I suffer from Republican "representation" too, due to the area in which I live (and probably gerrymandering and voter restriction too).

For those who don't care so much about the extinction of one obscure mammal, remember that heat and sea level rise are also affecting global food production. You eat, right?

Even the folks (not on AN!) on the fringe who distrust science, and prefer Natural!!! remedies (as if everything is wonderful except for human activity -- shades of "original sin"?), should be concerned about losing biodiversity! There's plenty we can learn from how various living things have adapted to meet their challenges, and plenty of undiscovered chemicals that might be extremely useful if not lifesaving.

Don, apparrently this little darlin' was a rat-like creature that lived only on a few isolated, low lying islands that have flooded more with the sea level change. I wont take the bait about anthropogenic, regardless of cause, climate is changing. to be honesy, I cant get worked up about some little rat - like rodent dying off, on some obscure island. Maybe we can regard it as a canary in a coal mine, but I suspect it still wont be missed.

How do they know it wasn't a virus?  Or seagulls, or some other malady?  How do they know it was due to climate change?  And how do they know it is anthropogenic CO2 that caused the dastardly deed?

Youtube video: Richard Lindzen on climate change

Even though I admit to a feeling of validation when I saw this video I'm more interested in what it didn't say... and the thoughts of you folks who disagree with my climate change conclusions.
