ABC – disease not climate change killing frogs

Through gritted teeth, the ABC has to concede that a decline in frog populations is caused by a fungal disease and has nothing to do with “climage change”.

More than 50 frog species in the Americas and at least four in Australia have been wiped out.

Initially global warming was thought to help the fungus spread but this has been ruled out.

So I eagerly await the correction from News.com.au regarding this gem published earlier this month and commented on here:

Going, going … primatologist Dr Jane Goodall with a Splendid Tree Frog at Adelaide Zoo. Adelaide, Berlin, London and San Francisco Zoos are starting a frog insurance program because they are dying out all over the world due to climate change.

How long do you think I’ll have to wait?
