Seeing as that order are all "ground-eating" birds, the reason is probably mostly based on: "Bird that doesn't fly too high when I try to catch it."
That puts any supervolcanoes to shame.
Although the plates have shifted locations since that eruption.
It was ejected by the scientific community for a while since it was too close to a 'creation' story.
This is not news for people who have been paying attention to such things.
Someone needs to go tell that plant to go clean up their act. At the very least, it's wasting methane.
Pope Benedict XVI endorsed this statement (before becoming pope):
"According to the widely accepted scientific account, the universe erupted 15 billion years ago in an explosion called the 'Big Bang' and has been expanding and cooling ever since. Later there gradually emerged the conditions necessary for the formation of atoms, still later the condensation of galaxies and stars, and about 10 billion years later the formation of planets. In our own solar system and on earth (formed about 4.5 billion years ago), the conditions have been favorable to the emergence of life. While there is little consensus among scientists about how the origin of this first microscopic life is to be explained, there is general agreement among them that the first organism dwelt on this planet about 3.5–4 billion years ago. Since it has been demonstrated that all living organisms on earth are genetically related, it is virtually certain that all living organisms have descended from this first organism. Converging evidence from many studies in the physical and biological sciences furnishes mounting support for some theory of evolution to account for the development and diversification of life on earth, while controversy continues over the pace and mechanisms of evolution." - Communion and Stewardship: Human Persons Created in the Image of God, plenary sessions held in Rome 2000–2002, published July 2004,
Evolution, and most other science is fine with Catholics.

I'm a member of a CSA in the wonderful state of Pennsylvania.
I pay around that much. (although in one annual payment for May-Nov)
My farmer has 2 acres of land and about 30-40 members if I recall. So that's the same order of magnitude.
We get more veggies than we can eat. The fridge is always stuffed full of whatever's in season. Lettuces; cukes; peppers; tomatoes; kohlrabi; squash; potatoes; parsnips; etc; etc.
I still sadly need to throw stuff away since we can't eat it all in time. But it's just the fresh stuff and storage veggies. We don't get grains. Corn has a horrible yield density.
They aren't making a killing. I actually had a pair of farmers for the first few years of the CSA, but they decided it wasn't possible to both live off of it, so she went off to do something else.
I did the math a few years ago. It's probably somewhat less than it costs at the grocery store, but it much fresher. You can't compare the taste of tomatoes from a store and something you just picked. (You can pick some of your own stuff also. I'm pretty damn sure he isn't trucking anything in.)
I get to be on a first name basis with my farmer, and I'm helping someone with a local business. He would get pennies on the dollar selling to a store, so it's win-win. And my kids get to see where their food comes from. Anything he has leftover gets sent to a Food Bank.
It would be awesome if I didn't have to drive to pick up the veggies, like these planned towns. Cool idea.
The above is absolutely true and people who get pissed off about Xmas and Xian don't realize they are Greek short forms for Christ that have been used since the 3rd centurty. Heck, does that mean the Chi-Rho symbol used extensively in churchs is also an slur? (Aw, slashdot won't let me insert HTML Greek char codes)
Please feel free to continue to use Xmas and Xian. There is no war on Christmas or Christ. As you were...
More likely it is the speed of deployment, the ability to strike targets without going high enough to be seen by many advance warning radars, and without using nuclear warheads makes it a precision surprise attack weapon, a kind of super cruise missile for surprise asymetric attacks."
