Mass migration towards poles has begun: new Science metastudy shows species move on average 17.6 kilometres per decade
Posted on August 19, 2011 by Rolf Schuttenhelm
Today new climate migration insights were published in Science. They show the process is happing three times as fast as an older (2003) Science metastudy had predicted and close to the actual latitudinal speed of climate change over the last decades in Europe and North America.
In mountainous areas species respond to climate change by moving upslope. Over the last 40 years this has happened at an average speed of 12.2 meters per decade. [In mountains the median migration speed is 11.0 meters per decade, the median latitudinal speed is 16.9 kilometers.]
It is well established that the Northern Hemisphere was very cold during the 1970s. Why is it necessary for the government to keep wasting billions of dollars repeating the same cherry picked study over and over and over again?
Why doesn’t someone do an honest study – which starts in the 1940s? We see 1970s cherry picking in almost every single study coming out now. It is worse than intentionally deceptive, as it is intended to defraud the reader into drawing a wrong conclusion which the larger data set does not support.
