Climate Change Will Affect One-Third Of Animal Species!

Climate Change

Scientists are predicting that one-third of land animals could suffer dramatic losses over the course of the century due to one awful thing…

CLIMATE CHANGE!

Even worse is that over half of all plants could be hit just as hard as their environments become unsuitable for their disposition.

As different ecosystems begin to collapse, there will be major consequences to us humans.

Agriculture, tourism, clean water, and air quality could all begin to suffer.

The lead scientist from University of East Anglia's school of environmental science said:

"While there has been much research on the effect of climate change on rare and endangered species, little has been known about how an increase in global temperature will affect more common species. This broader issue of potential range loss in widespread species is a serious concern as even small declines in these species can significantly disrupt ecosystems. Our research predicts that climate change will greatly reduce the diversity of even very common species found in most parts of the world. This loss of global-scale biodiversity would significantly impoverish the biosphere and the ecosystem services it provides."

So basically, we all need to stop blasting out greenhouse gasses!

Quick! Everyone go buy a Prius! LOLz!

But seriously, we really do need to start taking better care of our planet if we want one to be around for our grandkids.
