I love the stories of changing animal behavior due to ‘climate change.’ I have read that Southern Pine Beetle’s are more active because of Global Warming. This seems odd since the southeastern US has actually cooled over the past 50 years. Now there is a story about more active caterpillars on the Isle of Wight due to ‘climate change.” It happens that the last couple of years have been remarkably cold in Great Britain. This brings up two questions that I haven’t seen the climate hysterics answer: first, how is the information that global warming is happening transmitted to the little critters since they cannot detect it from their local environment? And, why do the little critters become more active given that temperature is supposed to influence their energy level, and the environment they experience is actually getting cooler?
