Climate Change

The strong consensus of scientists is that global warming will have major, generally negative impacts on cropland productivity and will alter global patterns of food production. More severe flooding, extreme heat, drought and changing rainfall patterns are just a few of the ways that a warmer planet will adversely affect yields  in many parts of the world, including the United States. A drop in usable cropland is also occurring in some coastal regions due to salt water intrusion and sea level rise.
