Yes, let's shut down industrial society so that a couple of manatees have food.
All property should be privately owned. If you want to own a useless, mosquito-infested swamp and do nothing with it except breed insects, go for it. Leave the rest us alone to actually carve out a livable space with our property.
maybe you were absent on the day the geo-eco-pyramid food chain was presented but EVERYTHING has a purpose and ALL living things are connected = sometimes delicately so
i know = screw the MANATEE because they don't vote = i get that
but what of the UNintended consequences ? how livable will your property be if ecological arrmegeddon results in dirty water, unbreathable air and toxic foods ?
compare HAITI and DOMINICAN REPUBLIC and you can see the drastic differences on a single island (go look on google earth and see a mud hole vs a lush tropical paradise)
