I was watching An Inconvenient Truth this morning when our narrator Al Gore mentioned something that caught my attention (Well, all of it caught my attention, but this caught it in particular). Gore mentioned that global warming can have an effect on when particular species hatch for the summer. Sometimes, the hatching does not coincide with the hatching of other species that feed on them. Consequently, a large number of species are in danger.
I read an article in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle a few days ago; it was an AP article, so it’s probably still out there somewhere. The article said that school lunch programs were having a hard time finding turkeys for their Thanksgiving dinners, not because of a shortage of turkeys but because a hotter than average summer produced smaller than average turkeys.
