We all know that drought and famine, among other things, are part of the economic disasters that are predicted to happen due to a changing climate. There is a chance for it to affect other things, too.
The future of hunting and fishing may be changing right along with the climate. As the Earth warms, animals may be on the move.
“As temperatures rise across the habitat, animals migrate to stay cool either farther north or higher in elevation," said Mark Fischetti, Scientific American editor. "The more temperatures rise the farther and higher animals go and there's little we can do to stop that. It's survival instinct.”
