Climate Change, Animals & Agriculture by City Tech Leonardo Castillo

Animal Agriculture is a double-edged sword and raises many issues relating to climate change. Meat is a food staple around the world, but poultry and livestock waste causes emissions of methane gases, one of the leading contributors to Climate Change. But there are other problems with meat production and there is a trend of declining meat quality from animals raised for agriculture, even though the care and feeding procedures are designed and standardized to get the best results, the signs of a variety of health issues have been recorded by their producers in the last few years. That the temperature on average has risen one degree because of Climate Change is the source of many problems directly linked to heat stress, which animals suffer from. A decline in fertility and reproduction along with respiratory diseases are just some of the many issues that will continue to threaten poultry and livestock quality and quantity.

The truth is, we are not far from having a general food crisis. It is not a secret that Climate Change is also affecting the crops and in some cases even food distribution.  We need to start promoting the implementation of more sustainable ways of food production such as Fresh Sea farms among others.

I also insist on an increase in educating and informing people and policy makers of these Climate Change related issues, issues that threaten all forms of life as we know it.
