ABSTRACT
The article cogitates on issues related to the impact of global warming on the diversity of species. In terms of climate change, indications show that average global temperature are on the rise. Until recently, pollution was just one suspected culprit behind the demise of coral reefs. But coral bleaching, the principle symptom of sick reef syndrome, is now almost certain to be a result of warming oceans. Seen cynically, adaptation and extinction are two sides of the same coin as far as the mechanism of evolution is concerned, and Earth's history is a chronicle of climate change accompanied by extinctions.
