A new study has determined that climate change will lead to the extinction of the world of plants and animals as well as the extinction and mass extinction of humans.
In a study published this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers from the University of Washington found that climate changes will have an even greater impact on the oceans and the ecosystems they support than previously thought.
The researchers used computer models that simulated how a global climate shift would affect the planet, including sea levels, ocean currents, and ocean chemistry.
They found that the change would likely lead to major changes to the ocean, the ecosystem and the human population.
While climate change is causing extreme weather events across the globe, the study found that a change in ocean chemistry and chemistry in the oceans could lead to mass extinctions.
The researchers say this change could be a factor that leads to mass extinction events in the future, or even a direct result of climate change.
The study found climate change could also lead to massive changes to water resources and water bodies that could lead directly to mass ocean die-offs, and possibly mass extirpations.
The impact of climate on marine life is complex and unpredictable.
A recent study in the Proceedings of National Academy, which looked at the effects of climate changes on marine ecosystems, found that some species were already experiencing significant declines.
In fact, some species are already experiencing a decline of at least 20 percent in their populations due to climate change, according to the study.
The effects of ocean acidification are already being felt by many species, and climate change can exacerbate this impact.
In addition to being an environmental threat, acidification is a threat to coral reefs, a key habitat for marine life.
Researchers from the Center for Climate, Energy and the Environment at the University at Albany, which co-authored the study, say that the impact of acidification on coral reefs and other marine life has not been fully understood.
They say that ocean acidity and its impacts on marine organisms have yet to be fully understood, but that scientists need to focus on the potential effects of changing ocean chemistry to help guide policy, development, and management.
The Center for Ocean Sciences at the Cornell University said the study is important because it is the first comprehensive review of the impacts of climate in the marine ecosystem.
“This study shows that climate-related impacts to marine ecosystems can be far-reaching, but are not understood fully,” the Cornell researchers said in a statement.
“Understanding the complex interactions between ocean acidities and the environment is critical to designing and implementing climate-controlled marine resource management strategies to minimize the negative impacts of ocean warming,” they added.
