The easiest way to take in this study is to take every one of those global warming propaganda posters of sad polar bears and draw a smile on that bear.
A new study indicates that global warming may actually benefit Arctic animals and ecosystem, by expanding their ranges and increasing biodiversity in the area as warmer-climate species move north.
They found that warming will actually bring in more species from further south, increasing biodiversity in the region. And, even in their worst-case scenario, they expect at most one species to go extinct: the Arctic fox. But, they suspect that this worst-case scenario is just that, a nightmare scenario unlikely to unfold.
The researchers, from Umea University in Sweden, note that these cold-weather loving species that live in the Arctic are used to having to cope with a wide range of climactic conditions — they are relatively hearty creatures.
The amusing thing about this is that, like most global warming research, the new political orthodoxy is necessary to explain the thriving polar bear population.
Global Warming is the First Cause of the cult of the Flying Al Gore Monster and all things are explained in terms of the existence of it. Thus no matter what happens, it’s proof that Global Warming lets no sparrow or polar bear fall.
If polar bears are thriving… that is proof that Global Warming causes polar bears to thrive.
