Globalwarming is an environmental issue that affects the Earth’s climate.Climate changes experienced in diverse parts of the world affect theincrease in food production. Environmental aspects such as anincrease in rainfall or rise of temperatures affect agriculture(Amin, Md, Junbiao, and Mingmei 898). For instance, flooding in someareas interferes with food production because the land available foragricultural activities is reduced. The paper discusses globalwarming as an environmental issue that influences food productions.
Foodproduction activities rely mostly on the climate. Various places areaffected either negatively or positively by the rise in carbondioxide and temperature. Crop yields increase if water availability,soil moisture, nutrient levels, and other aspects are maintained.Evidence has been established claiming that climate change hasdiverse effects on the amount of food produced worldwide (Amin, Md,Junbiao and Mingmei 899). Global warming leads to increase in heat onatmosphere, and other climate changes. Activities such asdeforestation and fossil fuel burning emit carbon dioxide to theenvironment. The high level of greenhouse gasses in the atmospherecauses a rise in temperature because heat is prevented from escapingfrom the earth. The productivity of animals and crops such as milkyields are likely to decline when temperatures rise. Drought-relatedconcerns are witnessed when temperatures increase and climate changesare witnessed. Food production in regions that relied on rainfall isaffected by climate change and other water supply techniques such asirrigation are instead implemented. Global warming leads to thevariation of seasons making it difficult to predict the appropriatetime to plant or harvest crops. Besides, the precipitations eventssuch as flooding affect the food production activities because theycause unexpected delays (Amin, Md, Junbiao, and Mingmei 901). Changesin climate may involve a decrease in arability in some areas. Theenvironmental issue causes the shift of food production temperaturesto attitudes, which lack nutrients, and other soil components foragriculture.
Globalfood production is exposed to many risks due to global warming.However, strategies can be deployed in the society to prevent globalwarming and influence an increase in food production. The techniquesmust focus on reducing the number of emissions that prevent heat fromescaping from the earth. The society can utilize and promoterenewable energy by transforming the available energy systems tothose that do not depend on fossil fuels. Recycling techniques canalso be implemented to ensure that less harm is subjected to theenvironment. As a result, the amount of greenhouse gasses in theatmosphere will be reduced, and unexpected climate changeseliminated. Moreover, the release of carbon into the atmosphere canbe regulated by setting a limit that polluters are permitted to emit(Amin, Md, Junbiao, and Mingmei 910). Policies can be set to manageand help minimize environmental pollution. Food production willincrease if the level of greenhouse gasses decreases because theclimate that favors agricultural activities will be created andmaintained. Furthermore, tropical deforestation and other activitiesthat contribute to global warming emission can be reduced to increasefood production.
In conclusion, food production can be boosted by addressing the issueof global warming. The adoption of clean energy options minimizes theamount of global warming emissions. Climate changes may not beexperienced if the greenhouse effect is given a global attention.Temperature rise and variations in rainfall seasons hinder mostagricultural activities. Global warming issue causes drought,diseases, and other environmental changes that hinder theproductivity of crops and animals. Agreements and policies need to bedeveloped and applied across the world to help solve the issue andinfluence increase in food production.
