Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Skeptical Inquirer on Positive Consequences of Global Warming

In the latest issue of the Skeptical Inquirer, there's a list of Ten Possible Positive Consequences of Global Warming (also discussed here). Item #3 sounds familiar:

3.) Inner city neighborhoods will finally have access to formerly exclusive beachfront property.
That might be because I came up with something similar to it several years ago:
The best-case scenario: I can move into a sea-side home in Patterson, NJ and swim in a nice warm ocean whenever I want.
I'm more than a bit annoyed at item #8:
8.) There will be an end of mundane, out-of-date species and the creation of new mind-blowing mutations.
Is the idea that since global warming is bad for the environment and radioactivity is bad for the environment, global warming will have the same effects as radioactivity?

This is likely to convince anybody who knows something about nuclear power but is undecided about global warming that AGW is simply another idiotic idea from Luddites trying to collapse civilization.
