  • the barkers (VPI) are at it again...

    dave and tracy barker are among the most respected members of the reptile community, and have been for a VERY long time (see why here)

    well, they have recently published a few papers (the longest of which is a mere 8 pages, so don't be shy )

    i would encourage you all to read them, and be enlightened by their knowledge

    the first is a paper on what's known as 'the precautionary principle,' (which is "philosophical position of proactive regulation on the
    basis of uncertainty and prediction, and in the absence
    of science,") and how it applies to S373:

    next is a review of the most recent USGS report (the BIG one about the 'big 9'):

    and, finally, regarding USARK:

      When I spoke with Tracy a few weeks ago . She said they were very busy with
      research and actively rebutting this legislation and its related resources.

      I see she made an under statement !!

            Print these out, folks, and mail them to your senators and the President. Let them see the information that is backing our fight. Let them see the other side of the story.

            Education is the key to our survival!
