'Before the retailer even began its program, corporate executives traversed the globe to better understand what was at stake'. I see this as a cynical attempt by the execs to write off their expensive and far flung foreign holidays as 'sustainability reconnoitering'.

You're likely right.

No not at all. I'm just questioning the author's motives here. Did the author do the same thing when Interior officials in the past made controversial decisions or statements? When the USFWS proposed delisting grizzlies in the GYE, did newspapers run photos of Dan Ashe (who at the time was the director of the USFWS) with a bunch of dead ducks and geese?

While this individual sounds like a stereotypical member of Trump's administration, Obama's interior department was also filled with hunters. Using photos like these will only further stoke the divide between consumptive and non-consumptive users of wildlife in America. To me using this photo serves no purpose than to get an emotional response out of readers. And that's pretty disingenuous in my eyes.

I see your point, birda, but I doubt the writer of the article chose the photo or illustration to accompany it. That was most likely done by an editor.

I grew up with hunters. I live around hunters. I have family & friends who are hunters. I don't hate hunters. I can't. Perhaps you should be more concerned about how this administration & the NRA are making hunters look.

I am very concerned. Ashe himself wrote a good piece that appeared in either the Washington Post or the Huffington Post (can't remember which one it was), about the current gun control debate. I can't seem to find it online anymore, so I will try to dig it up to share. I'm wondering if it was pulled at this point.

Edit: Found it!

I wonder how much damage removing the detritus from beaches does to the eco system?
