The Endangered Species Coalition has identified in a report the “Ten Endangered Wildlife, Fish & Plants Impacted by Climate Change,” here.

As they note in describing the report

This year, our America’s Hottest Species report focuses on wildlife, fish, birds and plants on the U.S. list of threatened and endangered species that are particularly imperiled by global warming. The vast majority of these species were “listed” due to other causes. Only the polar bear and two corals have been listed as a result of the threat of global warming. However, scientists are increasingly seeing that climate change is like a bulldozer shoving species, already on the brink of extinction, perilously closer to the edge of existence.

Problems of species extinction exist regardless of how seriously one thinks we ought to take the threat of global climate change. It’s good this Coalition makes comments helping with this point.
