Species multiply as Earth heats up

Biodiversity increases with gentle warming.

The tropics are hotbeds of biodiversity — as, it seems, were warm periods in Earth's history.

Rather than kicking off the expected cycles of extinction, periods of warming in Earth's history were accompanied by increased biodiversity, according to a report published this week. But this does not mean that the mass extinctions that are taking place today, with Earth warming at an unprecedented rate, will be reversed in future. [...]

Interesting new twist to the global warming history.

Although I doubt whether it could apply to the current build up of global temperatures as 'ours' is happening at an an unprecedented speed: in 200/300 years instead of in 5 million years! I don't think the increased biodiversity over that split second in geological time will even be measurable. Let alone have any meaningful significance in the grand scheme of things.

Be careful, or you'll give the denialists more ammo.


Oh what am I kidding, they'll make some old crap up anyway.

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

Best to have some music playing in the background when making old crap up.





Thanks for the link Janus! Few friends of mine work for a biodiversity project in Canada - gonna link them the site, get their views on it. Thumbsup

news is made up crap to you.

the thread is about 'evolution', what could be causing it as mentioned in the thread, not your old antiquated brain?

The problem is the and deoxidization of Earth's water due to the steady decrease of coral and kelp.

I think I mentioned elsewhere that projecting oneself onto others is not healthy.
