Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

If We Need More Biodiversity…

… we need more human activity.

It's interesting how many of the crises that leftists are concerned about can be best handled by doing the exact opposite of everything they recommend.

I've long been amused (darkly) how leftists both embrace evolution and hate "invasive species".

Look, if the Asian Carp is better than the native equivalent, isn't that - to reuse a phrase - "evolution in action"?

Prehuman Europe was pretty much a monoculture: a forest of birch and oak from the Alps to the Baltic. Prehuman North America was a similar monoculture of oaks and elms. Pretty much every "natural, unspoiled" landscape is the work of human hands.

Quinn's First Law: "Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent."

As a rule of thumb, it seems to work quite well.
