The media has inundated the public with horror stories suggesting global warming is leading the earthâ??s wildlife into extinction.  Jim Steele presents an ecologistâ??s perspective and critiques the current state of iconic “climate” species from penguins to polar bears to the more local pika and butterflies of California.  While it is wise to think globally, all organisms react locally.  Jim examines how local landscape changes and the local effects of natural climate cycles have been misconstrued as catastrophic global warming, provides a more optimistic analyses and suggests ways we can act locally to build a more resilient environment.
