GR:  Lot’s of worthwhile comments for this one.  Here’s mine:  “Squirrels improve soils, beaver reduce flooding, and both species feed predators.  Dynamic balance occurs.  What can balance humans?”

  1. Not sure i like how this national story has made squirrels and beavers in the culprits of climate change…. Pass the buck …. lol But it is fascinating how natural animal behaviours are exacerbating climate change affects through no fault of their own. I think we are going to find many more postive feedback affects in the coming years where we wouldn’t expect to.
