“Climate Change” Does Some Good! The California Murre Returns To Prince Island!!! December 20, 2011

Posted by Michael in News.

I figure, if the AGW alarmists are going to blame CO2 for the perilous condition of polar bears (which is not actually happening), we energy consumers should take credit for good news.

“This is an exciting finding — certainly a historic one,” said Josh Adams, a seabird ecologist with the USGS Western Ecological Research Center. “The murres appear to have reestablished their former southern range, perhaps benefiting from present ocean conditions.”  [COLD FRICKIN’ WATER!]

“Conditions in the Santa Barbara Channel have been exceptionally productive during the past decade,” Adams said in a statement. “Although many factors affect population redistribution and recovery, no doubt the murres at Prince Island are benefiting from relatively cool summertime waters, increased ocean productivity, and changes in forage-fish availability.”
