Reference: Warming threatens penguins, Bangkok Post, December 12, 2007

The planet's climate is ever changing and these changes can cause the extinction of some species even as a burst of evolution creates new species better suited to the new conditions (Warming threatens penguins, Bangkok Post, December 12, 2007). The penguins themselves are a product of this process. They are flightless and not well dispersed and therefore at risk of extinction but that extinction, if it happens, will lead to a new species and even greater biodiversity. This is how nature works. Nature does not need environmentalists, much less UN bureaucrats, to micromanage these processes nor is such micromanagement possible.
