More On Pine Beetles and Grizzly Bears In the Yellowstone Ecosystem

I do not want to use my blog to quibble; especially with friends that I know to be way pro-bear, but I see the presence and activity of the mountain pine beetle, in the Yellowstone Ecosystem a bad thing very related to a changing (getting hotter) climate. I do not see this as happening overnight but I do see this as happening over the next few decades. Lets say some of the whitebark seeds regenerate trees and beetles or blister rust do not get these trees, by the time cones are produced species like the grizzly bear will be shot out by managers or hunters trying to keep hungry bears off of their elk carcasses and out of good smelling hunting camps.
