Penguins are Smarter than ‘Climate Change Activists’ they do not Panic
Jess Cockerill on behalf of Science Alert posted an interesting subject, which I received on the 24th of July 2022, titled, ‘Scientists Analyzed Penguin DNA and Found Something Quite Remarkable’. (i)
Allan Ivarsson comments… This subject caught my attention, because I love Penguins, Dolphins and Whales. These animals fascinate me.
“Recently in midyear 2014, I saw a video footage of a pet penguin in Japan. Inside their home near a small village a Japanese couple had built a small room with all of the comforts of home. This penguin every day would walk/waddle down the road with a soft bag strapped on its back to a store. The retailers would pack the goods in the bag and give the penguin a fish to eat. The penguin would then waddle back home and deliver the goods in the backpack. Obviously just like young children are taught, as I was, as a young child, how to walk safely and do the shopping, in the late 1950’s, when Supermarkets did not exist; so too was this penguin taught the same basic skill of walk, pickup and deliver for the reward of a fish.” (ii)
“Damn I didn’t get a fish!” (ii)
“We humans need to erase the vanity in our thinking, and at times we are all guilty of that feeling, and must humble ourselves, by recognising that other animals are indeed smarter, than many of us have thought.” (ii)

An Internet post says… “Penguins are considered ‘fish’ because they can survive in water and spend most of their life in water. Research shows that they spend more than half of their lives in water. On the other hand, they have knees and live on land as well just like mammals.”
A.I. comments… I would not call ‘Penguins’ as being ‘Fish’. I think of Penguins as… ‘Fisherpens’. Different species methods compared to Homo Sapiens ‘Fishermen’.
Penguins are Birds, they have the presence of wings, they lay eggs, they have hollow bones like birds, they do not have paws or legs like mammals. Penguins are warm-blooded, they evolved flightless, they are aquatic seabirds.
Other flightless birds exist like the ostrich, emu and the kiwi and the cassowary and other variant species. Cassowary are good swimmers and can cross wide rivers and swim in the sea. Evolution over three billion years on Gaia/Earth is an amazing process, including extinctions.
Penguins evolved in every Southern Continent from Australia to Africa; most are found in Antarctica and sub-Antarctic Islands. They are tougher than humans, they can survive in the coldest harshest environments on earth, they use a huddling social behaviour to keep warm when needed.
Whilst Climate Change Activists are in Panic unable to cope with Earth’s millions of years climate changes from ‘Freeze’ to ‘Warm’ back to ‘Freeze’ again, others, tougher humans and penguins calmly adapt and change, whilst coward climate change activists overreact in constant panic. We cannot help fools that choose to be ignorant about the 3 billion years prehistory of earth and the last 5,000 years of ancient and medieval history that battled with climate change.
“Penguins are no strangers to climate change. Their life history has been shaped by rising and falling temperatures, and their bodies are highly specialized for some of Earth’s most extreme conditions.” (i)
“And yet, scientists are concerned the evolutionary path of the penguin may be grinding to a halt, thanks to what appears to be the lowest evolutionary rates ever detected in birds.” (i)
A.I. comments… Evolution Process is not always kind, many times it can be cruel. But that is the dark side of life. One thing is true… the wiser live spiritual calm, they never panic, even when apprehension and fear is real. They live by common-sense caution, without being afraid to live wisely and with a sense of adventure.
“A team of international researchers has just published one of the most comprehensive studies of penguin evolution to date, which is the first to integrate data from living and fossil penguin species.” (i)
“The research unveils the tumultuous life history of penguins in general, with three-quarters of all known penguin species – now represented by fossils only – already extinct.” (i)
“Over 60 million years, these iconic birds have evolved to become highly specialized marine predators and are now well adapted to some of the most extreme environments on Earth, the authors write.” (i)
A.I. comments… Compare that 60 million years of Penguin history to when early man began walking upright approximately three million years ago and we are still evolving. There is a high probability that our species evolution began about seven millions years ago. Adam and Eve never existed. We humans lost species that are now extinct, just like penguins lost species.
The Penguins started in evolution process further back than 60 million years ago. What was ‘Imaginary God Creator’ thinking about when he decided to create Penguins first? But then that question is only valid when you worship a ‘God Creator’ that does not exist and has not ever existed. Volumes of science discoveries since the 18th Century now proves ‘God Creator’ does not exist. And all naïve worshippers of ‘God Creator’ are lying to themselves. Even incompetent ex-Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison believes in ‘Imaginary God Creator’.
“Yet, as their evolutionary history reveals, they [Penguins] now stand as sentinels highlighting the vulnerability of cold-adapted fauna in a rapidly warming world.” (i)
A.I. comments… ‘Rapidly warming world’? I wish… it is the 29th of July 2022 down under in Northern NSW Australia and conditions are very cold. Penguins might like it, but I do not. And we need warmer weather to grow more quality food. Disease risks including Flu’s increase in freezing cold climate.
At 73 years old, I now suffer in Winter and so does my wife at 76 years. My days of running through winter in shorts and short sleeve T shirt as a ‘Heavy Vehicle’ Truck Driver in the early 1970’s in my fit 20’s years of age are over. The Penguins can outperform me in endurance in winter no problem.
“On land, penguins can appear a bit ridiculous, with their awkward waddle and seemingly useless wings. But underwater, their bodies are transformed into hydrodynamic torpedoes that would make any fleeing fish wish it could fly.” (i)
A.I. comments… I don’t feel that their ‘awkward waddle’ looks ridiculous, they fascinate me and how they cope and transform with amazing survival skills in winter.
Back in 2019, my left foot became twisted by cancer and although I am now in remission, I became crippled and in February 2021 had a bad fall, fractured my hip and became forced to use a ‘Walker’ for life. I can only walk a few feet without my ‘Walker’ and to avoid falling backwards, I have to waddle like a duck, stretching my hands/arms out behind my back to keep my balance. Now that walking by me in public looks ridiculous and funny, but that is my life now unto death.
“Penguins had already lost their ability to fly 60 million years ago, before the formation of the polar ice sheets, in favour of wing-propelled diving.” (i)
“The fossils and genomic data suggest the unique features that enable penguins aquatic lifestyles emerged early in their existence as a group, with rates of evolutionary change generally trending downwards over time.” (i)
A.I. comments… For those uneducated about Penguin prehistory evolution, like I am, now just learning more about penguins prehistory than what I currently know about current Penguin nature… The word ‘Genomic’ an adjective means an interdisciplinary field of biology focusing on the structure, function, evolution. Mapping, and editing of genomes. A genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA, including all of its genes. This definition is not my words, it is with compliments from Internet Dictionary information.
It is a branch of biotechnology concerned with applying the techniques of genetics and molecular biology to the genetic mapping and DNA sequencing of sets of genes or the complete genomes of selected organisms, with organizing the results in databases, and with applications of the data (as in medicine or biology).
Genomic relates to the haploid set of chromosomes in a gamete or microorganism, or the complete set of genes in a cell or organism.
Haploid adjective means (of a cell or nucleus) having a single set of unpaired chromosomes.
Gametes are an organism’s reproductive cells. They are also referred to as sex cells. Female gametes are called ova or egg cells, and Male gametes are called sperm. Gametes are haploid cells, and each cell carries only one copy of each chromosome.
Thank you, Internet, for your courtesy of passing forward this essential information.
No one can be a highly skilled specialist in every subject, but we can learn overview to increase our insight understanding.
“The scientists think penguins originated on a Gondwanan micro-continent called Zealandia, which is now mostly submerged under the ocean.” (i)
A.I. comments… As you can see in overview that ‘Climate Change’ and ‘Earth Movements’ are forever changing climate and environment, over the last three billion years and we have thousands of ‘Climate Change’ Activists that naively believe they can control ‘Climate Change’ by managing reduction of CO2. These stupid inferior thinking people are harming peoples survival and destroying local economies by overspending on renewable energy tactics using ‘Green Murder’ methods and are not being held accountable for their acts of betrayal i.e., treason against the common people in societies around the globe. Stupid is as stupid does.
I am gradually dealing elsewhere in my collective writings on the need to become wiser and get rid of illogical ‘Green Climate Change Activism’.
I deliberately wandered briefly off track to table other significant realities that need more attention as I have written elsewhere. Now back to Penguins.
“The paper suggests the ancestors of modern penguins -Crown Penguins- emerged approximately 14 million years ago…” (i)
A.I. comments… The Internet at present is not posting information about ‘Crown Penguins’, hence, I shall explore this reference further down-the track to learn more about these ancestors of modern penguins. This treatise is a start.
Pre-History Penguin insight… Before New Zealand became what it is today.
Back on track…
“This particular period [14 million years ago] would coincide with a moment of global cooling named the middle Miocene climate transition. Living penguins, however, split into separate genetic groups within the last 3 million years.” (i)
Why We Humans Should Learn from Other Animals starting with Penguins & Koalas.
A.I. comments… During the last 3 million years, homo sapiens evolved moving to where we are today. We are the craziest creature of all mammals killing each other constantly since our concept of primitive civilization began. The cleverer we became in technology, the more our wars against each other increased.
Meanwhile, Penguins evolved and the only war that Penguins had to face was changes in environment, food supply and temperatures. They that ‘waddle’ lived safer than we that walked upright.
We homo sapiens have all the right opportunities but waste it in ‘Habit of War’ not just with other countries but also inside our society in street battles and home invasion motived by greed, sexual lust, lust for dominance over others and often simply lack of emotional intelligence or obsessed with vanity, we fight to oppress others because we don’t like each other’s ideas. We humans are the craziest of all mammal species. We are still thinking and behaving stupid with every newborn generation. Clearly, we never learn from history to avoid past mistakes. Now how stupid is that? Our Children’s education system needs major repair.
To succeed with our children, we adults must first repair our ‘Belief System’ thinking and to succeed we need ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ because every other ‘Belief System’ throughout history, Philosophical, Political and Religious has failed. Learn P.I. the smarter way.
“Penguins spread out across Zealandia before dispersing to South America and Antarctica multiple times, with later groups likely hitching a ride on the Antarctic Circumpolar Current.” (i)
“The scientists found that almost every penguin species experienced a period of physical isolation during the Last Glacial Period.” (i)
“Their contact with other penguins was limited during this time, as groups were forced to live in more fragmented areas of habitat further north, where they could still find food and shelter.” (i)
“As a result, the DNA pool of each group became narrower, pushing species further apart genetically.” (i)
A.I. comments… The Penguins each species lived dynamic and adjusted with the challenges of ‘Climate Change’ and ‘Environmental Changes’. They didn’t panic like humans, they simply adjusted to face tough challenges and focused on working calmly to survive, waddling when necessary and diving for food and location when essential. They simply met the challenge of life. Humans need to learn that common-sense skill.
“In the period of warming that followed, they moved back towards the poles, and some groups, now much more genetically distinct, crossed paths once more.” (i)
A.I. comments… The Penguins did not panic over ‘Climate Change’ like weak-minded humans do, they just calmly adjusted, waddled and swam towards their destiny. Humans need to learn from the strength of character of Penguins, who are as a survival species smarter than homo sapiens.
Clever Technology is not much good, if we through the ‘Habit of War’ kill each other with it.
“The way certain groups of penguins experienced these significant climate events offers insight into how they might cope with human-caused climate change.” (i)
A.I. comments… A constant lie tabled by idiots around the global is that global warming is caused by humans. A three billion year history of earth proves ‘Climate Change’ is its own variant master of change and animals, humans included, are not changing climate. The one thing humans are doing wrong is destroying too many trees and clearing too much land which is not growing anything. The best way to manage CO2 is to bring back more trees to save our planet. Earth needs CO2 for plants to survive and we need Oxygen to survive, given to us by Plants. Animals and Plants are companions to survive they must look after each other.
