The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), along with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA, Department of Commerce), State, and tribal partners, are proud to present the final National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy (NFWPCAS or Strategy). The purpose of the Strategy is to inspire and enable natural resource professionals and other decision makers to take action to conserve the nation’s fish, wildlife, plants, and ecosystem functions, as well as the human uses and values these natural systems provide, in a changing climate.

http://www.wildlifeadaptationstrategy.gov/

Seven major goals in the Strategy:

1. Conserve and connect habitat

2. Manage species and habitats

3. Enhance management capacity

4. Support adaptive management

5. Increase knowledge and information

6. Increase awareness and motivate action

7. Reduce non-climate stressors

<quoted text> Buffalo, receiving the same crap back does not meet with approval, does it? Being that there are many on this board who set themselves up as judge, jury and executioner on every issue that the progressive elitists masters mandate important, just a reminder that one's own feces stinks and is expensive. Well documented and hidden from the general public today. Again, I believe the whole system is going to go at some point. Then we all will see how civil we are to each other. And a percentage of that civility will be of those who have varying different views like on these boards.
I don't mind differing views. i can take some one saying my heads up my arse, people far more qualified have said worse. I actually like the jockularity on some issue that can be debated, taxes or the stock market or what have you. At times , you engage in the give and take of politics and society.
On this I can be the judge
You said that hunting down and murdering millions of people is swell.

The why is it still a theory. Why can they not prove it?

They still can't prove it, only in theory which is just that, a scientific guess. It is like a definite maybe.
