Devastating Rise in New Species. Global Warming the Culprit?

This is what I find funny. Last week we saw a picture of a couple polar bears standing on an ice floe. According to the story, they're STRANDED! Global warming is causing this cuddly duo to slowly die. You want proof? Look at the picture--they're standing on an ice floe.

Contrast that with this. In the last few months, I've seen several stories about huge new finds of literally thousands of species. Many many more species are being discovered than are dying, despite the endless haranguing from the global warm-ongers.

Is global warming to blame? If so, then let's encourage some more. Surely, this proliferation of new species can only be a good thing.

Of course, for the pessimist, it's just another huge list of animals that are about to be threatened with extinction. And by "pessimist" I mean one of those crafty purveyors of consensus science.

Ok, I'm done venting. Read the story.
