Animals Moving More Quickly From Warming

THE GIST

* Animals are fleeing global warming much faster than they were less than a decade ago.
* A study found about 2,000 species are moving north at a rate of more than 15 feet a day.



Climate change appears to be forcing many of the world's creatures to migrate to more favorable locales up to three times faster than previously believed, a study said Thursday.

Researchers compiled past studies on species migration and combined them into a meta-analysis that showed a clear trend toward cooler climates, with the fastest moves in places where heating was most intense.

"These changes are equivalent to animals and plants shifting away from the equator at around 20 centimeters per hour, for every hour of the day, for every day of the year," said project leader Chris Thomas, biology professor at the University of York.


So, do we have further promotion of false facts here, or, are we really seeing the species around the equator migrating to survive? According to the study, this has been going on for at least the last 40 years.

"Our analysis shows that rates of response to climate change are two or three times faster than previously realized,"

That's funny considering there's less people living in the North, maybe these creatures are trying to get away from us.

The tigers(all 1000 of them) are more threatened by the destruction of the sunderbans than climate change.

On topic:-> it is quite interesting.
I didn't know climate actually caused the herds to move to favourable areas because the animals have been using the same paths throughtout their lives(see migration of animals in african national parks).

Do you think this article is just further disinformation on the topic?

Which warming would are you referring too? since the earth has been cooling since 1998

This thread is why you can't have an intelligent debate about climate change/global warming on ATS.

Someone chimes in with the topic and out come the deniers.

Typical.

I can see now. I read the article and was interested in discussion regarding this development. I know there are proponents of both sides pushing their agenda and I'm left in the middle.

Are we warming? I don't know.
Are we cooling? I don't know that either.

Is this credible information? Is this more disinformation on this topic that is such a grey area in itself?

I, like you, would like to have a discussion versus claims with no source or additional information to research.

A shame, really.

Last I heard, we've still not reached the heat index for the middle ages.

Hrm, just found this:

I thought it was getting hotter in the summers and colder in the winters, and windier when windy


At least that's what it looks like when the southern US is looking like it's going to be like the African desert lately, and then in the winters there's snow in places that haven't seen snow in their lifetimes.....

It's colder, it's hotter, it's windier.

I only hope that the poor animals migrating north out of the excessive heat, climatize properly to the winters and don't freeze to death.

It is clearly another pro warming propaganda piece, he says tigers will step up onto to the podium with polars bears as another endagered species threatened by climate change. Polar bear numbers are rising and have been steadily for the last 50 years.Even the smarter pro warming activists dont even mention Polar bears any more.The whole polar bear global warming fiasco has been completely discredited
Of the 13 populations of polar bears in Canada, 11 are stable or increasing in number. They are not going extinct, or even appear to be affected at present.

Also there is no discernable sea level rise happening anywhere, theres just no evidence for it.... anywhere.

Rise of sea levels is 'the greatest lie ever told'
