Severe Weather May Be Responsible for the Global Decline of Agriculture
Over the past few months shifting weather patterns have been sweeping the globe, including floods that have ransacked farms in the midwest United States, causing many crops to be lost. Al Jazeera states on March 31st, The Food and Agriculture Organization warned of “potentially catastrophic” impacts on food production form slow-onset climate changes that are expected to increasingly hit the developing world:
"The farm is a very small proportion of the economy in the US and other developed countries, but it has a disproportionate impact on global change," Professor Bomford, who has a Master’s of Pest Management and a PhD in Plant and Soil Sciences, told Al Jazeera. "Clearing land for farming releases carbon into the atmosphere and that contributes to climate change. Then by farming it, using cultivation causes soil to be lost in wind and erosion, and that topsoil took thousands of years to form. One extreme weather event can cause us to lose thousands of years of soil."
According to William Ryerson, founder and president of the Population Media Center and president of the Population Institute, “The world’s farmers are witnessing signs of a declining response curve, where the use of additional fertilizer yields little additional food product.” Last month, scientists from the University of Michigan forecasted a record Gulf of Mexico dead zone, roughly the size of the US state of New Hampshire, due in large part to the flooding of the Mississippi River. Ryerson warns of these trends causing massive worldwide food shortages in the future.
