Yohe on Warming’s Impact on Species Extinction

A recent story in The New York Times cites a study co-authored by Gary Yohe, Huffington Foundation Professor of Economics and Environmental Studies, that showed the effects of global warming on the natural ranges of animals worldwide. The study showed that the ranges are moving on average nearly 4 miles toward the global poles each decade. Scientists are struggling with how this range expansion affects ecosystems worldwide.

The study is also the subject of commentary in the recent issue of Forbes, as well.
