Hotter climates are REAL. Right now I ran away from home to go to a place where there’s Air conditioning available. The heat is too much and it is suffocating honestly. But the question here today is, how does this Hotter climate pose a great risk to the storage of food. Let me explain.
Ways a Hotter Climate Poses a Risk to Global Food Storage
You know climate change is a multiplier on people that are undernourished and hungry. Some countries have a very high level of hunger like those in Africa. These people are highly vulnerable to climate change. A lot of them have a very low capacity to adapt when these issues come along.
Climate change affects the availability, stability, utilization, quality, access of food. This impacts several aspects of the feeding system.
Very hot weathers have disasters that always reduce the production of major food crops.
These hot weather disasters keep increasing and they reduce the yields of crops that are essential.
There are also very high levels of carbon mono oxide. This reduces the value nutritionally of crops.
The global food system here contributes to about one-third of the greenhouse gas emissions. About two-third of food here is wasted and lost from the farm to the table. These losses exacerbate climate change without actually improving the security of food or the nutrition of the people around.
Climate conflict and change merge their powers to destroy the lives of several people. There’s also an increased range of inequalities, which drives displacement and undermines sustainable development. Getting rid of undernutrition and hunger in a place that suffers from a hot climate needs a large-scale action.
Did you know that Climate Change threatens Food Production and Agriculture
Extreme events like floods and droughts, water scarcity, higher temperatures, and higher levels of carbon mono oxide concentrations available in the atmosphere have been affecting staple crops all across the world. Wheat and maize production has declined in recent years as a result of the events from the weather. There are also plant diseases and the general increase in the scarcity of water.
Looking at things from the agriculture And Food organization and then that of the United Nations, the unpredictable yield of important cereal crops in regions of the world like the Sahel Region suffers greatly from the hotter climate.
So what should be done
Have you heard of irrigation before?
See the governments of countries that suffer through hot climates have a lot of funds. They can power the entire farms and everywhere that needs a better climate using solar panels and then irrigate the whole place. Provide appropriate cooling systems in these farms so the plans would have no idea that everywhere is hot.
