According to a research study nearly 50% of the world’s population is going to face rigorous food shortages by the end of this century. It is because the increasing temperatures cut down the growing season time in the tropics and subtropics that raise the possibility and risk of drought, and decrease the harvests of basic food crops such as rice and maize up to 20 percent to 40 percent.
Global warming is anticipated to influence agriculture in each part of the earth but it will have mainly unpleasant impact in the tropics and subtropics, where right now also the crops are less capable to become accustomed to climate change and they are already facing food shortages because of fast population growth.
Scientists at Stanford University and the University of Washington, who exertion on the study, discovered that by 2100 there is a 90 percent possibility that the regions that are facing coolest temperatures in the tropics during the rising season will be facing the temperatures upper than the hottest temperatures recorded in those regions through 2006. Even more temperate parts of the world can be expecting to observe formerly record-high temperatures become the average.
World Population Growing:
As the world population is predictable to be twice by the end of the century, the require for food will also become maximum significant as growing temperatures force nations to retool their advance approach to agriculture, produce latest crops that can endure in changing climatic surroundings, and build up further plan to make certain an adequate food supply for their people to meet the food requirements of constantly growing population.
According to director of food security and the environment at Stanford, “All of that could take decades”. Meanwhile, when the local supplies of a specific region start to run dry, people will have minimum places from where they can import and meet the food requirements of their people.
David Battisti, the scientist University of Washington who guide the study understood that, “When all the signs point in the same direction, and in this case it’s a bad direction, you appealing much know what’s going to take place, You’re discussing about hundreds of millions of supplementary people looking for food because they won’t be able to discover it where they find it now”.
