Cute fluffy creatures threatened by "climate change"
How to push the warming scare. First, pick a loved icon and hold a gun to its head.
The Sydney Moonbat Herald chooses the koala, and claims that "climate change" will cause the cute cuddly koalas to die in greater numbers.
Dan Lunney told a conference of the NSW Nature Conservation Council that rising greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere would push up toxins and lower nutrients in eucalyptus leaves.
As leaf quality dropped and bush fires intensified, koalas would be forced to roam further afield as they foraged for food in shrinking bushland surrounded by farms, housing developments and logging operations.
Koalas, like many other animals, have clearly adapted perfectly well to "climate change" in the past (when it couldn't possibly be due to the evil emissions of unregulated capitalism), including periods of significantly lower temperatures, which would have made life far more difficult than the gentle warming we have experienced since the end of the Little Ice Age.
But this is the Herald we're talking about, so unless there's an alarmist angle, it won't get printed.
