Response to TwilightZone (Reply #5)

23. Hopefully but,

the big difference here is that the expected temperature increases are occurring over a much briefer time interval (decades instead of thousands or millions of years). Gradual temperature increases/decreases give species a much better chance of successfully adapting (evolving) to the changes. This won't happen with what is happening now and mass extinctions (and maybe including humans) are pretty much inevitable.

Getting old sucks but sometimes I'm glad about it.....
