Wild horses: A natural resource for staving off wildfires and the impact of global warming

LOVE WILD HORSES® NEWS RELEASE

Love Wild Horses®, a grassroots California-based 501c3, created this wild equine and carbon sequestration research with Craig Downer, a forty-year wild equine expert wildlife ecologist. LWH’s and Downer’s scientific articles highlight the many benefits that free-roaming wild horses freely gift to America’s Western wild public and private lands.

Considering this new scientific evidence, the announced mass removal of more than 6,000 healthy, wildfire and global warming preventing wild horses in the West to begin on September 1st by the Bureau of Land Management, the agency assigned by a 1971 Law to protect wild horses and burros as an integral part of the ecosystem and to protect the health of public lands and at the expense of the American tax payer, is causing public outrage amongst thousands of concerned environmental and animal protection advocates and organizations.

Man does not weave this web of life. He is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”Chief Seattle

The Department of Interior agency’s incongruent actions, which appear to be entirely out of alignment with President Joe Biden’s Climate Change and 30/30 initiatives, will unnecessarily cost the taxpayers over one billion dollars annually and the welfare of the public lands and the survival of the last of America’s wild horses, if unstopped.

The Nonprofit Love Wild Horses seek suitable open grasslands in Northern California and North Eastern Nevada to create natural wild equine cost-effective fire abatement and soil-regeneration land management studies.

Citizens who care to help are encouraged to call and e-mail their legislatures and
Secretary Deb Haaland @ 202-208-3100 and President Joe Biden @ 202-456-1111.

Urge them to please Enact Executive Orders to:

1. Issue an immediate moratorium on the Bureau of Land Management wildfire, global warming, and ecosystem protecting wild horse removals.
2. Return the 65,000 at-risk government incarcerated wild horses to roam freely to save them and to allow the horses to protect our vast open rangelands once again.
3. Support Wild Equine Re-Wilding-Wildfire-Global Warming-Ecosystem Protection-Regenerative Studies to make our wild open Western lands and surrounding communities safer and to heal soils and by restoring wild horse herds to genetic viability and to save tax payers over one billion dollars annually.

The upcoming unnecessary removal of 6,000 healthy wild horses is announced, by the Bureau of Land Management due to drought; ignoring the recent rainfall in the West, that negates the emergency need to remove the horses.

  1. I feel the green-energy aspect of Joe Biden’s 30×30 and climate change initiatives infrastructure plan should have included expanded mass solar-energy harvestation. Maybe it is time every structure independently harvested solar energy, at least as a source of emergency power via storage system. There already are fossil-fuel-powered generator systems that engage once the regular electric-grid flow gets cut off, so why not use completely clean, renewable and free solar energy instead of the very old school, carbon-footprint intensive and often pricy solid-energy means? Also, it may no longer be prudent to have every structure’s entire electricity supply relying on external power lines that are susceptible to being crippled by unforeseen events, including storms of unprecedented magnitude, especially considering our very vulnerable overreliance on electricity. …

    I really feel for the many bone-dry-vegetation areas uncontrollably burning and the many areas soon to follow. As a lifelong resident of southwestern B.C., the unprecedented heatwave here in late June, described by meteorologists as more of a ‘stalling heat dome’, left me feeling I could never again complain about the weather being too cold.

    Clearly, to date there has been discouragingly insufficient political courage and will to properly act upon the cause-and-effect of manmade global warming. But there is still hope for spaceship Earth and therefor humankind, mostly due to environmentally conscious and active young people, especially those who are approaching/reaching voting age. In contrast, the dinosaur electorate who have been voting into high office consecutive mass-pollution promoting or complicit/complacent governments for decades are gradually dying and making way for voters who fully support a healthy Earth thus populace.

  2. This idea is so important for our wild ones’ lives that was proposed a few years ago. But what about the horrific wild fires blazing in Northern California, e.g., the Dixie Fire consuming 430k+ acres and the fires in North East Nevada. These horses may be caught in harm’s way. I am all for and in fact write Pres. Biden weekly to put a moratorium on the emergency roundup of 6,000 wild horses which is unnecessary and until the logic and the law is sorted out. Wild horses – not cows and sheep – are prescribed by law to have primary use of forage and water no matter how the BLM inflates their numbers.
