What Are They Teaching Environmentalists Today

9/26/21 Daily Mail:

"Forestry student-turned-shaman, 30, faces nine years in jail for 'starting California's Fawn Fire' that has burned 8,500 acres and destroyed 41 homes: DA suspects she could be 'serial arsonist'"

It gets weirder.  Caltech grad in biology and chemistry.  Her excuse?
"after claiming the blaze was triggered accidentally while she tried to boil bear urine so she could drink it."

Is this some new fad that i missed?
"immediately known if she has an attorney who could speak on her behalf.  

During questioning by investigators, Souverneva, who previously worked as a scientist, but whose most recent job was as an SAT tutor, claimed that she had been thirsty whilst out hiking and found a puddle in a dry creek bed which contained bear urine. 

She then claims she attempted to filter the water using a tea bag but when that failed tried to start a fire to boil the water. Souverneva said that it was too wet to start a fire so she drank the water and continued walking."

Using a teabag? How do you identify bear urine from say cougar urine or fox urine?  The CRC handbook (yes I was a hopeless nerd when I went off to USC to study chemistry) has tables about rat urine.  Is identifying bear urine part of shaman school?

So many leftwing crazies starting fires.  Is global warming the problem?


  1. howintheheck do you collect bear urine for boiling?

    Very very carefully?

  2. The short answer to the question in the title to this post is, "Not much."
