blame us for the moose and the wolves!

Global warming is impacting more than the water levels in the Great Lakes.

It could be the beginning of the end for the moose and wolves of Isle Royale. And if it is, a Michigan Technological University scientist places the blame squarely on the human race.

“Humans have made summers increasingly hot, which likely exacerbates moose ticks,” says John Vucetich, a population biologist in Michigan Tech’s School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science.

“Both the heat and the ticks are detrimental to moose. If wolves go extinct for a lack of moose, humans will be to blame.” Science Daily, 22 Aug 2007
