Bummer: Climate Change Could Force Orioles Out Of Baltimore

Oh, not the baseball team, which played to a completely empty stadium months back, due to Democratic Party voter violence, but the birds

(Inside Climate News) More than half of North America’s birds may lose most of their current home range by the end of the century due to climate change, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE.

The study models a range of scenarios with a range of greenhouse gas emissions and predicts how the distribution of nearly 600 North American bird species will change because of rising temperatures. Even under the most hopeful scenario, the study found that 126 species will lose more than 50 percent of their current range––with no opportunity to expand to more hospitable locations. In some cases, species will lose almost 100 percent of the area suitable for their survival. (Snip)

“The Baltimore Oriole, state bird of Maryland and mascot for Baltimore’s baseball team, may no longer nest in the Mid-Atlantic, shifting north instead to follow the climatic conditions it requires,” Langham said in an email.

Why do Warmists sound like Flat Earthers, always expecting, nay, demanding, that the natural world (something they see on TV, as they liver in their big cities) always stay the same?

“It’s kind of a wake-up call that many of our more common species even could be in jeopardy in the coming decades,” Siegel said. “We need to get land management right to do the best conservation that we can in the face of climate change that is largely inevitable.”

These species survived multiple coll and warm periods. Most surely survived the last glacial age. I think they can survive a whopping 1.4F increase.

    It’s already made them the murder capital of the country.

    Haha it is like the “flat earthers” are now the conservatives who don’t want change
    Teach for a rich white nan with no kids the change in climate. Will be easy to accept
    For other living things maybe difficult maybe impossible
    Remember. 1/3 of human beings must live on less than 2$ per day
    Any change might be very difficult for them
    Teach have you ever seen any of those people and their struggle to just survive? Maybe travel would allow you to see the world outside your bubble.

    Not all humans have lived your priviledged life
    For many mere existence is a struggle
    Yet you mock their problems dealing with any change

    Are you really that dumb or just pretending. Of course the species (including humans will survive) but the distribution/territories are changing because of global warming. It’s not that hard of a concept. The ecosystems will re-equilibrate (provided global warming eventually slows and stops) but the ride will be bumpy.

    Orioles are lucky – they can fly north! Flora may have a harder time adjusting.

    The “normal” range of a species is determined by myriad influences including temperature range, parasites, soil, elevation, rainfall, predators, open ground vs forest, diseases etc. – and the influences are largely interlocked! Why are spring peepers abundant in St. Louis but none in the Denver area? Why are there sugar maples in the Springfield Missouri area but not Arkansas?

    I’m just wondering if anyone ever figured out how many birds are killed by the wind turbines in the fields every year.

  5. Conservative Beaner says:

    The way Baltimorons are acting a move would be good for the Orioles.

  6. Jeffery says:


    Yes. Not many birds killed by wind turbines when compared to the millions killed by housecats, high rise buildings, habitat loss, windows and burning coal.

    So, John, why do you want the third of the population that lives on less than $2 a day to have to pay more basic energy costs? Is it because you don”t care?

    the j’s like shit on their windshields …….. oh that’s right they take the bus and walk to the viewing room at planned parenthood.
