Danson in the Dark

Actor and noted intellectual Ted Danson has a piece on CNN.com entitled “World’s Biggest Fish Are Dying.”

To his credit, it is not about whales.

Unfortunately, most of his analysis is on a similar intellectual plane. As PERC’s Terry Anderson recently pointed out on 20/20, the best way to save endangered species is to eat them.  Cows, chickens, and pigs will never be threatened species as long as we need them for food.

Rising demand for buffalo meat has given entrepreneurs ample incentive to boost that endangered animal’s numbers. It works on land. Why not at sea, too?
