    Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today. Until recently, discussions have focused on emissions from the industrial and energy sectors. However, awareness of the role of deforestation and land degradation in the climate change equation is increasing. Forested lands and grasslands are rapidly disappearing around the world for a variety of causes, including agricultural clearing, catastrophic fires, poor land management and destructive logging practices.

    Climate change has taken place since the beginning of the world. It will continue to change, whether we influence it slightly or not. As George Carlin once said, "...in the end, regardless what we do, the earth will simply shake us off like a bad case of fleas."

    Climate change speeds up extinctions...
    :cool:
    Climate change models flawed, extinction rate likely higher than predicted
    January 6, 2012 - Current predictions overlook two important factors: the differences in how quickly species relocate and competition among species.

    WHOA! STOP THE PRESSES!!!!

    Jeez, you've figure out something that thousands of professional scientists who have studied for years didn't even consider! Climate change has happened before! NO ONE KNEW THAT! QUICK - you must PUBLISH your groundbreaking discovery!!!! There's NO WAY anyone thought of that before!

    They found more then 18,000 new species over the last 3 years. Way more. Anyone who ascribes extinctions to "climate change" is a fool. Or hopes to make money by passing legislation to enrich them.
