(Coincidence is the fool's blindfold)
I've been saying since 1st hearing of this place - 30+ yrs ago - that Easter Island was nothing more than an amusing stop-off by some unknown seafarers.
They put up a few statues and went on their way. Nothing there...end of story.
Of course I've had scant response on my views.

If only they'd all driven Priuses.
I wish I had all the money that has been spent studying Easter Island and the paper used in printing these Thesies on what happened could re-forestate the place.
Do most normal humans really care?

I know its a repeat but I missed it yesterday. I always thought the concept of an ecological footprint was somewhat amusing. At what point do humans get removed from the ecosystem? What is a sustainable footprint? What size footprints do other species have?

(Not blind opposition to progress, but opposition to blind progress)
Jared Diamond mentions this in 'collapse'. By itself, it adds to his argument, but collectively, his book arrives at biased environmentalist type conclusions. Not recommended.
But 'Guns, Germs, and Steel' is a great read.

'Did humans devastate Easter Island on arrival?'
Humans? No way ......
