Rapid Insect Decline Caused By Climate Change

Insects are vital to most ecosystems, and scientists have warned that any kind of severe loss of these insects would cause major damage and disruption to life on earth. Even with all the carbon cuts already pledged by nations so far, climate change would make almost half of insect habitat unsuitable by the end of the century, according to recent research done by the University of East Anglia. How can this loss be prevented? What is the risk we are taking if no change made? We spoke to Dr Duncan Mackay from Flinders University to answer our questions.
