Two-Thirds of North American Birds Face Extinction Due to Climate Change
Two-Thirds of North American Birds Face Extinction Due to Climate Change. A new report says the situation will be dire if worldwide temperatures rise over 5.4 degrees by the end of the century. The analysis, 'Survival by Degrees: Bird Species on the Brink,' comes from the National Audubon Society. Our findings in this report are the fifth alarm in a five-alarm fire, Audubon CCO David O'Neill, via study. For their report, scientists at the bird conversation group studied just over 600 species in North America. Audubon scientists also used observational data from bird-watchers and enthusiasts across the continent. Climate change is said to be raising extinction chances for at least 389 of them. Drought and rising sea-levels have also impacted species. Birds are important indicator species because if an ecosystem is broken for birds, it is or soon will be for people, too, Audubon Senior Scientist Brooke Bateman, via study. This new study follows a similar study conducted by Audubon in 2014. It concluded that over 150 species can stave off the threat if carbon emissions are stabilized. . By stabilizing carbon emissions and holding warming to 2.7 degrees above pre-industrial levels, 76% of vulnerable species will be better off, and nearly 150 species would no longer be vulnerable to extinction from climate change, Audubon Society, via study
