Knowledge of impacts of future climate change varies greatly between taxonomic groups where changes in range are widely documented in all taxa in various study, with distributions of most shifting pole wards. Climate change is long-term changes in weather patterns that characterize the changes in climate around the world. It is projected to have significant impacts on conditions affecting fauna, including temperature, precipitation and glacial run off that reduces production of agriculture which adversely affects faunal diversity directly. Animal migrations are important to the healthy function of many ecosystems. An impact of climate change on migratory species is a challenge, particularly with endangered species, which are subject to many other pressures. The emerging risks associated with climate change are the outcomes of physical processes that caused by human activities. Climate change has the potential to cause immense biodiversity loss, affecting both individual species and their ecosystems that support economic growth and human well-being. It is difficult to predict the overall result of climate changes on animal and plant kingdom. This realization should bring moral responsibilities, including responsibilities to reflect upon and change energy policies that inflict harm on the vulnerable sections of humanity in the present as also future generations.
