➔ Richness of life in the world’s ecosystems is currently in full decline as human activities from toxic pollution to deforestation and destruction of natural habitats for agricultural land persist

➔ Climate change forces biological zones to face weather conditions that are unsuitable for their plant, animal, insect, and other species, hastening decline and extinction

➔ Biodiversity loss has significant market value and on a large scale will slow the world’s economic growth

➔ Limiting non-climate dangers to biodiversity, such as deforestation, will be the basis of an effective response to the impact of climate change
