Many of the Earth's biomes are under rapid assault or non-repairable changes that could lead to their destruction.


As a result of the release of huge amounts of carbon gases being released into the atmosphere, the temperature of the earth is rising at a dangerous rate. This has the effect of raising land, air, and water temperatures and melting the polar ice caps.

This self-escalating trend is resulting in noticeable changes to every biome on earth. Warmer water is changing the habitats of marine animals, corals, jellyfish and fish causing unpleasant effects on species that can survive and those who cannot.

Forest fires have become more prominent and last longer. Storms and cyclones are more violent. Flooding is more common and deeper. These problems affect all life present in the biomes including humans.
