They cannot stand a 1.5 degree warmer temperature, obviously.

These 'scientific' studies they keep reporting, on everything from mountain goats to tuna fish, always lose credibility with me when they pull in 'climate change' to blame everything on. :roll:

I know exactly what you mean Doc, and you're right! Enough said. But it's a shame! It's sickening! It's a disgrace!!! But when people allow controversial opinions, theories, to creep in, 100 years later Lotta people believe they evolved from monkeys, then they start thinking and acting like em, and teaching it as fact.

Ok, first off in day light hours a wolf can SEE a goat moving and begin a hunt by getting down wind. At night a goat is going to disappear and a wolf now can only rely on its nose. Goats are very sure footed, a wolf is but not to the same extent. Advantage- goat.
Have I missed something in my 54 years, eagles are NIGHT hunters? Gee they have incredible eyesight but do they have night vision for flying through mountain passes to get to the goats?

Now elk have become silent AND nocturnal where the wolves have returned, elk have learned.

Here we have and exploding bear population and they are completely nocturnal around the neighborhoods, learned to feed from garbage cans in the dark and they don't get bothered. Heck the other night a bear broke into my bosses chicken coop and killed 10 of his 12 chickens.
Animals learn to cope with anything.

From 0630 to 0700 weekdays we get a quarter hour each of deutschworld & euronews. This morning "they" had a report that, with the prevalent theory that the arctic is going to melt by 2030, "they" worry that icebreaker crews and onshore support personnel might be prone to despair their job securities & way of life. Norway and Russia are supposedly already looking into suicide intervention protocols. Then "they" said if we all would reduce carbon emissions just by 20% before 2030, the planet might be saved. Come on people, just 5.5 years to go. Get with the plan !

Notice how "they" both, keep moving the goals as the reality doesn't match their own definition of scientific predictions and then hasten the point of no return to stress urgency (panic).....2030 is just around the corner.

Just last week there was a report that, because of climate change, nature is rebelling against itself. Their proofs ? Not heavy weather or drought to flood/blizzard extremes but the fact(s) that orcas are killing great white sharks and eating the livers.
You'd think that there was a reason that they were called killer whales all of those years.....

Yes and killer whales have been preying on sharks for thousands of years, more great whites than ever, more pinnipeds too which to sharks are also tasty!
And how is it that there more sharks and seals? Conservative policies put forth by people that see, understand how to save things...
Wild turkeys, bison, whitetail deer, whales, the bald eagle and the list goes on what conservation has saved from the brink.
Not from tax dollars spent/ given away!

Now it's TICKS - they're expanding their range because of a degree-and-a-half of average temperature.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/other/ ... r-BB1mGc2H

Fascinating how even though hourly temperatures fluctuate more than that, and species typically are most limited by the low or high-end extreme temperatures, which have NOT changed in a way to favor some relentless expansion of TICK habitat, and the fact that there are a HUGE number of confounding variables other than the alleged 'climate change', these articles always align on the same theme - that we need more taxes and regulations, and more favoritism with government contracting to and favoring certain 'savior' companies (typically owned by relatives and friends).

Just look how "they" castigated & "cancelled" the leaders of toyota. Those humble and stalwart heads of industry (nipponese) refused to build autos that they couldn't sell. They agreed that e.v.s should and must be developed and marketed but the projected manufacturing numbers would always be small.....like less than 1% of a global year's inventory. Toyota knew that the batteries & charging system would not work in extreme temperatures and that there was simply no good reason to build more cars than charging stations to serve them. And the econazis went crazy and the top man resigned in shame only for his successor to go and adamantly repeat the same policy. That is, 98% of the world needs dependable and long-lived petrol & diesel autos and that trend will continue for at least the next half-century no matter how the sociopolitical winds blow.

Of course, that ignores that in many countries the number of older folks will be much lower in 2050 simply because the number of folks born in many developed nations has decreased. So, will that number really double? Or are they using a percentage based statistic that they didn't clearly explain.

As the man said, "there are three types of lies. Lies, darned lies and statistics. Want to know if the moon could still be made of mostly green cheese? Put forth that supposition, then use the statistics as to the amount of the moons surface we have explored (and that's actually a lot more than we've set foot on, so I'm being generous) and I can prove statistically that the largest portion of the moon is green cheese.

This is the kind of illogical nonsense that the virtue-signalers tout -

https://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/lif ... r-BB1nvPOZ

So... a couple degrees of overall average temperature is decimating bumblebees. Hmmm... That's pretty odd, since in a given location, there will be local variations in temperature of dozens of degrees depending on the terrain and vegetation.

'Climate' has been changing over time FOREVER, and that's why over time, species of animals and plants migrate gradually. Even long-lived trees survive better or worse at the margins of their optimum environment, and when climate changes, those borderlines change, and survival intrudes or retreats from that boundary. It's been happening for millions of years.

But now, (due to Trump and the NRA no doubt), the bumblebees suddenly can't cope with a gradual overall average temperature change, despite far greater variation in the local environment, far greater excursions of temperature during a normal day, and huge variations over a calendar year.

Bring any of this logic up to an 'environmentalist' and they will just call you a 'climate denier', say you hate grandmas and babies, and probably are a 'racist' too... :roll:

Was just watching nat. geo. "shark week" programming & thousands of smallish sharks had unexpectedly invaded a tidal lagoon where the "downunder" kiddies wade. The reason the experts report ? Unseasonably cool water from human caused global warming drove the toothy fishies into the swimming hole ! And "they" said that we are to expect more bizarre shark behaviour as the fishes flee from the massive islands of plastic garbage that are out there.....masses of flotsam so large the stuff is tracked from space. Now that is something someone can do something about. Cost a lot of $$$$ but that garbage can be collected.

Yes, I thought I was hearing things, how does human caused global warming create COLD water? Ok sure melting ice from Antarctica but salt water floats on top of fresh and cold sinks. Seems to me they said that just to hear themselves.

How does salt water float on fresh water? If you’re thinking about the lack of salinity at very deep depths, that’s a function of pressure not flotation. Even in a body of water at shallower depths and no significant movement salt water and fresh water when combined will become homogeneous resulting in water with a lower salinity but still containing the same volume of salts.

By the way I’ve only floats because it containing entrained air. Water is unique in that it expands when heated due to the molecules getting physically larger. But it also expands when it cools as water will absorb more oxygen as it cools.

Pretty nifty stuff.

It's a density thing. Fresh cold will slip under the warmer saltwater. This is what scientists have claimed will happen when all the world's ice has melted. This causes the Atlantic current to stop flowing which in turn starts the next ice age.
Of course when the sun burns out in 4.5 billion years none of this will matter much.

Sorry, but after a very short time the two streams mix. You can demonstrate that phenomena on a lab, but in the natural world things tend to reach equilibrium fairly rapidly.
