There are 10 comments on the RedOrbit story from Aug 19, 2012, titled How Does Climate Change Affect Animals?. In it, RedOrbit reports that:

As part of an effort to better understand and predict how animals will respond to changing environmental conditions associated with global warming , researchers at the University of California-Berkeley have published a pair of studies investigating why some species move in response to climate change and where they go.

How will the animals respond to climate change? How will they know what to do?

Basically, a 'shuffle' ahead. Good luck to everybody.

Of course, plants are already responding to AGW in great effects. Native tribes around the world are affected in different & similar ways as the animals & plants are. More passing years will & have already affected different echelons of humans.

All plants & animals, including humans are involved in the planet changes. Details coming in these perils of plants, pups, potato bugs & Paulines.

Please explain, in detail, if you would be so kind, how a 0.74ºC increase in global temperature has achieved this amazing feat and would the end result have been any different had global temperature not increased 0.74ºC over the last 162 years?

Recent record high temperatures exceeding record lows.
Growing seasons lengthening.
Warmer nights.
Ocean heat content increasing.
More wildfires.
Earlier snow melts.
Earlier and longer fire season.
Snow fields melting earlier.
Loss of snow cover.
Loss of permafrost.
Melting glaciers.
Retreating glaciers.
Arctic sea ice extent and volume in decline.
Loss of ice from Greenland.
Loss of ice from the Antarctic.
Rising sea levels.
Increasing ocean acidity.
Movement of plant species.
Migration of bird species.
Timing of breeding.
Appearing of flowers in spring.
Butterfly emergence.
Movement of agricultural zones.

And all because of a 0.74ºC increase in global temperature over the last 162 years.
Who'da thunk it.

Let's go back to LIA temperatures and see how the warmistas like it.

This past July 5th the official temperature here in Milwaukee was 105°F if it weren't for "Global Warming" it would have been 104. Back in March Chicago had a record 82 and it would have been 81 were it not for "Global Warming".

But then that's not the way our wonderful media reports the relationship is it?

Hmm, with a couple of exceptions, that nearly all sounds like good news.

Our friends on the left never want to acknowledge that there are benefits to having a warmer world wide climate.

You're naive political wishful thinking is not playing out, is it?

Far from your idealogical dreams of a warmer world benefiting agriculture, the US has seen droughts, floods and heat waves which have have had exactly the opposite effect: crop yield are down.

This is the future with AGW. Time for the US right to stop trying to create its own reality and recognise the facts, as many rational Republicans do: warming is real, we're responsible, and the results are not going to be good.

Sure just like you explain everything in detail. To date it’s more useless babble. Hay either you were born with a deficiency or the climate change or no climate change has had an affect on you.
