InClimate 783; Extinctions: Who Is Next?

Temperature, ocean acidity and other phenomenon linked to climate changes can drive extinctions. The Golden Toad, a native of Costa Rica, is thought to be among the first species to go extinct due to climate change. The rufa red knot that migrates from Tierra del Fuego to Canada is the first bird to be designated a threatened species due to the impact of climate change. Some plant species and agricultural zones are also on the move. Worst case scenario, climate change threatens with the sixth mass extinction. Who is next? What about the human species?
