If we fail to take dramatic action, global climate change threatens to
raise temperatures, melt glaciers, flood coastal areas, and increase
the frequency and violence of storms.
There's one other disaster on the horizon: the extinction of species
on massive scale. Climate change, combined with increasing habitat
fragmentation and spread of diseases, means that one-third of all
species are at
risk of extinction by 2100.
