Dunno if this is out of your expertise or anything, but I was curious about your opinion on the current Kenya Ivory burn going on. I find it incredibly frustrating that they're trying to send this idealistic message when the economics of destroying ivory means that this will only drive up the cost for ivory and hence drive up poaching, but do you know if there's a strong counter-argument against that?

I’m not an expert, but I can tell you my opinion based on the research I’ve read.

The short answer: there’s no strong evidence that ivory burns either increase or decrease demand for ivory. Focusing on the effectiveness of the burns is a bit of a conservation red herring.

The longer answer: there’s a shit ton to unpack here, unfortunately. But the main thing to understand is that the ivory being burned comes from government stockpiles. This is ivory that is already off the market, because the government isn’t selling it, and hopefully won’t ever sell it. To suggest that destroying the stockpiles is akin to increase demand by decreasing supply is almost to suggest that the right thing for the government to do would be to put the ivory back onto the market.

In theory, that almost sounds okay. Supply up - demand down, right? And if there’s a way to buy ivory legally, that should drive down prices on the black market- in theory. Here is the issue: there is practically no way to identify whether or not ivory has been obtained legally or illegally. (Legal ivory comes from products taken before bans were enacted or other such loopholes.) Essentially, anyone can slap a sticker on an ivory product that says “100% totally not poached!” In fact, many huge ivory shops in China do just this, despite the arguments of experts who say there’s no fucking way the sheer volume of ivory moving through these places is all certifiably legal.

(The U.S. isn’t exactly clean either, though; our people tend to just claim they inherited their ivory from their grandparents.)

If there was some way to sustainably harvest wild animals with 22-month pregnancies (in case you were wondering: there is not), perhaps arguments of keeping supply somewhat high would have more merit. However, even then, there are major problems. First, again, differentiating between legal and illegal ivory would still be a huge issue. Second, there’s the fact that supply is not the only factor driving up the price of ivory. In fact, it probably isn’t even the largest one- and in fact, there’s the possibility that increasing supply could also increase demand.

This becomes apparent when you look at the illegal tiger trade in China. To sum up another very complicated issue, trade in most tiger products such as tiger bone wine has been illegal in China since 1992. This greatly reduced supply, and the vast majority of medicine shops stopped carrying tiger products. However, almost immediately after the ban was put in place, several large, government-backed tiger farms were opened in China, ostensibly for conservation purposes. (Not a single tiger from these farms has been successfully released into the wild, by the way.)

In recent years, China has eased parts of the ban, allowing some farms to sell tiger bone wine so long as they don’t explicitly sell it as medicine. Now some members of the Chinese government are saying that the ban should be lifted so that trade in domestic tiger parts can reduce the pressure on wild tigers. But the evidence suggests that the effect would be the opposite. Demand for tiger products dropped following the initial ban, but has been ticking back up. And so has poaching of wild tigers, in spite of the use of captive populations- with 90% of all confiscated products destined for Chinese markets. Putting tiger products back on the market increased demand. And like ivory, there is no way to tell legal tiger bone from poached tiger bone. From an EIA report:

A lack of clarity over the use of captive-bred tiger bones has created an environment of confusion in which tiger bone wine is being produced and marketed. With 5,000-6,000 tigers in captivity there is a growing ‘bank’ of bones stockpiled by private tiger breeders and owners. Instead of being destroyed, skin and bone stockpiles are being registered and labelled, further fuelling speculation of future trade…

Contrary to pro-trade lobby assertions running a legal trade in the skins of captive-bred tigers for nearly 10 years has not stopped the poaching of wild tigers and other Asian big cats.

So: elephants. What the lessons from tigers suggest is that the most effective way to decrease poaching doesn’t necessarily lie in increasing supply of the animal parts, and in fact this can cause a net harm. Indeed, part of the rise of elephant poaching may actually have been prompted by attempts to ease the ban on ivory trade by such reputable organizations as CITES by allowing certain countries to sell their confiscated stockpiles and even legally sell some newly-acquired ivory. There’s no evidence that this worked to decrease the rising demand for elephant tusks.

Of course, again, this is a massive simplification of only one factor that drives the demand for ivory and other animal parts (and I don’t mean to imply that China is the only country driving demand, either). The point I’m trying to make is that the best way to stop animal poaching is to destroy things from the demand side. If we can convince people that ivory is worthless- because the only value it has is the one we attach to it- we should.

Sources and further reading below the cut- I highly recommend reading up on China’s captive tiger trade, it’s fascinating and horrifying.

George A. Romero : les cinq grands films à l'origine de son mythe
DÉCRYPTAGE - De la construction d'un genre entier dans ses trois premiers films, à l'audace d'un commentaire politique au milieu d'une œuvre peuplée de morts-vivants, retour sur les contributions au septième art les plus importantes du pape des zombies.

Le maître et inventeur du film de zombie s'en est allé rejoindre ses créatures à l'âge de 77 ans. Bien avant sa mort, une question hante les esprits de nombreux cinéphiles et amateurs de genre: comment expliquer que cet homme a autant inspiré la pop culture? Sans lui, c'est vrai, point de Walking Dead , la série américaine à succès, qui s'inspire énormément de l'œuvre du réalisateur de La Nuit des morts-vivants. Celui qui avait pris sa retraite depuis son dernier film en 2008, avait d'ailleurs décliné les propositions de la chaîne HBO, de participer à ce grand show.

Se replonger dans sa filmographie, c'est comprendre comment se construit un mythe. Entre son premier film en 1968, et son troisième datant de 1985, ses zombies ont changé énormément. Ils se perfectionnent. Apparaissent comme bien plus sophistiqués. Le cinéaste affine la formule et pose les jalons d'un genre entier. Jalons qui ne seront pas contredits avant 28 jours plus tard de Danny Boyle, où les zombies ressemblent davantage à des surhommes qu'à des cadavres ambulants.

Le pape des morts-vivants laisse derrière lui une œuvre inégale, mais surtout inégalée, portée par quelques grands films avec pour trait d'union le frisson, l'effroi, mais aussi une systématique recherche de l'analogie politique.

● The Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Réalisé avec un budget d'un peu moins de 114.000 dollars, le premier film de George A. Romero possède déjà toutes les caractéristiques qui feront le succès du genre. Premier code et première nouveauté: les zombies, autrefois simples humains hypnotisés, y deviennent des morts sortis de la tombe. C'est aussi là qu'apparaît la seule manière de se (…) Lire la suite sur Figaro.fr

Some of the luckiest bomber crewmen of the entire war!

Returning from a Nickeling mission over Warsaw the night of October 15th-16th, 1939, the AW Whitley “L-Love” of 77 Squadron was running low on fuel and, thinking they had reached the French border, put down in a field. Although an AA gun had fired a single shot at them, turning on their navigation lights and putting the wheels down had ended further fire, and they assumed nothing was amiss.

Exiting the plane and walking out, they were greeted by a group of curious villagers who, after a stilted conversation in some poor quality French, informed them they were actually in Germany. Realizing their mistake, the crew bolted for the plane some 200 yards behind them, and had the engines started before the German military patrol reached them and opened fire. There was enough fuel left to make it the remaining dozen miles to France.
