Abstract

Climate change is often associated with the melting of polar ice caps or the potential extinction of certain species. However, its consequences are much more extensive and ominous than commonly understood. One of the critical implications of climate change is its detrimental effect on food production and supply, posing a significant threat to global food security. As global temperatures rise and weather patterns shift, crop yields and productivity are increasingly compromised. This situation is exacerbated by the heightened likelihood and severity of adverse climate events and natural disasters. Furthermore, air pollution contributes to the decline in crop yields, particularly affecting staple foods like rice, soybeans, and wheat. Additionally, changing weather patterns intensify water scarcity, reduce livestock productivity, and impede food access and distribution. While short-term solutions can alleviate some of the pressure, a sustained global commitment is imperative to mitigate the effect of climate change on our food safety in the long run.
