A billboard near Ohio State University campus was unveiled as part of a campaign to save the Ohio Buckeye tree Friday, Sept. 12, 2008, in Columbus, Ohio. The campaign was launched to increase awareness about global warming and its impact on Ohio's health, economy, jobs, and environment. (Jay Laprete/AP/ Pew Environment Group )

(AP) -- It's not the best-researched global-warming theory, but it could be the most horrifying to certain fans of college football: Environmentalists said Friday that climate change might push the growing range of Ohio's iconic buckeye tree out of the state, leaving it for archrival Michigan.

"The coalition doesn't have any evidence that the buckeye's range has been pushed north but says global warming threatens to make that happen."

We have never needed evidence before, so we thought this would be just fine. Anyway, if we do need evidence, it can be manufactured in a week or so.

Just because the campaign is built on a lie, does NOT mean it's not the right thing to do.

No need for evidence in politics, especially when it comes to controverses, the one who shouts the loudest will be heard.

Unortunatly the louder people shout the shallower the discussion will be and any nuances are ignored.

If you want truth ,ignore the shouting guys.

Mike: i really cant tell if you are serious or not, well done;)

Mike is great like that.

and so are AGW articles that start with

"It's not the best-researched global-warming theory"

and ends with

"'Humans are the cause of this warming, and that's no longer a debate among scientists,' he said. "
