Daniel Botkin wonders why past changes in climate haven’t caused the decritterization that’ll apparently be caused by future changes:
This year’s United Nations report on climate change and other documents say that 20%-30% of plant and animal species will be threatened with extinction in this century due to global warming—a truly terrifying thought. Yet, during the past 2.5 million years, a period that scientists now know experienced climatic changes as rapid and as warm as modern climatological models suggest will happen to us, almost none of the millions of species on Earth went extinct.
Perhaps they simply moved out of their deadly Manhattan penthouses.
