Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Rising temperatures threaten the survival of species which cannot adapt. 9% of arctic ice is melting per decade, destroying habitats for animals such as polar bears.Warmer sea temperatures threaten the survival of species like trout and salmon which thrive in cold waters. How Does Climate Change Affect Biodiversity? Global Sea levels have rose 3.2mm a year for the past 20 years. Rising sea levels can can cause flooding of low-lying land, wetlands, contamination of groundwater and soil, and loss of habitat for wildlife. 3.2mm of world trade is based on biological productivity, by British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) estimates 40% 90% of the worlds food comes from a mere 20 of 80,000 known edible plant species. Biodiversity allows for greater food security. Species native to Singapore such as the banded leaf monkey and cream-colored squirrel are heading towards extinction. 28% of the 3,196 recorded species in Singapore are already gone. A greater biodiversity allows for ecosystems and species to better adapt to changes in the environment. 9% 9% A greater biodiversity allows for more opportunities for medicinal research. 40% of all prescriptions are for medicines that originated from plants and animals. Why is this an urgent problem? What can Singapore do? According to the National Wildlife Federation, global warming has increased wildfire risk and resulting in longer fire seasons. Habitats are destroyed by wildfire, and it is more difficult for ecosystems to recover from larger fires. Name: Zoe Lim (20) Class: 5E Singapore can choose to reduce its carbon emissions. In the Paris Agreement of 12 December 2015, the Singapore government pledged to reduce Emissions Intensity by 36% from 2005 levels. Organizations can contribute by developing and using more energy-efficient technology. Organizations can make use of the Grant for Energy Efficient Technologies (Greet) scheme for aid in doing so. Individuals can help to reduce carbon emissions by adopting the following practices in their everyday lives:-choosing to use more energy efficient appliances-taking public transport rather than private transport-switch off appliance or devices when they are not in use
