Meet the latest phony "endangered species": Sumatran Orangutans!



We have great news! Sumatran Orangutans, long thought to be an endangered species, actually aren't. Or maybe they are. Liberals are having trouble keeping up with their lies and inaccuracies to justify "endangered species".

First of all, if Sumatran Orangutans disappeared tomorrow, we'd have no more Organgutans... except for thousands of Bornean Orangutans, who are almost identical. This is one of the games that the leftist environmentalists play. If there are 500 kinds of monkeys, but the left handed cleft jaw kind is endangered, it's considered a distinct species even though it is almost identical to the 499 kinds of monkeys.

But the Sumatran Orangutans, thought to be endangered, aren't nearly so endangered as once thought:

The Sumatran orangutans’ total population was previously estimated at 6,600 individuals. But in a new study published Friday in the journal Science Advances a team of 12 scientists from the UK, the Netherlands, Indonesia, the US and Germany disagree with this figure – they say a population of 14,613 exist as of 2015.

And while this is good news, it’s not time to celebrate yet. Sumatran oranguatan populations have not increased, but rather been previously miscalculated.

You see, leftist environmentalists will never accept good news about an "endangered species".

In their recent study, the study’s authors surveyed habitats previously overlooked as orangutan habitats. Individuals were found at 1,500 meters above sea level, in previously logged areas and west of the Tobas Lake: three habitats that past studies had not previously evaluated.

Well, here's a thought: if they missed thousands in another location, probably there could be thousands more at other locations they haven't looked at. There could be hundreds of thousands of these apes. We don't even know if they're really endangered at all.

“If we project orangutan losses due to deforestation [with the new population numbers] there is not difference there,” Wich tells The Monitor. “They were always probably more widespread than we thought. And some of those areas that we hadn’t gone to, they probably had orangutans that are now gone.”

“It is therefore very important that these results are not interpreted as indicating that Sumatran orangutan numbers have increased, nor that their range has expanded,” the researchers explain in their paper. “Since 2004, Sumatran orangutan numbers have undoubtedly declined, and they continue to do so at an alarming rate because of ongoing deforestation and poaching/persecution.”

So, they haven't measured the numbers accurately, but if they had measured accurately, they say they would have measured a decline in Orangutan numbers. This from the guys who missed 8,000 orangutans in the first place.

Leftist environmentalists will say anything to convince us to deindustrialize. Like global warming hoaxers, they lose all credibility when they not only ignore the unreliability of their animal counts but claim their very unreliability shows how "endangered" these animals really are.

Supreme court only finds laws unduly burdensome when they relate to abortion


When evaluating laws, courts rarely find them too burdensome on Americans. Take laws (or regulations) mandating coal power plants be shut down. Or laws requiring every one to have health insurance. Or laws requiring businesses to provide health insurance, or comply with ridiculous EPA regulations regarding ponds in backyards or protecting snails on lawns. None of these are considered too burdensome on Americans. Unless they relate to abortion.
