Pikas, Polar Bears, Penguins Go Extinct

Polar bears can’t survive without sea ice, and they all died of shock this summer after the record minimum was announced. The warm summer in Colorado killed all the Pikas, and the excess ice in Antarctica caused the Penguins to have to march too far – so they all died.

    Steve: Here is an excellent (and relatively new) site on polar bears:

    http://polarbearscience.com/

    Here is an excerpt from the author’s bio:

    “Dr. Susan J. Crockford is a zoologist with more than 35 years experience, including work on the Holocene history of Arctic animals.”

    It makes sense, it all makes sense because of the Sun and the oceans are not masking the effects.
    In fact, it’s quite simple.
    Contrary to GW, it’s pure logic: you just put the various pieces together and obtain a final coherent result. When you add some theory to explain the details behind the observations, you get a scientific description, a true scientific description.
    I don’t think they will ever know how to do that.

      I should have posted this on the “Another Antarctic Ice record” thread, but it’s OK, we’re here in a friendly environment!:-) …

  3. And to remind us of our sins, the pika ghosts haunting the mountains in southern Colorado where I vacationed for a week in late July continued their mournful wailing …… er, squeaking. Observe their little dead bodies now in this live cam as bumps under the snow up there: http://www.visittelluride.com/discover-telluride/photos/webcams

    Abstract
    Well-preserved remains of bone, tissue, and eggshell of Adélie Penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) have been recovered from numerous abandoned colonies in the Ross Sea region, Antarctica. Radiocarbon dates on these remains provide an occupation history for this species ranging from hundreds to tens of thousands of years ago. We completed 62 new radiocarbon dates on these remains, which now indicate that an open-water marine environment existed in the Ross Sea from ca. 45,000 to 27,000 14C yr before present (B.P.) and provide constraints for the timing of the last advance of the Ross Ice Sheet. Penguins did not recolonize the Ross Sea until ca. 8000 calendar years (cal yr) B.P., after the early Holocene retreat of the Ross Ice Sheet. Two subsequent periods of abandonment at 5000 4000 and 2000 1100 cal yr B.P. correlate with cooling episodes that caused unfavorable marine conditions for breeding penguins. Most modern colonies were established only within the past 2000 yr.

    You have to be careful putting up stuff like this. These days people are inclined to believe this sort of thing is actually true.

    “If Stirling has up-to-date information that conclusively demonstrates how dire this situation is, why on earth has he – or whoever collected it – not published that data?”

    All of those animals are millions of years old. They have lived through numerous climate changes. It’s preposterous to say that now they are endangered because of AGW. If anything, AGW would svae them. The heat allows them to gather more food and multiply. Bears like heat, and so do seals.
