In Antarctica, an up close look at climate change | Environmental Defense Fund
[Global warming hoax promoter Eric Pooley] The Adélie is not in danger of extinction, at least not yet. Several million of the birds are scattered about Antarctica, which is warming at different rates in different places and even has areas that have cooled as stratospheric ozone depletion has changed wind patterns. (The damaged ozone layer is slowly being repaired, thanks to a global ban on chlorofluorocarbons, so this local cooling likely won’t last.) Adélie populations are shifting south, to bays that used to be too icy in summer but now have the right mix of ice, open water, and snow-free beach. But there is a limit to how far south the Adélie can move: They need winter light to hunt, and below the Antarctic Circle, it is just too dark for that. Sooner or later, unless humankind stops pumping carbon pollution into the air, climate change will chase the bird down.
Obama Administration Denies Protection to Arctic Seal Threatened by Global Warming
ANCHORAGE, Alaska— The Obama administration today denied Endangered Species Act protection to Arctic ribbon seals. These seals depend on sea ice in the Bering and Chukchi seas off Alaska and are mainly threatened by global warming and the consequent loss of its sea-ice habitat, as well as dangerous oil development. The decision comes just two weeks after President Obama’s speech on the importance of addressing the climate crisis.

In 1992 upon Rio treaty, 12.3% of global energy was carbon free. Today 13.1%. At that rate of growth CO2 will be stabilized in 686 years.

Vindicated is not the word I'd use, more like indicted.
