Environment Pollution & Climate Change in Agriculture Science
Climate change and agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a global scale. Climate change affects agriculture in a number of ways, including through changes in average temperatures, rainfall, and climate extremes (e.g., heat waves); changes in pests and diseases; changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide and ground-level ozone concentrations; changes in the nutritional quality of some foods;and changes in sea level. Climate change is already affecting agriculture, with effects unevenly distributed across the world.[3] Future climate change will likely negatively affect crop production in low latitude countries, while effects in northern latitudes may be positive or negative.[3] Climate change will probably increase the risk of food insecurity for some vulnerable groups, such as the poor.[4] Animal agriculture is also responsible for CO2 greenhouse gas production and a percentage of the world's methane, and future land infertility, and the displacement of local species.
