Various disrupt able systems distribute heat from the sun to certain areas, so the sun can give off the same amount of energy and we can have lots of variation on the planet, but I don't think that killing of species will alter climate.
It is bad, don't get me wrong. We've definitely damaged the Earth, fairly substantially, what with the ecological imbalance and the intense pollution in some areas...

no not really, Tairaa.
No more so than the moon.
& see ....... this is part of the prob.
Yes the sun is a stong force on the global weather, but that is why the ozone layer, is stronger.
(well was stronger)
as the ozone layer decays, more heat from the sun gets through to earth.
But its buy no means the only force out there.http://www.articlesextra.com/toba-super ... onesia.htm
There are so many things that effect climate change ........ warming & cooling are just one of thounds.
Now' werther the ice caps in the north/south pole melt due to the warming of the planet due to co2's or weather its part of a NORMAL pattern..............
It's does not matter as they are melting ............ end of story.
Now if the north & south poles melt, even if just one melts, it will cause a warning of the sea's.
warming of the seas will mean more dead marine species.
less marine species .............. = less food.
furthermore, the warming of the seas will see the trade winds change / move.
if the trade winds & weather patterns move ........... for example El nino & La nina.
So will the rain & the water.
Thus causing further warming of the climate.
RE: The Permian–Triassic extinction.
Permian extinction 90-95% of marine species became extinct in the Permian extinction.
Then there are all the poisions & toxins in the sea's E.G .......... co2 ( "ocean acidification" )
more co2 in water means less oxygen. ( not to mention less trees = less oxygen )
What does Co2 do to marine life you ask ............... ???
co2 in the ocean, .......... is no different to the co2 in soft drink, ( coca cola ) just think about what the Co2 in your SODA POP is doing to your teeth.
Now what do you think it is doing to the bones & shells & teeth of the marine animals .....???
((( sharks, turtles, crabs, fish, & plantain. )))
