Wow, it'a almost as if putting more energy into the system causes the system to compensate, resulting in a more powerful jet stream and resulting extreme weather.  Man, if I was a scientist, I would totally be raking in the free grant money to study that.

While U.S. Shivers, Australia And Brazil Sizzle

Gee, I wonder if the tilt of the axis of the Earth has something to do with that, and that global warming doesn't mean "It's cold in the United States Northeast during the winter, that means global warming is a myth!"

fusillade762: Wonder what kind of milk they're feeding them. Milking a bat can't be easy.


According to the Tolga Bat Hospital, which mostly works with fruit bats, the "[p]up is fed human infant formula (for infants over 6 months) or full cream cow's milk (with added glucodin) 2-4 hourly depending on age and condition. A botttle and teat is used. If pup is young or a poor feeder we use a syringe to drip the milk into the teat."

Excuse me, I cannot stop "awww"ing at that baby bat picture.

/Cutest bats ever

austin_millbarge: Jesus McSordid: Smelly farkin' disease-ridden bats are dying out there, people. It's a tragedy!

Looks like someone missed the day in science class when they talked about the food chain.


No, I got that, really. But these suckers eat fruit, and spread calicivirus. And their predators are mostly goannas (lace monitors), snakes and crocodiles, which I know I'd miss like I'd miss non-specific urethritis.

wraith95: Omahawg: all the bats here went rabid and seem to have died off. sad. I miss watching their crazy bug swooping antics in the streetlights.

They actually probably got white nose syndrome. It's been spreading westward. Confirmed in jackson county missouri last year.


I should look and see if it's gotten to Chicago yet. Not two years ago I was watching plenty of bats hunting at night - and then it all stopped. :(
Have they figured out anything about that infection?

Also, "The Blaze"? They quoted The freakin Blaze?
The comments under the article are just rich. Buncha mouthbreathing idiots who likely couldn't pass a fifth grade science test.

Wow, 50 Celsius?  That's approaching Death Valley temperatures.

But wait a minute: Fox News told me global warming is a hoax.  It's cold outside today, so this is just more liberal BS to attack the right.

bukijin: it's an example of convergent evolution. Although they look a bit like bats they are actually marsupials. Herbivores and very intelligent - occupying the niche that primates do in other continents.


There is a school of thought that they are related to lemurs, based on taxonomy.

Haven't noticed any flying foxes around, but we have been feeding and watering some of the local (& visiting) bird populations - a couple of varietes of rosellas, lots of rainbow lorikeets, galahs, about three species of duck. Where we are has just started to have rain, last weekend was bad, the parrots were glad for some cool, clean water to drink and bathe in.

Maggie_Luna: Is NPR cruel? You see cute bat babies and then the texts gives a grim fat for their wild brethren. Thanks for the "cute baby and nonbaby bats will die!" Punch to the face.


Seriously.
