sounds neat. it's cool that there are people who are thinking about this.

also sounds 100% ineffective at preventing illegal logging in the first place. so it'll just alert someone somewhere that something that would eventually be discovered has occurred.

and what's to stop illegal loggers from cutting down cell-phone towers?

Pooping on the Pantanal is prohibited.

calbert: also sounds 100% ineffective at preventing illegal logging in the first place. so it'll just alert someone somewhere that something that would eventually be discovered has occurred.


Well, it also identifies who was responsible for the logging so they can be dealt with by the justice system.

By your argument, we should probably do away with the police as well, they don't exactly prevent crime in the first place, they just identify the criminals so that they can be dealt with by the justice system.

We should start handing out cell phones to dolphins, too. Smart phones, of course, that they can use in the meantime, when there is no trouble from Japanese fishermen.

How would a butt plug help?

Not a bad idea. This way they can go after the logging companies and sawmills instead of the lumberjacks.

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it then how do you know that a tree fell?

A wizard should know better!

It couldn't hurt!

Won't be long before the loggers just start looking at the trees they've cut down and removing the device.
