Climate change has made a mammal extinct, great job humanity

The long-tailed, whiskered creature lived only on Bramble Cay, a tiny island between Australia and Papua New Guinea, and was thought to be the only mammal native to the Great Barrier Reef.

Its extinction has been blamed on high tides causing ‘surging seawater’, which has destroyed the rodent’s habitat and food source.

  • It’s not dead, just pining.

    • Not to worry, it’ll be back next week “unexpectedly”.

      The important thing is that the AGW message was reinforced again today.

    So a rat that likely was introduces by sailors in the early 1800’s is booming in 1845 as an introduced species. Then in the 1970’s scientists decide it’s been isolated long enough its now a seperate species and because there are so few its endangered… now its gone and they blaim global warming?

    How about it ate all the prey?

    It starved to death when its sole digestable food, baloneyum liberalus, was completely harvested and made into health supplement fluids to help keep Hitlery, Merkel, Hollande, and Emperor Barry in the pink, mentally speaking. Not enough was processed to share any with Shiny Pony.

    I was drunk…dead drunk at the time but I had a rat they tell me chewing the calluses on my feet.
    Once I awoke and a couple off cockroaches the size of beer cans were slurping the pooled sweat in my sternum.
    I naturally freaked out as I am wont to do…that that was in Madame Vinats guest house in Orange Grove Honduras.
    I will never forget that old whore Vinat……

      As I watched some of the Olympics last night, I kept thinking the athletes in the ocean events are swimming in the other athletes crap …

  • What if it’s still there but identifying as another species?
