Reporter Snookered by Warmists?

WUWT: Fish carried up a mountain on backs of llamas to escape global warming
The endangered vendace, that has been in Britain since the Ice Age, is in danger of dying out as lakes and rivers warm up because of man made global warming.
.....
Lord Chris Smith, Chairman of the Environment Agency, said British species have to be protected from climate change.

"In addition to the anticipated warming of lakes and rivers, we may also see an increase in the occurrence of extreme weather events such as floods, droughts and heatwaves.

"All of these could have an impact on much of the native wildlife in England, especially aquatic species such as the rare and specialised vendace, so we are taking action now to conserve the existing populations."
Emph mine.

Now comes the determination: Is the reporter just stupid/incompetent or a liar.

Her own readers took her to school in the comments, here
If you notice, her readers are better at research vetting the facts than she is.
And what will she write if the colony fails because water temp is too low?

I'll go easy on her: She is probably one of those who labored away in J-school 'to make a difference'
- so she is just an idiot, trusting in 'EXPERTS'. Experts at getting funding for their organizations.
