"The disease is carried by the non-native grey squirrel which is immune to its effects. Infected red squirrels die within 15 days of contracting the virus. "
poor little bastards don't stand a chance.
its a real pity, they are gorgeous, i used to see them regularly when i was a kid just at the back of my moms house, but they have become rarer and rarer. On a positive note i have a 'nest', of bees in my basement, they come in through an 'air brick', which we call it if you know anything about building. Essentially a vent, this is the second year that they have resided with us, of which i am very happy, given their plight.
I originally posted this comment in spirituality as a subject of debate, but it received no attention. It was a quotation from Al Gore, in which he stated that the present environmental crisis, is for want of a better term, a moral issue. Perhaps debates can make something of it.
The more deeply I search for the roots of the global environmental crisis, the more I'm convinced that it is the outer manifestation of an inner crisis that is, for the lack of a better word, spiritual.
Al Gore (1992, 98)
I have come to realise that what Mr Gore probable meant was moral, a moral issue, which is akin to spirituality, in some sense.
