Global warming to kill 72% of bird species?

Posted on Friday, November 17 2006 @ 07:27:27 CET by


The WWF released a report this week in which it claims 72 percent of all birds in some areas maybe driven into extinction if we don't further restrict our exhaust of greenhouse gases.
"Robust evidence demonstrates that climate change is affecting birds' behaviour -- with some migratory birds even failing to migrate at all."

In the future, it said, unchecked warming could put large numbers of species at risk, with estimates of extinction rates as high as 72 per cent, "depending on the region, climate scenario and potential for birds to shift to new habitats".

It said the "more extreme scenarios" of extinctions could be prevented if tough climate protection targets were enforced and greenhouse gas emissions cut to keep global warming increases to less than 2 degrees C (1.6 F) above pre-industrial levels.
