With Climate Change being an issue globally, there will have to be an increasing demand in international trade to provide enough food for everyone. There is current droughts in some areas, while floods in others. It’s harming not only one part, but it’s harming us all. As a more developed country, we must come contribute to help those in danger. We can no long deny that this is not an issue in our reality today.

Climate Change began in the 1800’s according to a climate organization. This issue was viewed first in Ice cores drawn from Greenland, Antarctica, and tropical mountain glaciers that showed that the Earth’s climate responds to changes in greenhouse gas levels. We started to look more in depth into greenhouse gases and all the negative risks it brung upon our environment. It started to seem as though the main cause was all based from the human expansion of the “greenhouse effect”. We as the humans living on this earth, have been causing harm to this planet.

This all being done by us, the methods in which we are doing things now are currently damaging the earth we live in. We are damaging an important factor, which is our food source. Causing a win or lose situation for people all around the world who need food access. We are now trying to come to terms and agreement, we need all regions to be provided with. A senior, Caroline Alzamora even expressed that “Climate change affects food because when there is a big heat it can spoil, making food go bad which damages our food supply”. Demonstrating that we as people our conscious of Climate change already, but we need to implement and take steps towards bettering. Like president Obama once said “Climate change is no longer some far-off problem; it is happening here, it is happening now”.
