Endangered Water and Food Supplies
Taking Action on Climate Change
Reading Level: 6
Interest Level: 5-8
This fact cannot be ignored: food shortages and climate change are linked. As Earth warms and drought or flooding occurs, farmers cannot grow crops and animals die. If disease occurs, it can wipe out huge amounts of food supplies if farmers have not used diverse seeds or a variety of livestock breeds. This book examines the complexity of a warming climate and its relationship to food and water. By showing examples of technological solutions, like metal "trees" that collect carbon and cloud seeding that creates rain, this book both gives readers hope and inspires them to make their own difference for our global community.
