Climate change threatens food production, study says
About 90 per cent of humanity faces poorer harvests and smaller catches if fighting climate change doesn’t drastically ramp up, says research published Wednesday.
And while Canada may be one of the only countries where production of grain and fish could increase, Canadians shouldn’t feel smug, says study co-author William Cheung from the University of British Columbia.
“We are living in the same world. Everything is connected. Any country that thinks they would be able to isolate themselves from any problems or impacts in other countries is unrealistic,” Cheung said.
