Tick Intoxicated

Greetings and Salutations,

We certainly live in a era of convenience. At a drop of a hat we can travel the World, hire cars and be hundreds if not thousands of kilometres away. Your article on "tick intoxicated' was wonderful and it illustrated how easy it has become to generate tons of greenhouse gases on a whimsy. Bully for the enthusiasts. It is wonderful to read about people that are passionate about a checklist but indifferent about the well-being of our planet.

Do not get me wrong, we need sensible Eco-tourism. People that pack in hundreds of birds and beasts on a single checklist on a single safari/trip/excursion. But I am stupefied by so-called obsessive behaviour to stampede across the countryside for the purpose of ticking off one bird. Currently we are hosting Cop17. There is all sorts of dire reports for this planet. Everyone must wake-up and realize that "THIS IS THE ONLY PLANET WITH CHOCOLATE OR GOLDEN PIPITS" we have to be rational about what we do.

Unique bird sightings like this should be monitored by webcam where twitchers can go on line to twitch and tick. Such wanting destruction of our (my) Planet must stop. Articles like you have published must stop. Articles with a list of name of those that registered to go on line to twitch a lifer must be published so we can show a little solidarity for our (my) Planet. The time has come and is almost gone for us to reverse greenhouse damage, we all need to 'wake-up and smell the coffee" or we will not be able to "stop and smell the roses".

Hasta la vista
