Carbon footprint

The Earth’s climate has been changing since the 19th century with NASA estimating a global temperature increase of 2.05 degrees Fahrenheit (1.14 degrees Celsius). This change is largely driven by increased anthropogenic greenhouse emissions. In addition to records of temperature changes, there are other indicators of change: many glaciers and ice sheets have decreased in size, releasing stored water and thus causing rising sea levels. Changes in temperature, atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), and the frequency and intensity of extreme weather could have significant impacts on crop yields as agriculture is highly dependent on climate variability. While higher temperatures can increase crop yields in some places, it
could make it more difficult to grow crops in other and may increase the prevalence of parasites and diseases that affect livestock.
