For those serious about science and species, book and reviews here: http://www.amazon.com/CO2-Global-Warming-Species-Extinctions/dp/0981969402/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1327547485&sr=8-4

[SPPI Note: Likely one of the most notoriously unscientific groups is the Center for Biodiversity, which files reams of listings for species endangerment based on deeply flawed models, statistical manipulations and bald ignorance of the broader sciences. A multititute of papers in the literature attest to this:

Biodiversity

Summary
Among Genotypes
C3 Plants vs. C4 Plants
Fungi
General
Grasslands
Marine Species
N-Fixers vs. Non-N-Fixers

Climate alarmists have historically predicted catastrophic species extinctions based on the presumption that CO2-induced global warming will be so fast and furious that many species of plants and animals will not be able to migrate either poleward in latitude or upward in altitude rapidly enough to remain within the “climate envelope” to which they are accustomed.
