    Interestingly, MT FWP had a special session this week about the effects of global warming on the fisheries of Montana. I happened to “snag” a couple handouts and a copy of the Boone and Crockett hunting club from this summer.

    In the B&C publication there was an interesting and large portion of the magazine devoted to the history of the Forest Service and its conceptualization.

    I wasn’t able to talk to anyone but I thought it was a good idea given the serious die-off off fish in the upper elevations of Yellowstone NP this past year. It will be interesting to see what they conclude.

    I listened on C Span to the Senate energy/climate debate. There are still far too many Senators who deny “facts” and reject any & all possibilities of global climate change. Nothing happens as these fools must be appeased as they rank short term job loses more important than a potential global holocaust. It is so true that men of great wealth & “position” are not immune to the disease of mythology & irrationality.
