Historic claims to bird poop have led to conflict in the past and when the commodity is in such high demand, strategic and economic factors can escalate that conflict into war! Previous agreements on territory and shared revenue failed and thus begin the Poop Wars did.

War 239

Wildlife Rehabilitator War Wounds

10,000 Birds

Injured wildlife are not the most cooperative of patients. Most of them think we’re trying to eat them, not help them. Frightened and defensive, they react accordingly. Wildlife rehabilitators have an arsenal of equipment and techniques we use to protect ourselves. Gloves (some lined with Kevlar), goggles, facemasks, helmets, body padding, nets, poles … the list goes on.

Trump's currency war against Germany

Green (Living) Review

It is not so much a currency war but a trade war against Germany (and the EU) and it was not started by Trump but by Obama. This, and I know I am repeating myself, is a trade war, not a currency war, and it was not started by President Trump but by former President Obama.

War is a racket

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) War is a racket, said Maj. Butler wsaid and wrote in 1933: "In the World War ( and he was here referring to World War One. The Second World War was still a few years away) a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

War 63

Freed from fear of war and perdition

Green (Living) Review

The “war on terror” is indeed intended to be just that, a war that will never end in order to reduce the little freedoms that the people are allowed to have by the powers-that-be, but which shouldn''t be, ever more and basically create a live version of “1984”.

Man-o-war Birds

10,000 Birds

Last week I introduced the Great Frigatebird , one of five species of man-o-war bird. I got rather carried away showing all the plumages you can see around a breeding colony, which means I had to split my post on the species into two.

War 197

Nectar Wars of Tandayapa

10,000 Birds

This is the story of the nectar wars from Tandayapa Lodge in north-west Ecuador. Few living things are created perfect. But I think hummingbirds are as close to evolutionary perfection as one can get. These enchanting nectar feeders have truly mastered the art of flight like no other bird. A high metabolism and the ability to rotate their wings through 180 degrees enables these little gems to fly forward, backward and pretty much everything in between.

War 130

Twitter war!

Environmental Economics

Just call me the Darren Rovell of environmental economics. I received this comment via twitter: neither confuse big government with more efficient government, which is an even more frequent bias. The problem with that, and twitter in general, is there is little explanation for the comment. Is the tweeter saying that a benefit-cost analysis should be conducted to determine the most efficient amount of monitoring and enforcement?

Kamikaze Pigeons and a War to Extinction

One more Feral Pigeon. I am inside the city of Belgrade, checking the theoretically possible Peregrine Falcon site. Not that anyone has seen it there, but if I were a Peregrine, that would be one of the properties I would seriously consider. One Feral Pigeon. A Great Tit.

The war in Mali

Green (Living) Review

In previous wars very often it was about oil in the recent times but now more wars will be fought for the “possession” of the means of exploiting rare earths and minerals. War, as Maj. At home our governments also need those wars against terrorism as it enables them to ever more restrict the freedoms of the people at home, whether citizens or residents. by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Does it really have something to do with defeating AQ in the Maghreb?

Against the war on science

Environmental Economics

Posted by Thomas Lyon to the RESECON listserv: I suspect most of you are aware that Donald Trump has selected Myron Ebell from the Competitive Enterprise Institute (and prominent climate skeptic) to head up the EPA Transition team (and potentially become EPA Administrator).   This petition to block that move requires 96,000 signatures within a month, so please disseminate to your networks.    This move is so blatant, that a strong and immediate response is warranted.

Austerity a cover for class war against the poor

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Austerity is being used as a cover-story for class war against the poor Austerity and deficit reduction are being used as a cover-story for conducting class war against the poor as simultaneous reductions in taxes on the wealthy and cuts to spending on social security amount to a redistribution of wealth away from the poor to the rich. Thus it can be called nothing else but class war, or maybe we could even go as far to call it warfare on the poor.

The war on the homeless

Green (Living) Review

There was a time when we waged a war on poverty and not on poor people and this is not just the case in the USA. In the UK the war on homeless people has taken another twist in that it is now a serious criminal offense – felony to our American cousins – to occupy an unoccupied building and make it into a home; squatting, as it is called here.

Are we missing the point with the “war on waste”?

War 149

The "war on coal" continues

Environmental Economics

David J. Hayes and James H. Stock: CONGRESS long ago established a basic principle governing the extraction of coal from public lands by private companies: American taxpayers should be paid fair value for it. They own the coal, after all. Lawmakers set a royalty payment of 12.5 percent of the sale price of the coal in 1976. Forty years later, those payments remain stuck there, with actual collections often much less.

War is never the answer.proper pricing is

Environmental Economics

Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal.    On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed. ”. Phrasing this as a war on coal just puts people on the defensive and creates political backlash.  “Everybody is waiting for action,” [Daniel P. Schrag, a White House climate adviser and director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment] said.
