Extinction Due to Climate Change
Global climate change will prompt
widespread extinction within decades, according to an international group of 19 scientists. The group studied more than 1,000 species representing roughly 20% of the Earth’s terrestrial surface and found that, if current warming trends continue, 15–37% of them will be “committed to extinction” by 2050. The report, “Extinction Risk from Climate Change,” was published in the journal
Nature on January 8, 2004.
