Timothy Lavin, a writer for Bloomberg, is suggesting that we don't need Pandas in the world because they serve no purpose.  

To that, I say, "Shut up."  (I'm clearly using my big girl words.)

Panda bears help keep forests from being overgrown so other animals, that I'm sure Lavin would be just fine with getting rid of, can live.

Since their habitat is slowly going away anyway, you should be happy to know that they will probably die off anyway.

Pandas bring people joy.  That's enough reason to keep them in my book.  You, Mr Lavin, bring no one joy.  Don't be a cranky old man.
