Mythological Native American" - Cannibalism, Headhunting
and Human Sacrifice in North America, A History Forgotten

of edited review that appeared in the New York Property Rights
Clearinghouse Vol. 17, No. 2 (PRFA, July 2013)
Contrary to common perceptions, pre-Columbian Native Americans
were far from noble in their actions toward each other and often
had a profoundly negative impact on the environment. To try to
restore the landscape to pre-Columbian "wildlands"
is a deception.

Officials should not dismiss citizens who oppose planning

Internationalists who succeeded in getting the Adirondacks designated
a UN Biosphere Reserve in 1989 are progressing in the key Biosphere

in the Northern Rockies: What Pro-Wolf Advocates Do Not Want
You to Know" - Address by Charles E. Kay, Ph.
D., Wildlife Ecology, John M. Huntsman School of Business, Utah
State University, Address to the Sixteenth Annual National
Conference on Private Property Rights, Latham, N.Y., October
20, 2012 (Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc.)
Charles Kay's presentation ranged widely across the
many aspects of reintroducing wolves to the Northern Rockies,
and how his knowledge may be applicable to the East, where there
is talk of putting wolves in upstate New York. He repeatedly
exposed corruption of science and the ignorance of federal judges.
He took the audience through the depredations by the colonizing
wolves and the resultant near extinction of the elk, debunking
the distracting established themes from "predator-mediated
competition" to the supposed relevance of habitat.
As his talk gathered steam, he said that the wolves are now in
the process of wiping out woodland and mountain caribou across
the length and breadth of Canada. The wolf has reduced hunting
opportunities by ninety percent in the Northern Rockies, as he
predicted in 1993. Livestock losses in the West have been virtually

The redefinition of the word "environment"
by the Greens has made our environment sacred and used it as
a moral bludgeon. We must go beyond the issue of jobs and attack
the Greens on the basis that they want to stop any activity to
use our natural resources to increase our prosperity and improve
our lives. Greenism is by its intent impoverishing. Green ideologues
believe in the goodness of nature and that humans and their civilization
are a curse.

In the world of environmentalism, human beings who live in
rural areas are creatures that disturb the environment. But there
is no such thing as the balance of nature, because nature is
always changing. To get big money, the environmentalists tapped
into the foundations, which are instruments of capitalism, radically
transforming them over the past two or three decades. American
environmental groups receive $9.6 million daily in donations.

America" - By Robert J. Smith, Adjunct Environmental
Scholar, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Speech to the Ninth
Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights (PRFA,
Albany, N.Y., October 22, 2005)
Environmental scholars proposed in August 2005 to restore
the ecosystem and all the large animals that roamed North America
at the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age, replacing extinct mammals
with Asian and African counterparts, including elephants, lions,
cheetahs, camels, wild horses and a giant tortoise, while eliminating
human beings from ten states from Canada to Mexico, from the
east edge of the Rockies to just west of the Mississippi River.
This is just the latest of radical environmental proposals that
are viewed as credible and explain what the environmental leadership
