    Cold empties Bolivian rivers of fish
    Antarctic cold snap kills millions of aquatic animals in the Amazon.

    Anna Petherick


    The San Julián fish farm in the Santa Cruz department of Bolivia lost 15 tonnes of pacú fish in the extreme cold.
    Never TejerinaWith high Andean peaks and a humid tropical forest, Bolivia is a country of ecological extremes. But during the Southern Hemisphere's recent winter, unusually low temperatures in part of the country's tropical region hit freshwater species hard, killing an estimated 6 million fish and thousands of alligators, turtles and river dolphins.

    Scientists who have visited the affected rivers say the event is the biggest ecological disaster Bolivia has known, and, as an example of a sudden climatic change wreaking havoc on wildlife, it is unprecedented in recorded history.

    "There's just a huge number of dead fish," says Michel Jégu, a researcher from the Institute for Developmental Research in Marseilles, France, who is currently working at the Noel Kempff Mercado Natural History Museum in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. "In the rivers near Santa Cruz there's about 1,000 dead fish for every 100 metres of river."

    One of the primary predictions of the climate change caused by the global warming is that there will be wider and wilder swings in the weather, with an overall warming trend. That is exactly what we are seeing.

    The instant that we post something concerning abnormal weather patterns that involve cold, you silly asses immediatly start the "Blame everything including Uncle Tom's gout on global warming".

    You fellows and gals really present your side as being products of the short bus. You are either engaged in mindless derision, or you present obvious lies.
