    Some of the marine most sensitive to a warming climate are the various coral species that make up the world’s tropical coral reefs.  Most of these corals are extremely sensitive to even a small change in water temperatures, and scientists warn that the climate-warming gases already released into the atmosphere are already enough to have severe impacts on reefs all around the world.  Only it there are drastic, and almost immediate reductions in carbon emissions worldwide do coral reefs stand any chance at all of surviving into the future in anything like their current state.  Coral reefs of course support one of the most diverse marine ecosystems on the planet, and a die-off of coral reefs would probably lead to the extinction of countless animals which depend on reefs for food and shelter, too.
