Nice try, when you can't be constructive you turn to dismissive.

No Lynda I'm not 'THE expert', but I do know a bit about this topic 
since I do sustainable forestry management. I was suggesting that you 
get educated before you make false broad blanket statements like you've 
been doing. You have at your finger tips, in books and the web, a world 
of information. Educate yourself.

It is sad when you respond to a valid discussion and opposition to your 
ideas with remarks like this. It shows a rigidity in your thinking. 
Ease up and try to clear your mind a bit before you go forward. You 
could learn a lot that way. It is okay.
