how come these kind of silly proposals get repeatedly published in high-profile journals? perhaps this is something that deserved to be also mentioned, politely

If you want potential co-authors, there are a LOT of people posting about this in other places, including FaceBook, and some have already been asking others about co-authoring rebuttals. Might be productive to try to coordinate, and I can possibly help connect people, including people involved in conservation ecology.

Realistically, all it would likely require is one Google Doc whose link can be given out to potential co-authors, selectively.
