The theory of animal shrinkage is another liberal communistic myth that meant to justify the occupation of NYC Wall Street liberal gang revolutionists. Liberals wants to push forward big government with lots of more taxes including global warming fraudulent tax that enriched the deceitful Al Gore with hundred million dollars. There is cyclical change in the world climate that result from changes on the temperature of the sun, which affects the changes in temperatures on planet earth. The changes cause draught in one place and flooding in another, which affects the growth of plantation. However, due to the cyclical changes, the overall size of animals that eat plants is changing in cyclical way and so is the change in larger animals that eat small animal. Liberalism is trying to use deceitful theories, trying to tax and ruin the world's economy with lies about fictitious "problems of the world and the stars system around the sun" that never were affected by mankind taxes to one corrupt communistic government of Obama or another.

The smaller frog looks healthier, with better muscle tone. I would rather be robust than "big".

Besides that, warming at the current level doesn't appear to be stunting the abundance of life on the planet.
