This is a photograph of a cotton farm that’s flooded. Unfortunately, this is just one farm out of hundreds of thousands that are also succumbing to the negative effects of global warming. Because humans destroy everything on earth, farms are one of them. This will have a domino effect on food products and crops in the coming decades. We may not notice the effects until it’s too late. This is all because we’re doing things like burning fossil fuels and chopping down forests. ADF says, “Earth has already warmed by about 1 degree Celsius, or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit, since the 19th century, before the industry started to boom. While we experience the effects, we’re on our way toward 1.5 degrees C (2.7 F) by as early as 2030.”
While one degree doesn’t seem like that much, it is. In a warmer world, a half-degree Celsius change causes more evaporation. In turn, this causes more water in the atmosphere, which puts not only the Earth’s health at risk but ours, too. ADF also states, “the increased evaporation and additional moisture to the atmosphere have led to 30% more intense rain during heavy downpours in that part of the U.S.” This will lead to more hurricanes and floods.” If we don’t do something about it now, it’s going to be too late (EDF).
