Canada and other countries in the Arctic are expected to warm more than any other on Earth during the coming decades as a result of anthropogenic climate change. A series of computer model predictions published by Environment and Climate Change Canada anticipate that both temperature and precipitation will be considerably different than today.
Growers have feared 45-50 per cent decline in mango production due to global warming and poor field practices. However, the Mango Research Institute officials figured out 30pc crop loss due to global warming, change in climate, prolonged winter, late flowering, winds and hailstorms, which played a key role in destroying premature crop of mango.
A study carried out by the research group in Ecophysiology and Biotechnology of the Universitat Jaume I of Castellón (UJI), in Spain, working in partnership with scientists from France, Greece and the United Kingdom, has concluded the main crops in the Mediterranean basin, such as citrus fruits, vines and olive trees, will be affected by climate change, and that their production will be drastically reduced.
The Mexican state of Chiapas is the national center of rambutan production. Rambutan crops are concentrated in the localities of Metapa, Frontera, Tuxtla Chico, Kilometer 10 and the high zone that corresponds to Cacahoatan and Carillo Puerto. Extreme weather events caused by climate change have reduced the volume harvested this season by more than 30%.
Ecological changes are creeping upon us because of climate change, say many experts. Our food supply, so dependent on a narrow range of factors –including temperature, rain and changing ecosystems– is threatened as well. A big challenge for banana cultivation with warmer temperatures is the spread of pests and diseases.
Losses caused to India by extreme weather events more than doubled in the 10 years to 2017 from the previous decade (1998-2007), with the farm sector bearing the brunt, according to a new report published by Action on Climate Today (ACT), a UK-based initiative that works with South Asian governments to build resilience against climate change.
The costliest natural catastrophes occurred in the United States in 2018 with one of California’s devastating wildfires and Hurricane Michael topping the list, according to Munich Re. A report from Munich Re on last year’s natural disasters pointed to “clear indications” that man-made climate change is a factor in California’s wildfires.
An El Niño event is very likely under way, amping up extreme weather already made worse by climate change and increasing the odds that 2019 will be the hottest year in recorded human history, scientists warn. There is an 80 percent chance a full-fledged El Niño has already begun and will last until at least the end of February 2019, according to the Climate Prediction Center at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The National Climate Assessment (NCA) predicts agriculture will be one of the greatest casualties when it comes to climate change. “Any change in the climate poses a major challenge to agriculture through increased rates of crop failure, reduced livestock productivity and altered rates of pressure from pests, weeds and diseases,” the report states.
