520    "Biodiversity is the sum total of all living organisms 
       inhabiting the earth. It refers to the variety and 
       variation in living organisms, their species, and their 
       habitats. Global warming has emerged as a great threat to 
       biodiversity. As the planet is warming up, plants and 
       animals are trying to adapt to their changing 
       environments. However, the pace of change is so fast that 
       some living organisms are not being able to cope up with 
       the challenges of nature. This is making some species 
       vulnerable to extinction. Not only rising temperatures but
       also changes in rainfall patterns, breeding seasons, as 
       well as the reducing interaction between animals and 
       plants have endangered many species. It is believed that 
       if global temperatures rise by over 3.5°C, up to 70 
       percent of the world's known species would go extinct."--
