Climate change deepens threat to Pacific island wildlife
............................ AFP | Jul 14, 2017, 10:32 AM IST

PARIS: Land mammals and reptiles in the Pacific islands facing extinction due to habitat loss, hunting and other threats could be decimated by climate change, a study published Thursday said.

Ocean-bound wildlife is particularly vulnerable to environmental pressures, especially endemic species living on only one or a handful of islands. Among other things, this remoteness makes migrating to another land mass nearly impossible.

Dozens of species -- especially birds -- have also been wiped out over the last century by invasive species and disease brought by human settlers.

For most Pacific island vertebrates -- animals with a backbone -- the current risk of extinction has been measured and catalogued in the Red List of threatened species, maintained by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

.......................... Skipped Some

One would result in global warming of about 4 C (7.2 F) by century's end, and the other roughly 3 C (5.4 F).

The question they asked for each species was simple: to what extent will a hotter world increase the danger of extinction?

"Projected increases in sea level rise and ... wave heights, together with more intense tropical cyclones, are likely to exacerbate these vulnerabilities and result in signficant habitat destruction," the researchers concluded.

Eighteen animals -- including Bulmer's fruit bat, half-a-dozen species of gecko, and several lizards -- faced a triple threat.

..........................Skipped To Ending.

The 196-nation Paris Agreement has set a goal of holding global warming to "well below" 2 C, a goal that many scientists say may be out of reach.........

Land mammals and reptiles in the Pacific islands facing extinction due to habitat loss, hunting and other threats.

So that must mean mankind is killing the animals off by driving massive
V-8's to the store for a pack of cigs.

Also noted is the new mantra of a 4-7 degree increase by the century's end. Up from 1-2 just last year. Somebodies model must be again wrong.

Sure a lot of driving big V-8's on these Islands jimbo
Why is it you can't see past your own opinions and try to understand t is effecting lives of so many species.. I do think your an [Intelligent personso why the mind block when it comes to C.C.?[/I]


Also noted is the new mantra of a 4-7 degree increase by the century's end. Up from 1-2 just last year. Somebodies model must be again wrong.
MIght be possible yet this doesn't push C,C, as it just suggest it might have an effect, So I will just ignore your thought on the study..

And I have one item about Spain when I finish with this and the last post I made today on C.C. I am sure you will have some remarks...

Hey why is it jimbo that you thank others for their posts giving you a chance to post yet never me. I thank any one who starts a decent thread? And I am not begging for a thanks just inquiring.



Gee you have left out a bit of this News Story haven't you?
