Skeptical Science Climate Myths #8: Animals And Plants Can Adapt
Skeptical Science explains what peer reviewed science says about global warming. It divides what the science says into basic and intermediate analysis. This is what the science says about this myth: A large number of ancient mass extinction events have been strongly linked to global climate change.
Because current climate change is so rapid, the way species typically adapt (e.g. – migration) is, in most cases, simply not be possible. Global change is simply too pervasive and occurring too rapidly.
Skeptical Science: “When you peruse the many arguments of global warming skeptics, a pattern emerges. Skeptic arguments tend to focus on narrow pieces of the puzzle while neglecting the broader picture.
“For example, a focus on Climategate emails neglects the full weight of scientific evidence for man-made global warming. Concentrating on a few growing glaciers ignores the world-wide trend of accelerating glacier shrinkage. Claims of global cooling fail to realise the planet as a whole is still accumulating heat. Skeptical Science presents the broader picture.”
