How will climate change impact biodiversity?

    Climate change is expected to cause the extinction of 15–37% of a sample of 1,103 land plants and animals in a recent study by 2050. With these extinctions comes the loss of biodiversity. Many plants and animals simply cannot adapt quickly enough to our changing environment to maintain healthy populations. Many migrating animals will suffer from starvation due to changing cycles; ocean species could go extinct due to the increasing acidity of the oceans from higher CO2 levels. Many more examples exist. It is likely the oceans increasing acidity will completely destroy the oceans coral reefs due to coral bleaching. This alone takes one of the most diverse ecosystems out of existence.
