The world’s climate alarmists contend that CO2-induced global warming will lead to numerous extinctions of both plants and animals. Initially, this claim was based solely on models of how they thought Earth’s climate behaved in response to increases in various atmospheric greenhouse gases, contending that the increases in temperature predicted to result from projected increases in the air’s CO2 content would be so great and occur so rapidly that many species would not be able to migrate either poleward in latitude or upward in elevation rapidly enough to avoid extinction in their attempts to find suitable (i.e., cooler) living conditions.
