(NewsTarget) Two stories announced across the various news media this week may signal the fact that the "end of the world" - at least as we know it - has come leaps and bounds closer. The first item begs the question: What have the Nendo Tube Nosed Fruit Bat, the Pink Headed Duck, the Hula Painted Frog, the Guam Flying Fox, and the Yangzte River Dolphin all got in common? Naturally you knew, they are some of almost eighty known species to have become extinct in the last 100 years.

Something that occurs, scientists say, whenever the global temperature increases for a prolonged period of time; that is to say 'global warming'. Such an event could lead to around half of all known species ceasing to exist over the next few hundred years!
