Another study shows Global Climate Change impacts

Wow, another study was just published on the negative impacts of Global Climate Change on species and geographic areas. This study is, " . . . review of 866 scientific studies is summed up in the journal Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution and Systematics." The study author and others, " . . . have been predicting such changes for years, but even she was surprised to find evidence that it's already happening; she figured it would be another decade away."

The report states that some species are already going extinct. This study also reports that "cold dependent species on mountaintops have nowhere to go" which raises my concerns for White-tailed Ptarmigan, a species that lives on the western edge on the high mountains in SE Colorado.
