A study of beleaguered butterflies in California provides some of the best clues yet as to how other animals may react to climate change, scientists say.Yes...yes...the butterflies are a "clue" to climate change destruction.
"Like polar bears, these high-elevation butterflies were already living in extreme environments, and now they don't have any options" for escape, Forister says. He says butterfly populations have always shifted over time, but the destruction of their habitat has occurred at an accelerated pace in recent years because of urbanization and warming temperatures.As I type through my tears shed in sympathy for the wayward butterflies and the down-trodden polar bears...I am ashamed to ask:
HOW IN THE HELL CAN THIS STUDY SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY WHEN THE EARTH'S TEMPERATURES ARE PROVEN TO HAVE FALLEN SINCE A PEAK IN 1998....HUH?!?
The good Dr. Matthew Forister's study says in black in white "accelerated pace in recent years because of urbanization and falling temperatures." Yet, the study is hogwash because the Earth's temperatures have been falling for the last decade!!!
Well, I am pragmatic. So, let's look for a bit of motivation for such a report. How about that the report was initiated by a Federal Grant by the National Science Foundation? In other words, your tax dollars paid for this nonsense. And, since the jackassery in Washington D.C. is bent on disrupting private business by applying "cap and trade" legislation that would hogtie viable US industry, those "scientists" wishing to continue making a comfortable living have to return studies (funded publically) showing "proof" of the necessity. That way, when it comes time for another Federally funded round of grants to be approved, Dr. Forister gets first dibs.
This AGW racket has become a laughable, insufferable...joke.
