Global Warming Affects Biodiversity

According to researchers at the University of York, rising temperatures could wipe out more than half of the earth's species in the next few centuries. The study analyzed fossil records and temperature changes over 500 million years, and found that when more than 50 percent of species disappeared at different times in history, the extinction occurred during periods of high temperatures. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts that average global temperatures are likely to rise between 1.8 and 4 degrees Celsius (3.2 and 7.2 Fahrenheit) by the end of the century, in part as result of greenhouse gas emissions.

Animal agriculture contributes to approximately 18% of global warming emissions, which accounts for more green house gases than all vehicles produce. The transition to a plant-base diet can help reduce the emission of global warming gases and hopefully help decrease the rate of rising temperatures.
