    11. 11. How Global Warming can Affect Turtles <ul><li>As you all know global warming has been causing the earth to heat up. This is causing warmer temperatures. As I said before the temperature at which the baby turtle is born at helps determine their gender. If the weather continues to increase in temperatures, soon, only females will be born. That means there wont be any new baby turtles. It could possibly lead to the extinction of sea turtles. </li></ul>
