Interesting Fact # 1102 - Global Warming

According to a report in Science journal, climate change is causing a breed of wild sheep in Scotland to shrink.

(Classic evolutionary theory would predict that wild sheep gradually get bigger, as the stronger, larger animals survive into adulthood and reproduce, but milder winters caused by global warming, have helped smaller sheep survive, and breed, causing a decrease in size of the overall population. A bit like washing a jumper in a hot wash.)
