  1. Scientists or activists? One of the two is suppose to be objective, I will let you guess which…

  2. Do they get to mate with more females when they achieve bigger numbers? Or more virgins in heaven?

  3. “About timing … Joe, we are partly in the hands of WWF here. They are
    putting money up to organise this and make sure the press come along and their view at present is late Nov. I will wait for their formal response, but I’m inclined to take their advice on this. They are the experts here ….

    smoking gun IMHO….

  4. wwf …. JUST A BUNCH OF ECO-ZEALOTS.
