The latest on a national crisis in wildlife as climate change threatens to drive more species from their natural habitats article A crisis in marine and tropical wildlife is emerging, with more than 40 species of threatened and endangered species and hundreds of species of fish and wildlife being killed or dying every year due to the effects of climate change, according to a new report.
As the world grapples with a global warming problem that will force the extinction of more than a third of all species by 2100, the effects are not confined to one region.
The report by the Center for Biological Diversity, a conservation group based in California, found that a growing number of marine and coastal areas are seeing mass declines in their populations and are at risk of being overwhelmed by warming waters, as a result of pollution, habitat loss and overfishing.
The species most affected by the effects were the large, hard-shelled fish that can be as big as a small boat and feed on marine life, the researchers said.
Many of the species in the U.S. and other nations are in decline because of pollution.
Some of the world’s largest polluters, such as China, are facing growing economic and social problems.
The Center for Wildlife Economics and Policy, a research center based in Texas, said the impacts of climate-induced pollution on marine and shore ecosystems could be even greater.
It said more than 100,000 species are being killed each year by pollution, including more than 4,500 species of birds and about 1,000 types of marine mammals.
The new report found that by 2060, about 40 percent of the U,S.
population will be affected by global warming and the threat of climate disruption, according the Center’s analysis of the data.
The researchers found that about 7,500 of the country’s 8,500 state and local governments are currently experiencing the effects from pollution.
More than 3,300 of the 5,000 largest U. S. cities were found to be affected, and the cities with the largest number of impacts include San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, New York and Washington.
The study, which is being released Monday, was conducted by researchers at the University of Washington and the University at Albany, and was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The results were based on the most recent estimates of the Center on the Environment and the Future, a nonprofit environmental organization that is working to improve global climate change efforts and protect the environment.
“It is alarming that our nation is seeing mass species loss due to climate change,” said Chris Armitage, the Center executive director.
“The effects of this mass loss are already impacting our coasts and ocean, and it’s a threat that could be magnified with the continuing pace of climate denial.”
The report comes as the Trump administration moves to roll back the Clean Power Plan, a 2015 rule that has helped reduce the number of coal-fired power plants.
Environmental groups have long said the rule was harmful to the environment and had a chilling effect on people’s economic choices.
