Like living organisms, ecosystems have the ability to adapt when something is different. But there is a difference when we talk about climate change. First of all the climate change process is happening rapidly, in a short period of time so we don’t give nature’s adaption speed the nessecary time to work. Also, human activities and pollution have made ecosystems vulnerable. The problem is that we have changed ecosystems. Even if we just polluted atmosphere and let the ecosystems virgin, it would be still impossible for them to adapt. Let alone now that “ecosystems” have no trees, animals, and their basic elements.
