The climate changes and its repercussions are becoming more and more evident with each passing day. Different species are learning to live with these  changes. This fact has been epitomized by a research study on Emperor Penguins who were found to be adapting fast to the changing climate. The study was carried out by researchers at the University of Minnesota.

The study was conducted over a period of three years and the researchers found that the Penguins had six instances of changing sites where they would eventually breed.

It was a common belief that Penguins stuck to their breeding sites. However recent satellite imagery has revealed that the Emperor Penguins are not returning back to the spots where they were breeding.

Lead author Michelle LaRue said “Our research showing that colonies seem to appear and disappear throughout the year’s challenges behaviors we thought we understood about emperor penguins. If we assume that these birds come back to the same locations every year, without fail, these new colonies we see on satellite images wouldn’t make any sense. These birds didn’t just appear out of thin air—they had to have come from somewhere else.”

The conclusions of the study were presented by lead author Michelle LaRue at the IDEACITY conference in Toronto and the study will be published in the Ecography journal. The researchers have gleaned the information that penguins are moving from colonies to colonies and the team intends to continue research as to why they do it.

Satellite imagery has been a great boon in the study of Emperor Penguins in Pointe Géologie which once had a thriving Penguin population but is now believed to be falling. The latest findings are an aberration in the normal pattern of behavior and have led the researchers to rethink on how they construe these fluctuations

    Happens to humankind as well. The US Southwest (and other spots around the globe) are covered with human settlements that have been abandoned due to climate change. The Navajo called them Anasazi.

    Populations adapting to climate change with a new behavior is different from members of a population learning to adopt the new behavior. With a sufficiently strong climate change, the new behavior may mean survival but the old one death, so that with no learning at all, the entire population shifts to the new behavior. Nothing in this study addressed whether learning was involved.

    Climate alarmists think that the Earth is a given, that everything is supposed to somehow stay in some suspended reality. The Earth is a large, changing rock revolving around a dying star and man is simply along for the ride and your mommy can’t to make it stay like when you were a little child.

    Not that it surprises me, but if you look at the original article this moving from site to site has no immediate connection to warming, rather it is something the penguins have always done.

    Next, I am waiting to see how CO2 emissions are causing the volcanos under the ice sheets to increase in activity…

    Wow .
    Penguins adapt to their environment.
    I guess Darwin may have been right after all.
    And to think that via global warming alarmists I was led to believe that all animals are doomed because of blazing temperatures and apathy.

      don’t worry, there’s plenty of animals that can’t adapt as easily.

      not to mention New york’s not about to stop being on a harbor.

      Let’s see: Obviously, if one species that has learned to survive in the world’s harshest environment shows a remarkable capacity to adapt quickly, then all species are safe from extinction. Silly warming alarmists! To think, you all thought everything was going to disappear! Oh, and by the way, most of the world’s climate scientists are still lining their pockets by scaring the foolish, and only the oil company scientists can be trusted. Right?

      Some animals are doomed because there are people who think that they can pick and choose which fields of science to accept as long as it does not contradict their ideology or theology. If it does, then they make up ever increasingly bizarre conspiracy theories, only listen to an echo chamber of talking heads to tell them that they’re still right, and say things out loud that if they actually had an education, would be embarrassed by.

      There are many species who we know have migrated to higher altitudes. Guess what, you can only go so far up a mountain. You cannot acclimate if your food source goes away. You cannot quickly acclimate if a new predator, harmful parasite, or mold is now able to survive in your habitat. Acclimation is a process spanning eons, not decades.

      The worst part is that when a person says, “I don’t accept that a Hydrogen atom has one proton,” there is no amount of evidence, reason, or objective peer reviewed evidence that will ever alter their world view. They have chosen to place their *faith* in either their church, and/or media who thrive on the obfuscation of science. At the end of the day, there is absolutely no difference between someone who denies the science of Climate Change, and someone who thinks the sun orbits the Earth.

        Good clear undeniable points, Mike. Beats me how folks, most of whom have a high school education, still struggle to see the multiplied evidence. Stranger yet are politicians who risk their constituents’ and their families’ futures for votes.
