In recent years scientists have noticed that the rate of climate change has been increasing. A number of theories exist as to how this has happened but all scientists agree that the impact of these changes could be far-reaching if we do not learn to manage our resources effectively.
Food: As the seasons change, many farmers will need to consider the crops that they plant. They might need to change to suit the changing conditions.
Health: Many of the world’s poorest people are at serious risk as climates change. There will be issues with food supply and increases in malnutrition. Extreme weather events such as drought, floods and storms will injure and kill more people.
Water: Although there might be more rain it will be less predictable for farming and crops.
Death: Death rates will increase. The UN estimate that over 300,000 people die each year already due to climate change. Diseases such as malaria and cholera will also be on the increase.
