Researchers are now warning that waning phosphorous levels could devastate food production around the globe. A nonrenewable resource with no synthetic substitute, phosphorous is an essential nutrient and it’s disappearing faster than anyone realized.

Comments Off on We’ve lost a third of the world’s farmlands in the last 40 years

A new study found that the world has lost a third of its food-producing land in the last four decades. Erosion and pollution are two of the biggest reasons that we’re losing fertile soil , and it’s happening at a rate far faster than the natural processes that replace diminished soil. Researchers are taking this message to world leaders this week in Paris , in an effort to command environmental policies that call for agricultural practices that would slow the land loss.

Comments Off on Climate change poses a serious threat to global wheat crops

New studies reveal that increasing global temperatures are likely to put a damper on wheat crop yields. A six percent reduction in yields is expected for each 1.8 degree F (1 degree C) increase in temperature. Considering that current emissions levels could eventually lead to a global temperature increase of 9 degrees F (5 degrees C), this is very bad news.

Climate Change Blamed for Alarming Increases in Ocean Acidity

Comments Off on Climate Change Blamed for Alarming Increases in Ocean Acidity

The effects of climate change seems to know no bounds: new research shows carbon emissions have dramatically increased the acidity of our oceans to the point where our entire food web is at risk of collapsing. In a recent report to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), scientists said the ocean’s acidity level has gone up 26 percent in the past 200 years, since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution . According to Phys.org , that increase in acidity directly mirrors the proportion of carbon dioxide oceans have been absorbing ever since humans started burning massive amounts of fossil fuels for energy.
