Not that we can do much in the short term, but couldn't we try a bit harder to give them a few extra days protection each year?

  1. It's a travesty what man has done to the animal and plant kingdom to now. And I expect evolution wont be able to keep up with AGW for millions of species in the future.

    Unfortunatley your bunny picture wont strike a chord with the denialists. It will however evoke a dumb, blank, Sarah Palin like stare and an urging for a 22 rifle in hand.
