Warmists Worried About ‘Climate Change’ Turning Up Heat On Koalas

Another day, another silly computer model study which aimed to be very concerned, and came out as very concerned

Climate change likely to turn up heat on koalas

A changing climate means that by 2070 koalas may no longer call large parts of inland Australia home, researchers have found.

Using a detailed ecological model, the University of Melbourne study shows hotter temperatures and altered rainfall patterns will make it much more difficult for koalas to get the water they need – making inland populations vulnerable to heat-stress.

The researchers mapped potential koala habitats in 2070 by using information about koala behaviour, physiology, body size, and fur to predict how much energy and water koalas need to survive under the climate at a particular location. They found that the climatically suitable area dramatically reduced by 2070, particularly in Queensland. The koala’s range across Australia was limited by water requirements for keeping cool, with the timing of rainfall and heat waves being crucial in limiting the koala in the warmer parts of its range.

Got that? They were able to get their crystal balls, er, computer models to tell them exactly what they wanted: doom for koalas! Because they know exactly what the weather will be 50+ years from now. They wouldn’t be able to tell you what it will be specifically 20 days from now, but 50 years? Easy peasy!

Dr Brendan Wintle, Deputy Director of the National Environmental Science Programme’s Threatened Species Recovery Hub, and a co-author of the study, says describing where koalas and other threatened species find refuge from changing climate and other threats such as cats and foxes allows efficient focus of conservation efforts and limited conservation funding.

And this is one of the (many) things that bugs me about the Cult of Climastrology. There are real environmental issues going on, yet these cultish fools focus on ‘climate change’ rather than those issues, often placing those real issues much lower. Koala populations suffer from chlamydia and habitat loss. Habitat loss plays a huge part, which brings them into contact with cars and dogs. Feral animals. Bushfires, which can be anthropogenic, but, mostly because of idiots playing with fire. Dieback, where cutting back in forests creates separate pockets, which can die off. Feral animals brought by humans to Australia. Real issues. Not tiny climatic swings as have been going on for longer than humanity.

    Is the pause over ?

  2. Jeffery says:

    We’re starting a new “pause” now, that will be warmer than the previous pause and that will end with new record highs in a few years. Deniers live from pause to pause.

    Deniers live from paycheck to paycheck. Grocery bill to grocery bill.

    Deniers do not care what the world will be like in 100 or 200 years from now. They are concerned with how they are going to feed their families TODAY.

    Deniers grew up with Great Grandad saying “IF YOU DONT LIKE THE WEATHER STICK AROUND IT WILL CHANGE IN AN HOUR.”

    Deniers want to eat. They want to know that farmers are farming and dairies are turning out milk and that there is a reliable means of transportation to and from work so they can FEED THEIR FAMILIES.

    AGW wants to take all that away and make sure that those same SOB BASTARD DENIERS suffer and starve and have to rely on an ever stretched government for handouts….

    AGW wants these people on the government TITS so they vote for their own self interest.

    AGW wants YOU to STARVE and BEG the GOVERNMENT for a BAILOUT.

    Deniers and Believers. It is a religion and they are coming for your souls……and you better vote for the true believers or else you might find yourself starving yet again.

    It is a war….Make no mistake about it….the problem is the ones that are fighting it are much like the Muslims and the Caliphate….only one side seems to realize there is a war going on……the other side DENIES the war.

    Their are believers and deniers in everything human……Global warming is no different in that the winner gets to write the history book and dole out the SPOILS.

    The Battle Rages…..and the world is losing to delusional Believers whose main motive is not a warming globe but POWER and CONTROL.

    Let their be no mistake. This is a war and the Believers have turned up the heat….. Pun intended.

    Dateline 2016.

    Walmart, whose supercenters once transformed the way Americans shop, announced on Friday that it would close a record number of stores in the United States and overseas,

    to be fair lets realize that online shopping is killing retail.

    Other retail stalwarts, including Macy’s, Sears and J. C. Penney, are also shuttering stores after a weak holiday sales season.

    The same idea applies to AGW…with no competition fossil fuels rage on at the angst of the warmists crowds.

    What is lost in this is that JOBS are going to online retailers who do not need clerks to fill orders.

    in a retail landscape under siege by the behemoth Amazon.

    Not a 1000 high paid unskilled laborers needing to be paid by online Amazon as is the case in these other retailers.

    Barnes and Noble another brick and mortar company is nearly dead…..as is Sears and K-mart….yet again. Stores once teaming with shoppers now find themselves ghost towns.

    The restaurant company closed 350 stores in early 2015, on top of the 350 it had already said it would shutter, as the burger purveyor seeks to stanch sales declines.

    Things worldwide and in the USA are not nearly as rosey as the Warmists would proclaim under Obama.

    Downsizing Retail Chain Store Closing Plans and Totals 2016 – US and Global

    This list compiled by money magazine is staggering as worldwide stores are closing at a record pace to do what?

    Keep up with hugely inflated minimum wages, stagnating shopping at brick and mortar locations with the growth of online shopping and a world wide economy ROCKED BY low oil prices and 150 countries around the world that depend on the governments to FEED, CLOTHE and SHELTER its people who find themselves searching for revenue.

    And the AGW crowd wonders why no one is lobbying for Windmills and Solar panels and nuclear power plants or investing in extensive R&D in green energy.

    This is but a tip of the iceberg. The USA alone has something around 120 trillion in unfunded liabilities and CITIES AND EVEN SOME STATES are teetering on the verge of Bankruptcy and threatening employees massive retirements and health insurance cadillac plans that have been the rage up until about a decade ago when their PONZI schemes starting crumbling.

    World wide anarchy is around the corner. Once GM and Chrysler and trucking companies and railroaders and states and cities start going belly up and PROMISED BENEFITS ARE SHAVED or eliminated…….

    The proverbial shit is about to hit the fan and the Delusional Democrats will be screaming for the Federal government to save them with more PRINTED MONEY.

    Thus is the backdrop around the world for a delusional AGW crowd who cant understand why governments are not tossing aside fossil fuels for Green Energy….HIGH SKILL JOBS with NO HIGH SKILL LABOR FORCE to provide the adequate force.

    to add insult to injury:

    Robots will cut labor costs by 33 percent in South Korea, 25 percent in Japan, 24 percent in Canada and 22 percent in the United States and Taiwan. Only 10 percent of jobs that can be automated have already been taken by robots. By 2025, the machines will have more than 23 percent, Boston Consulting forecasts.

    Only 10 percent of jobs that can be done by robots have be replaced by robots.

    Source NBC News….not a Republican mouthpiece fear mongering.

    Move over people your job could be NEXT.

    Laim,

    In COMPARISON to you, global warming realists are downward CHEERFUL.

    DOOM! The ROBOTS are coming! The ROBOTS are COMING! Another increase in economic PRODUCTIVITY will end the world! GLOOM!

    (One MAN runs a backhoe REPLACING 50 workers with shovels or 1000 workers WITH BARE hands! BAN BACKHOES and SHOVELS!)

    The end of brick and mortar retail was inevitable. (BAN the INTERNETS!!) Their loss is FEDEX, USPS and UPS’s gain, though.

    And UNFUNDED LIABILITIES! Trillions! Assuming a modest 2% growth/year the cumulative US GDP by 2100 is about 3200 trillion. And isn’t the yearly defense budget and unfunded liability? Nearly a trillion a year!

    World wide anarchy is around the corner.

    The proverbial shit is about to hit the fan

    DOOM GLOOM DOOM!!
