Overrun by goats

  "Spot the Climate Scientist"
Mother Nature Nonsense has added another page to the Global-Warming-causes-everything tome with the addition of the image of rampaging feral goat herds terrifying the populace.

 Global warming is already causing serious problems all around the planet, from stronger storms and longer droughts to rising seas and expanding diseases. But at the same time, it's also spurring lots of less serious, even innocuous phenomena — trumpeter swans are thriving in Alaska, for example, while Rocky Mountain marmots arefeeling friskier.
 
And according to a new study published in the ecology journal Oikos, feral goats may also flourish on this thin, ephemeral silver lining of climate change. Whether that would be good news for anyone but goats, however, remains to be seen.
Of course if the Alaskan trumpeter swans have been revelling in the warmer weather their party may be short-lived given the current temperature trends which are distinctly negative as the temperature cycles downward.
Colder
Bitter cold records being set this winter in Alaska will not help these beautiful birds either and maybe a common sense solution needs to be found which does not rely on the chimera of global warming.
