With global warming, will Sasquatch become extinct?

As I came across an interesting (understatement to be sure) link involving a video shot on January 26th, 2006 near the northern Minnesota city of Ely, it raised questions to be sure.

The video I am speaking of was of a creature some call Sasquatch or Bigfoot. The blog from which the debate originates from seems to deal with nature and the oddities contained there. After watching the video and its closeup counterpart, it seems rather shady to me that someone was just cruising along U.S. Highway 169 at 4:30 AM and heard the creature's screams from inside their car with the windows likely rolled up. (Who in the hell would drive at that time in the morning in a northern Minnesota winter with their window even cracked?) While i definitely think it is fake after watching it just once more, it brings about my second and more serious question.

If, in reality, Sasquatch does exist, will it survive through global warming? The simple fact is that the Arctic is changing at an alarming pace. It could be written off as just the natural changing of the planets climate but the rate at which the changes are happening is disturbing. This is the real deal. We, as humans, have polluted our planet beyond all imagination and now those who depend most on nature are those being punished and facing the most dramatic changes.

And if you don't care about the Inuit people, think about poor Sasquatch facing extinction.
