"Scientists from the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig in Bonn (ZFMK) sounding the alarm. Climate change could lead to the end of all turtle species. "
Under the heading of "the turtles from dying?" Again shocked the religious climate Bonner General-Anzeiger be too loyal readership (28.2.2012).

220 million years long so that the air temperature was always and always stable, consistently pleasant and friendly for the armored carrier multiplication? Probably not.
For 30 million years turtles survive the current ice age (at least one of the poles glaciated), called "Känozoiosches Ice Age".
Wikipedia knows : "The Anpassungsfähigkei tons of turtles has been able to keep their heads up to the present time." adaptability to all Klimafährnisse - that was to be expected with a track record of 220 million years! Turtles put the people so easily into the pocket.

Drift net fishing, the turtle as a pest in the eyes of the farmers of the country of origin, herbicides, pesticides, road construction ...
Conclusion: The climate is the least to blame, that the turtles are already clear - since 220 million years, through all the heat and through cold periods.
What they can not handle, is the human indulgence.
