Excess Carbon Dioxide Will Only Hurt the Agricultural Industry
Carbon Dioxide emissions continue to increase as time passes by. The effects of climate change are already being felt in the US and other countries.
One of the major effects of this change in climate is the rise in temperature. As temperatures rise, the efficiency of agricultural and forestry operations drops.
Many crops have been used to a specific temperature range for millennia, making it very difficult for them to survive in such a drastic change like it is now.
While the direct effects of this change are felt by the producers, there are indirect effects that are felt by the consumers and the industry.
Carbon dioxide has also been found to reduce the nutritional value of plants as well.
Loss of land as well as production of food in a world only increasing in populations sparks some concern. Climate change must be dealt with if we are to save our coasts and agriculture.
