    It is an interesting hypothesis, hardly something that is established science. But it does demonstrate the kind of connections one sees in nature.

    No,

    It shows the ludicrous levels the AGW cultists will go to blame man. Imagine that we've been screwing mother Earth since we learned how to use tools! That's it. Eliminate all teh tools and the world will calm down, yeah that's the ticket.

    Well, that is what a dingbat like you would read into that article. Had it been another efficient predator, the result would be the same. Just as the re-introduction of wolves in Yellowstone brought back the stands of willow along the creeks there, you poke mama nature in one place, you see results in another, often unexpected, place.

    And here I thought the willows coming back was from being replanted after the fires. One of my colleagues was heavily involved in the replanting, but wolves you say? Who knew!
