I find it so hard to understand how evil so much of mankind has become. What damage he has caused on and to this planet, and with the results hitting us in the face in one area of our foolishness, Climate Change.

Man has done so much as I said to harm our 3rd rock from the sun. yet deniers can't accept that this same evil/foolishness can be responsible for what is happening to this planets Climate.. Plain ness

51 kilograms of rhino horns valued at over $3M seized...

Malaysian Rhino Horn Seizure Worth Over $3 Million
April 10, 2017 - Malaysian customs officials said Monday they have confiscated 18 rhino horns, weighing more than 51 kilograms, and valued at over $3 million.
Quote:
Customs said they found the horns in a crate Friday at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport cargo terminal after receiving an anonymous tip. The haul had been shipped from Mozambique via a Qatar Airways flight with false documentation, classifying the the horns as “obre de arte” — or work of art. Rhino horn global trade is banned under a United Nations convention.


Protected rhinos roam and feed in an enclosed precinct at the Kahya Ndlovu Lodge in Hoedspruit, in the Limpopo province of South Africa

Malaysian officials say the case is under investigation and no suspects have been arrested. Rhino horns have been used for centuries in traditional Asian medicine, but they have not been proven to cure any illnesses. The wild rhino population at the start of the 20th century was 500,000, but has since dwindled to 29,000.
