No not at all. It is interesting that Mr Cherubini left out the evidence
from the page he quoted that activities were going on which anyone
who has studied grassland ecology knows REDUCES biodiversity.
He uses words like a drunk uses a lamp-post more for support than for
And before any of his "butterfly militia" friends have a go at me
remember we are taking of a guy who has repeatedly made statements which
facilitate that EXTINCTION of certain types of butterfly.
Extinction means that NOBODY will ever see these butterflies AGAIN.
Putting it simply I believe this is wrong.
