. . . when people see a baby wooly mammoth or wooly rhino [restored by genetic hacking of surviving DNA]."

Really?  This was from a TED Radio Hour broadcast.  You know, it sounds a lot like a niche passion to me.  Like, among the people working to restore wooly mammoths as a species, there would probably be a few boobs who would be moved to tears if they succeeded, but across the general population of the planet, there will be those who feel that restoring extinct species is pretty cool, those who feel it is not cool, many more who don't care, and a vast, vast majority who don't even know what you're talking about.  "Hearts will break and tears will flow . . . "  Give me a break.  Exactly as many tears will flow as flow when another rain forest is destroyed or another rhinocerous is shot for its horn that will do precisely nothing to help some rich ignorant Chinese asshole to get it up one more time.  That's how many tears.
