Humans to Whales, Birds, Turtles: "Get Lost!"

Birds, whales and other migratory creatures are suffering from global warming that puts them in the wrong place at the wrong time. A warmer climate disrupts the biological clocks of migratory species including bats, dolphins, antelopes or turtles, said Lahcen el Kabiri, deputy head of the Convention on Migratory Species. He added: “They are the most visible warning signs – indicators signalling the dramatic changes to our ecosystems caused in part by climate change.”

Okay, you can't check today's “carbon-weather” but you can see what it was in the past. Check out this site created by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that provides a global perspective of carbon uptake and release.

"Bias in favour of the truth"

This columnist today takes the “Global Warming Swindle” film to task.

Choice quotes:

Certainly, there is considerable pressure to offer a balanced presentation of controversial issues. This is nowhere more apparent than in the case of global warming. Witness Mike Chernoff's recent attempt to get copies of The Great Global Warming Swindle into high school classrooms to “balance” Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, and his statement that “without balanced information on a subject, an unbiased decision is difficult.”

Forget the birds and the bees. It's the butterflies, Stupid!

Britain's hottest April on record has meant butterflies are hatching up to two months early. The charity Butterfly Conservation said butterflies had been emerging an average of half a day earlier each year from the mid-Seventies until last year. 

This year has blown all that away. We have had lots of species coming out two weeks earlier than last year, some a month or two months early. It's really a very dramatic situation.”
