Nov 8, 2019

Nearly two-thirds of North America’s birds could be at risk of extinction due to climate change.

According to a report from the National Audubon Society, if the global temperature rise by 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit by the year 2100, 389 species of birds around the continent will be at risk for extinction. 

In Ohio, we could see as many as 19 species of birds disappear by 2080 if the warming climate continues to persist.

Today on All Sides, climate change and its impact on birds.
