Hunters probably do more to preserve resources than do eco-alarmists like Al Gore. A private group of duck hunters called Ducks Unlimited has reclaimed or set aside many acres of tule and wetlands in which ducks thrive. Of course, since we will all have the option of uploading any day now, it doesn't really matter. We can hunt ducks in the virtual reality of the Superorganism's brain when we upload ourselves (and the ducks, of course).
