Are Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy married? – Muppet Wiki
Yes, the money for ‘global warming’s studies is flowing like the Mighty Mississippi and every possible graduate student and professor is jumping aboard the global warming Good Ship Lollipop to write ‘studies’ that prove with zero proof that someday in the future everything is going to roast to death and die and that this period of time is the warmest time in earth’s history which is utterly insane since we are in the middle of the Ice Age era and all eras before this, for the most part, were far warmer than today and frogs and toads evolved way back before dinosaurs and survived a number a major extinction events to croak at us today in mockery.
Claim: Climate change could leave Pacific Northwest amphibians high and dry | Watts Up With That?
“We’ve seen that the lack of winter snowpack and high summer temperatures have resulted in massive breeding failures and the death of some adult frogs,” said co-author Wendy Palen, an associate professor at Canada’s Simon Fraser University who has for many years studied mountain amphibians in the Pacific Northwest. “More years like 2015 do not bode well for the frogs.”…
…According to the study, more than half of the intermediate wetlands are projected to convert to fast-drying ephemeral wetlands by the year 2080. These most vulnerable ponds are the same ones that now provide the best habitat for frogs and salamanders.
Here is my comment:
About frogs and toads: I grew up in the Arizona deserts at Kitt Peak.
When rains come, suddenly there are zillions of tadpoles in every puddle and pond including in rock depressions on the mountain itself. We used to collect some of these to put in our own ponds to watch them turn first into tiny frogs and toads and the grow rapidly in less than two weeks into adults who mate and deposit eggs in the ground for the next monsoon burst of rain.
THIS IS A DRY DESERT! Yet the noise of these creatures croaking and chirping during the evening is very loud and strong. Drought years: they don’t happen. The 50 year drought during the Little Ice Age, when it ended, the same desert toads and frogs reappeared as if nothing happened.
Anyone studying any amphibians in the West should know this basic information for it is true for all Western amphibians.
Aside from this, the fact that amphibians which once ruled the land masses, and grew to immense size, and were croakingly happy dominating the entire earth before the dinosaurs arose and attacked them so viciously…oh my. Now they are generally smaller to evade predators. BBC Nature – Amphibians videos, news and facts
Good lord! The gigantic amphibian which lived in a much, much warmer world, was bigger than the biggest crocodile, another critter that managed to evolve in the hot world, survived the destruction of the dinosaurs and so far has thrived during all the Ice Ages and the Interglacials and they eat humans and other large mammals.
Is there a study going on now predicting that turtles will be killed by warm weather, too? I bet there is! The only reason various Ice Age huge mammals went extinct is due to humans killing them off but again, not all. The cattle and horses were domesticated and are very much still with us. The gigantic mastodons didn’t survive. I often wished they did but humans were responsible for this just like we are killing wild animals in Africa at a frightful pace.
I want nature preserved but not being silly about it or manufacturing total lies about how say, amphibians, react to natural conditions. Without the slightest doubt, amphibians worldwide much prefer warm weather. True, some managed to evolve so they can hibernate where it is very cold but all the poor frogs living in Canada and parts of the US all died when mile thick glaciers covered everything for 100,000 years at a time!
All frogs living above the Ice Age glacier line are newcomers living there only in the last 10,000 years or less. Note that these fake ‘scientists’ don’t mention this important fact.
