Why is global warming damaging lizard populations so much?

    The theory behind this statement is that lizards are seeking shade and shelter due to increasing day time temperatures.  If lizards are forced to take cover and immobilized, they are not hunting, drinking, or reproducing.  Lizards are cold blooded animals, thus cannot regulate their body temperature and must seek shelter when the day becomes too hot.  In essence, global warming is starving lizards.  Extinction of certain species of lizards in previously abundant regions has already taken place in many areas of Mexico and Europe.  It is predicted that already 6% of lizard species will become extinct due to the amount of green house gas in our atmosphere, it is up to us now to limit that number to 6%, that is irreversible, however it is attainable to change our ways now and eliminate further destruction of species.
