Yes, I think we know how this one goes:
Climate change and illegal logging could wipe out rainforest wildlife by 2100
Most of the plants and animals found in rainforests today could die out by the end of the century because of climate change and illegal logging, according to a new study
The qualifier of \”logging\” will quickly get dropped and the meme that climate change will wipe out the rain forests will spread.
What would be interesting would be to find out what the report itself actually says about the impact of each different cause but it\’s paywalled unfortunately.
Daniel Nepstad, an ecologist at the Woods Hole Research Center in Massachusetts, said only a cut in greenhouse gases can save the world’s wildlife.
\”This study is the strongest evidence yet that the world\’s natural ecosystems will undergo profound changes — including severe alterations in their species composition — through the combined influence of climate change and land use,\” he said.
“Conservation of the world\’s biota, as we know it, will depend upon rapid, steep declines in greenhouse gas emissions.\”
Oh look, it\’s happening already. And Nepstead was one of those behind the dodgy bits in Amazongate as well.
