Think of the Animals

How easy would it have been to get a grant for this if global warming hysteria didn’t exist.

ANIMALS across the world are fleeing global warming by heading north much faster than they were less than a decade ago, a new study says.

About 2000 species examined are moving away from the equator at an average rate of more than 15 feet per day, or about a mile per year, according to new research published in the journal Science which analysed previous studies.

Camille Parmesan of the University of Texas, who conducted that study, said the new research makes sense because her data ended around the late 1990s and the 2000s were far hotter.

“Far hotter”? Bit of an exaggeration, considering UAH satellite data, uncorrupted by the urban heat island effect show minimal warming.

Gases from the burning of fossil fuel, especially carbon dioxide, are trapping heat in the atmosphere, warming the Earth and changing the climate in several ways, according to the overwhelming majority of scientists and the world’s top scientific organisations.

They couldn’t resist throwing in the consensus argument, could they? Anyway, “overwhelming” is a bit of an exaggeration, as well.

For Prof Thomas, this is something he notices every time he returns to his childhood home in southern England. The 51-year-old biologist didn’t see the egret, a rather warm climate bird, in the Cuckmere Valley while growing up.

That, to me, sounds like a good thing, if you are seeing birds you didn’t see before.

So, the climate’s changing is it? Yeah well, it does that. The climate is always changing, and this is obviously going to affect the latitudinal distribution of animals. It doesn’t indicate human influence.


About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?
