A new global temperature analysis says climate change could drive as many as one in six plant and

animal species to extinction. In a study, it was seen that the amount of species threatened with

extinction will accelerate with the rising temperature. We should know enough to see climate change as

a major threat to biodiversity and ecosystems.”

The Earth’s temperature has risen approximately 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit since the Industrial Revolution,

and climate researchers project the planet could warm by as much as 8 degrees Fahrenheit. The issue,

scientists warn, is climate change forces species to search for new, more suitable habitats, and not all

species will be able to find a new home. Climate change will effect certain types of animals differently.

“Endemic species with small ecological ranges and certain taxonomic groups like reptiles and amphibians

(are most at danger due to climate change), also expect to see increases in bird extinctions, large

animals like rhinos, orangutans and butterflies. In the oceans, I expect many of the coral reefs to be in

severe chaos with the Great Barrier Reef extinct by 2050.” All these are put into danger by other human

practices, such as hunting and deforestation.

In a study, it was found the number of species at risk of extinction rises sharply with a rise in

temperature. Urban predicts 7.9 percent of species will go extinct due to climate change. If the Earth were

to warm only 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, Urban expects approximately 5.2 percent of species would die off.

If the Earth were to warm 7.7 degrees Fahrenheit, 16 percent of species likely would go extinct.

“We are talking about a change in temperature by approximately 4.2 degrees Celsius. Yes, I think that is

more than possible,” Strychar said. “The problem with that temperature, though, is not only the impact on

the terrestrial systems but imagining what that will do if the waters of the world warm up.”

Urban also notes both humans and other ecosystems will be effected by higher extinction rates.

“Even species not threatened directly by extinction could experience substantial changes in abundances,

distributions and species interactions, which in turn could affect ecosystems and their services to

humans,” Urban said in his report. “Already, changes … are evident.”

On why people should be worried about the rate of extinctions,


“People say that’s really sad, but why & how does it affect me? There are many reasons we should care.
We are the species that are causing the loss of all these other species.”

But the most important reason was that by losing species humanity was losing what enabled us to have a
“good standard of living”
