Climate change is threatening the world’s food supply, according to a UN panel.
We’ve seen report after report warning us of the dangers of climate change, and that it’s happening right now.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has put the minds of more than 100 scientists together.
What they’re saying is alarming: Not only are rising temperatures threatening the planet – but so are our eating habits.
The way food is farmed is drastically degrading the Earth’s land, and scientists predict that’s making global warming worse, and will lead to food shortages.
So, how will governments respond to this warning?
