules.

People on the other hand...

Yes. But that doesn't make you right. That just makes you clever.

Odd statement. How do you think people are on this planet? We are either created by nature or by an external force (God or aliens etc.). If there is another idea what is it?

I doubt it is dying, more like shrinking, and its not the largest like some have said.

But anyways trees die and are replaced, so has every single organism that has ever walked, swam, crawled, flown, dug, rooted, jumped, flowed, and you name it on this planet. Eventually humans to will go extinct and be replaced. The circle of life and all, goes on.

It is the way of things.
