    Assumes that all of thier assumptions are in fact, facts. 🙂

  3. "The study used computer models to simulate how the ranges of 1,103 species – plants, mammals, birds, reptiles, frogs, butterflies and other invertebrates – are expected to move in response to changing temperatures and climate. "

    Hmm…so what what we’re talking about here is a study based on computer models that are themselves based on OTHER computer models, some of whose inputs (for example, that we’ll still be using the same energy sources in the same proportions 100 years from now as we are today) are extremely suspect (look back 100 years at the transportation and energy industries and ask yourself how likely it is that their assumptions are correct).

    I’d say that it would be reasonable to take their predictions with a large grain of salt.
