"The Colbert Report's" Stephen Colbert, like many others on the right, is not entirely convinced of the very real dangers of climate change.
On Thursday night, however, Colbert got a bit a of a shock. Climate change will force half of our continent's species of birds (650 species) to find new homes -- which is very bad news for us. Jokes aside, this is a very serious matter, as birds are an important part of our ecosystem: They're pollinators, they disperse seeds, they keep insect populations in check, and so much more.
Colbert, for his part, isn't so worried about all of the birds, but he is shocked to find that the bald eagle, America's national bird, will be affected by climate change. The bird species stands to lose 75 percent of its habitat by 2080.
What is Colbert's solution? Nominate a new national bird, of course. Find out what he chose; watch below:
