An invasion of mysterious worms has created havoc in China, causing herdsmen and livestock to flee the grasslands in the Xinjiang region. Like lawnmowers the peculiar invertebrates leave nothing but barren soil in their wake.
An invasion of unidentified worms has forced 50 herdsmen and their families from their grassland homes, taking 20,000 head of livestock with them, in northwest China's Xinjiang region, state news agency Xinhua said Friday."

Why is EVERYTHING attributed to "global warming"? I wouldn't say EVERYTHING. But especially nature. Its a fact that it causes animals to move. OR maybe those are just some really hungry friggin worms

Not armaggedon just global warming and the weird things that will come with it That is really the closest explanation to it. The sun is pretty hot and when the globe of the sun gets hotter, we get hotter. That's the globe that is warming.
