  •  alas the world is a complex place (0+ / 0-)

    Everything is tied to everything else. There are no loose threads in the web of life.

    "Simplicity" appeals only to the simple-minded.  ;)

    In the end, reality always wins.

    •  that complexity, btw, is precisely why ecology is (0+ / 0-)

      such a subversive science . . .

      If we want to save butterflies, or manatees, or whales, or whatever other animals people think as cute and cuddly, we must literally change the way our entire society is run.

      A rather large undertaking--but one that is absolutely necessary.  ;)

      In the end, reality always wins.
