Plants and critters will have to move an average of a quarter-mile every year to keep up with global warming this century, meaning less mobile creatures will have to adapt or die, a new study revealed Wednesday.
A team of scientists from the California Academy of Sciences, UC Berkeley and the Carnegie Institute of Science said the blistering pace of climate change is going to force animals to scramble, sometimes for miles, looking for relief.
The study, which was published Wednesday in the scientific journal Nature, found that animals and plants - depending on whether they live in the flatlands or mountains - will have to travel anywhere from 50 feet to 6 miles every year between now and 2100 to find habitat similar to what they currently enjoy.
"Adapt, move or go extinct. Those are the three options," said Healy Hamilton, a conservation biologist at San Francisco's Academy of Sciences and a co-author of the paper.

They're right... it was raining at my house and two blocks away it was snowing... two more blocks down the road it was 98 degrees.... two blocks later it's a vaccuum with zero gravity... it's crazy I tell you!
That was easily the dumbest column I've ever read!!

It's funny how enviro-weenies claim to believe in evolution - that is until it comes to survival of the fittest.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

a quarter mile a year? In which direction. If it is AGW then I guess the equator creatures are headed north. What happens when everything and everybody arrive at the north pole? At a quarter of a mile a year from jax to the north pole will take 16520 years so I guess I'll l leave the problem for my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grand kids worry about... if I had kids

a very neat place to experiment with data searches and calculations.

The bears and the sloths will attack each other in no-holds-barred cage matches until in the end.......

Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
