Claim: Climate Change is Endangering CrocodilesPosted: December 19, 2015
Australia is making plans to cull the population of crocs in the Kimberley’s due to the population having tripled over the past 30 years.
So, going by the ‘warming = croc decline’ theory, does that mean northern Aus has been cooling over the past 30 years?! Happy happy joy joy – planet saved!
Sarcastic stupid analogy, though just as stupid as this latest ‘climate change’ tagged study out of yet another global-warming-causes-everything, CO2 obsessed university study.
Publish or perish is the name of the game and if “climate change” doesn’t preface your study, you aint publishing nothing.
What a ‘croc’ of sh*t. (Apologise for profanity, but it was begging for it.)

A study by University of Queensland Professor Craig Franklin claims that crocodiles may be endangered by global warming.
According to the Press Release;
Professor Craig Franklin of the UQ School of Biological Sciences said saltwater crocodiles exposed to long-term elevated water temperature spent less time submerged once water temperature exceeded 31.5 degrees Celsius.
“We thought that crocodiles – like many animals – would adjust to temperature changes so life continues,” he said.
“However, we were surprised to find they had little capacity to compensate for water temperature changes and seemed to be hard-wired to operate at certain temperatures.
“We are not sure what this means, but it’s likely that if the water is too hot, crocodiles might move to cooler regions, or will seek…
