Hanging on Under Diminishing Habitat Shadows

Are Populations Stable?

False Sense of Security

Species may appear deceptively resilient to climate change,

Brutal Tipping Points

Species which would otherwise be cooked by existing global warming are being protected by their legasy habitats. Once our human-induced heating degrades the habitat protecting them, scientists expect lots of these vunerable species to dissappear.

In the meantime we are seeing virtually everything biological is changing its budding, blooming, migration, and breeding timing in attempts to, "catch up," with the changing environment. The climate pressures on various ecosystems and their organisms are uneven.

The research above points out how resiliant ecosystems are sheltering less resiliant species, and once the ecosystem is itself breached by warming, all these once protected species will instantly dissappear. That's a set of Brutal Tipping Points. This should induce an uneasy feeling, as we are already seeing massive ecosystem and species disruptions.

This research indicates the potential for catastrophic unseen tipping points to bring down big chuncks of our ecosystems all at once is rising. Hella dangerous.

We've seen reports of up to half the insect populations of forests dissappearing, among other radical rapid changes in ecosystems everywhere. Having any sense of security in our weather, and the web of life based on it, is False.
