I really believe that some projects, the funders and the scientists behind them should be booted back to primary school…. These guys have managed to raise 15 million to start a project to make hybrid elephants from woolly mammoth DNA and living Asian elephants….
“For instance, mammoths are proposed as a solution to help stop permafrost thaw because they will remove trees, trample and compact the ground and convert landscapes to grassland, which can help keep the ground cool. However, we know in the forested Arctic regions that trees and moss cover can be critical in protecting permafrost, so removing the trees and trampling the moss would be the last thing you’d want to do.”
And when they have done it… This is where they will be housed I suppose… Actually the text on the about page is quite informative and convincing in a way… I am sure lots of people will see the sense in it!
