Each species has a role in planet, and as they dwindle or become extinct, this points to a much larger problem. For example, the decline of the bee population has a direct effect on both the environment and food production, with their instinctual role of pollination. A major factor of saving the earth is to also protecting its inhabitants.

    The Arctic ice cap melting does not effect the sea level, since that ice is already floating in the water. Put a few ice cubes in a glass of water and let them melt, and you’ll see what I’m saying. Only continental ice melting affects the sea level (i.e. Antarctica, glaciers). The problem with the Arctic ice cap melting is disruption of the deep water sea currents which in turn would effect weather systems. For example, the Golf stream could stop, massively degrading the climate of Europe.
