Agriculture and Greenhouse Gases

Global warming will have an effect on agriculture worldwide, but the outcomes will not be consistent. There may be positive effects in some areas and negative ones in others. As global warming influences temperatures and precipitation, it will play an important role in what types and amounts of crops can be produced. This will have a crucial effect on the world's food supply—what can be grown, how much, and where. This chapter explores both the positive and negative effects of global warming on agriculture. It then illustrates how agriculture functions as a natural resource and how it can assist the environment in combating global warming by being used as a source of mitigation against greenhouse gases. Next, it focuses on issues of human adaptation, food supply, and what future impacts are expected as a result of continued global warming.
