Animals Threatened by Climate Change
NASA scientists announced recently that 2018 was the 4th hottest year on Earth, exceeded only by 2017, 2016, and 2015. After 140 years of record-keeping, 18 out of 19 of Earth’s warmest years have occurred since 2001!
For humans, this means more destructive hurricanes, floods, forest fires, droughts, and bone-chilling Arctic blasts resulting in thousands of deaths, billions in property destruction, and massive interruptions of life as we know it.
By 2100, an estimated 50% of all the world’s species could go extinct because of climate change. We can’t let that happen. Earth Day Network listed 10 animals threatened with extinction because of climate change.
