Scientists have found 'striking evidence' of extensive southward migration of tropical fish and declines in other species due to climate change.

If they go too far south they will run into Antarctica. They will just have to adapt or die. As will we all.

noted.....the world is changing....and not for the good....when they get to Antarctica they will find no where to go.....just like the animals escaping the heat up mountains who will also eventually run out of space....

Cree Prophecy:
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.

Chief Seattle, 1854
Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

Trees moisten and cool air, retain water in soil and filter water.
Deforestation creates drought, heat, aridity, dust bowls, warming and drying of soil, air and water.
If 1 person exchanges eating meat / animal products for a vegan diet, they'll reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5 tons per year.
If every American dropped one serving of chicken per week from their diet, it would save the same amount of CO2 emissions as taking 500,000 cars off the road.
Chickens, turkeys, pigs and cows are collectively the largest producer of methane in the U.S.
Methane is 20x more powerful at trapping heat in the Earth's atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
The meat, egg, and dairy industries produce 65% of worldwide nitrous oxide emissions.
Nitrous Oxide is 300x more powerful at trapping heat in the Earth's atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
1 calorie from animal protein requires 11x as much fossil fuel as 1 calorie of plant protein.
The diets of meat eaters create 7x the greenhouse emissions as the diet of vegans.
Nearly half of all water used in the U.S. goes to raising animals for human food.
It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat.
1 pound of wheat takes 25 gallons.
You'd save more water by not eating one lb of meat than you would by not taking a shower for 6 months.
A vegan diet requires 300 gallons of water per day vs. meat-eating diet which requires 4,000 gallons per day.
Animals raised for food create 89,000 lbs of excrement per second, none of which benefits from the waste-treatment facilities human excrement does.
Chicken, Hog, and Cattle excrement has polluted 35,000 miles of rivers in 22 states.
Raising animals for human food uses 30% of the Earth's land mass. That's about the same size as Asia! The moon has less area than that, at 14.6 million sq miles.
More than 260 million acres of U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals. Corn destroys to intestines and stomachs of steers and cows. GMOs and pesticides, whether sprayed or systemic, are destroy bees/pollinators, soil, air, human and animal health, and corrupt organic crops.
The equivalent of 7 football fields of land are bulldozed every minute to create room for farmed animals.
Livestock grazing is the number one cause of plant species becoming threatened or going extinct in the U.S.
70% of grain and cereals grown in the U.S. are fed to farmed animals. 90% of corn is.
Animals eat large quantities of grain, soybeans, oats, and corn; however, they only produce a comparatively small amount of meat, dairy products, or eggs in return.
It requires 16 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of meat.
5 lbs of wild-caught fish to produce 1 pound of farmed fish.
Acidification of the oceans, coral reef death, dead zones are due to animal waste and "cides" from the GMO crop.

Climate change is very serious.

I've just been reading Noam Chomsky's "Hegemony or Survival" which is rather frightening reading, and which also may be centrally related to the question of whether humanity will be able take action on climate change.

Research Climategate; Global warming is a lie.

Research HAARP

Research Chemtrails

Australia isn't the only country in trouble, so is South America and so will all the other countries be if we don't do something about climate change now. I think it's too late, but you never know.
