“Much environmentalism,” my brother-in-law remarks, “falls somewhere between a fad and a good idea, but there is a lot of muddled thinking that goes into the entire movement.”
Wayne Weidlich is a professorial type with a Ph.D. in botany from Duke University. His current peeve is the incandescent light bulbs that have been foisted onto the public by environmentalists and even power companies, such as NorthWestern Energy in Montana.
It would be difficult to imagine a more convoluted, mismanaged entity than the Yellowstone bison, and there is plenty of blame to go around because of it. Montana managed almost to exterminate the bison even before Montana Territory became a state in 1889. It hasn’t done much since to re-establish the species within the state. In fact, just recently, three dozen bison were transplanted from a quarantine facility in Montana to the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming, because the Montana State Legislature has made it clear that it doesn’t want free-ranging bison in Montana.
