WASHINGTON (CIRCA via MOBIUS.LAB) — Scientists around the world are studying the effects of climate change on the ratio of male to female newborns.

In Japan, scientists have published a study analyzing the decrease of males to females born nine months after devastating earthquakes. Extreme stress from environmental events was to blame. The study also noted the shift in genders normalized months after these catastrophic events.

Other studies indicate fewer boys were born in Scandinavia between 1878 and 1914 in colder years, while warmer climates noticed a rise in male offspring, suggesting extreme weather is shaping natural selection in utero.

Mild changes in temperature did not impact gender rates in newborns.

Humans survived the Ice Age; hopefully, the species will survive as temperatures rise.
