If Hurricane Sandy didn’t make you decide climate change is something we all need to sit down figure out, then maybe this news will get your attention: Pandas could be wiped out by climate change. Yes, pandas, one of the “good ones” of the animal world. (“Bad ones": giant sea worms and potato bugs) A new study projecting rising temperatures in China has revealed bamboo could be down by 80 to 100 percent at the end of the 21st century, and bamboo is about the only food pandas eat. (They’re picky.Don’t even try to get them to eat egg salad.) Saving the pandas will depend on either getting bamboo to grow at higher elevations, or working to end climate change. [Source]
