Junk scientists predict that CO2-induced unpredictable cooling and warming will be "too extreme for amphibians to deal with"

The biggest obstacles facing the amphibians are not mountain ranges and other physical barriers, the study found. Instead, it's the unpredictable nature of projected climate changes that threatens them most. Instead of getting gradually and consistently warmer, temperatures will roller coaster in ways "too extreme for amphibians to deal with".

"Every time it gets warmer, they can move, but when it gets cooler again, they can’t move far enough and they get stuck," Early said. "It's like taking two steps forward and one step back."
