By Charlie Fisk What are you talking about? There are thousands of new species discovered every year and thousands go extinct. We can't control that! WTF kind of stupid questions are these?

By Charlie Fisk Who is we? where in the heck did you get that convoluted math? I respect people who want to save the animals and who want to save the earth. It's a beautiful sentiment, but be realisitic. If you have a solution, I'd be very glad to hear it. Thanks and have a great day. :)
