Forget floods, droughts, sea-level rise and even the melting polar ice caps. Here’s a really compelling reason to worry about global warming. Spiders. Research has already suggested that there will be more of them – and they will grow bigger – as temperatures rise.

Gaia imagines they’d get similar results with cats, or low paid online churnalists…
