    You miss my point. The condition in the Kalahari are ... toasty ... now. The area still supports kudu and other large animals. When global warming get bad larger areas will experience those kind of conditions. And life carries on there. The Kalahari-type areas will probably be high desert, but the chance exists that other areas will become similar to the pre-AGW Kalahari. Neither of us can know that one way or the other for sure.

    A fine reminder that weather isn't climate.

    small steps I guess keeping the cooling in the Southern hemisphere will preven't sudden mayor changes in the northern hemisphere (where 87% of the human population live) worst case scenario A relativly small piece at antartica get's cooled during th local winter (for most of you that's summer) and basicly cool the region belov the freezing point of co2 and start collecting it, dig a deep hole locally and burry it (semi safe). Worst case scenario where back where we started as the CO2 escapes and their are some local weather anomalies around the antarctic sea.[/quote]

    Just for a general overview of the state of earth's ecosphere, mainly due to man's activity;
    It seems that man's intelligence has made us an global invasive species:

    No flora, no fauna!
