To The Herald-Whig:
This is an addendum to William Postle's Jan. 3 letter to The Herald-Whig on the alleged man-made global warming hoax.
The climate change data reporting animals shrinking in size and mass is not exactly new. In recent decades, scientists have observed an inverse relationship between animal size and temperature averages. As global temps go up, size goes down in animals ranging from salamanders to sheep, from red deer to bears in Chicago.
Unfortunately, global warming does not shrink the Chicago Bears or other human animals. Global warming will not shrink my beer gut.
