Greenie morons

It seems that even if you are a highly qualified scientist with a great big pile of academic credentials, there is something about being a greenie that causes your brains to dribble out your ears as slime.

There is an ecological crisis on Macquarie Island:

In an accelerating one-two hit, exploding rabbit numbers are denuding Macquarie’s hills of soil-stabilising megaherbs and tussock fields, exposing ground-nesting birds and new seeds to the ravages of rats and mice.

Along with the flora, at least 24 bird species, 12 of them classified as threatened, are under attack.

So why, you may ask, are they under attack now.

Because the brilliant scientists managing the island wiped out the cats. The cats had kept the rabbits and rats down.

When you wipe out the top predator, what do you think is going to happen?
