Much as it comes as a shock to them, greenie playtime is over. You can only scream “crisis” and “humans are evil” so long before said humans get tired of paying you to act against their interests.
I think we can expect a lot more greenie-dominated departments to be downgraded or eliminated across the Western world as it rediscovers reality and human social responsibility. The rise of citizen fact-checking and the return of press freedom through internet communication is loosening the misanthropes’ stranglehold on mainstream publishing. Democracy will once more push antisocial neo-Malthusians into historical obscurity where they belong.
Canada’s only marine mammal toxicologist at the Institute of Ocean Sciences on Vancouver Island is losing his job as the federal government cuts almost all employees who monitor ocean pollution across Canada.
Peter Ross, an expert on killer whales and other marine mammals, was the lead author of a report 10 years ago that demonstrated Canada’s killer whales are the most contaminated marine mammals on the planet. He has more than 100 published reports.
Now, he’s a casualty of federal budget cuts, one of 75 people across Canada told Thurs-day his services will no longer be needed because the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is closing the nation’s contaminants program.
In total, 1,075 people working for the Department of Fisheries received letters Thursday telling them that their jobs will be redundant or affected – including 215 in the Pacific Region.
