If you were a nine-foot tall animal covered in dense fur – say, Bigfoot – you would probably seek cooler climes if temps began inching up. That’s the hypothesis one Queens College biologist posed to me last night – without, I should note, acknowledging that such an animal exists at all.
First, a bit of background on why I would have found myself in a bar in Manhattan’s Alphabet City talking about Sasquatch. The biologist in question – Mike Hickerson, who studies “biogeographic shifts, speciation, extinction and determinants of community assembly,” a.k.a. phylogeography – and I had just been to Bigfoot Night. Bigfoot Night, if you don't know, was the latest installment of Kevin Maher’s Sci Fi Screening Room. (In the interests of full disclosure, Bigfoot Night’s co-host was M. Sweeney Lawless, a friend.)

I just got off the phone with Erik Vance, a freelancer covering the Bigfoot press conference in Palo Alto, Calif., for us. We'll be posting his story as soon as we can this afternoon, but here are the highlights:
-- The three men claiming they had found Bigfoot -- Matthew Whitton, Rick Dyer, and veteran Bigfoot tracker Tom Biscardi of Searching for Bigfoot, Inc. -- brought no physical evidence of the creature.
-- There were a few photos on display, one of some sort of primate jaw, and one of some kind of creature walking through the woods.
-- They brought an e-mail printout from Curtis Nelson, the University of Minnesota biologist testing three samples of the animal's DNA. According to Nelson, two were human, and the other was a combination and human and possum. Was that what this animal was eating before it died?
