Wow, show us on the doll where the evil environmentalists touched you.

I suppose the nasty ole eco-warriors are responsible for all the clear-cutting, insufficient replanting, hot prolonged droughts... and even all the recent rain in BC.

Re: Science & Technology News

Record wildfires are harming our health

With wildfires increasing in frequency, size and intensity around the world, there is fresh urgency for researchers trying to understand the health effects of smoke exposure. They are investigating why wildfire smoke is more harmful to humans than other forms of pollution; its short-term and long-term effects; who is most vulnerable; and how best to keep people safe and healthy in smoke plumes that can stretch for thousands of kilometres.

The pre eco warrior indigenous peoples knew the importance of managing forests to prevent fires. Other issues are irrelevant in this context.

Oops, should have read further along.

Pre-conquest, there was a natural fire cycle that the indigenous peoples had learned to live with. And also where to reside, and where not to. Or are you going to tell us that indigenous peoples groomed every acre of forest?

And of course post-colonization, there were no problems caused by logging, or the roads, railroads, electricity transmission, clearing for farming, increased recreational uses...no. Any fire problems? Must be eco-warriors.

Boy, your faux-conservationist pose didn't hang together very long, did it? You're no more a conservationist than I'm Amelia Erhart.

What specific strategies did sparsely populated, pre-industrial indigenous people employ, to manage forests to prevent fires?

Where do you suppose they found the fuel for their cooking and heating fires?

This explains it at a primary school level...



https://www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/Learn/...ent-Using-Fire


"Prior to colonisation, Aboriginal people would have set fires in the woodland now situated at the Australian Botanic Gardens Mount Annan to burn through prickly shrubs and dry grass, and to flush out kangaroos or wallabies in order to hunt them. After the fire, itís easier to walk through the woodland, with shrubby obstacles removed. Later, after some rain, grasses re-sprout, attracting kangaroos and wallabies to graze on the new growth and congregate in the burnt area. Fire made hunting easier and prevented bushfires from becoming the problem that they are in modern times. "

"Pre conquest". That's a new one. Did you think that up yourself?

I've always had a theory that humans descended from the trees and evolved to manage their environment with fire. Aside from language, playing with fire is the only other distinctly human trait common to all civilisations. This was supposed to be our niche in the ecological mire. Until, of course we evolved into who we are today.

Yeah, I keep forgetting that indigenous peoples just scootched over a bit to make room for foreign settlers and it's been peaceful, mutually-beneficial coexistence ever since.

[insert your Spongebob rainbow graphic here]

Except that the natives have stopped raking the whole forest, doing controlled burns, etc.

Re: Science & Technology News

Finally, the study [1] we've all been waiting for!

How to give great hugs

Researchers have tried to study what makes one hug better than another, in experimental and real-world settings, and found that hugs that last five or ten seconds are rated as more pleasurable than a single-second squeeze. And a ‘crisscross’ style, in which each hugger places one arm over the other hugger’s shoulder is the preferred form of hugging, especially in men.
