Vanishing Veggies by City-Tech Blogger Mariano Huaman

This winter season climate changes have been affecting vegetable crop production in some countries in Europe. According to Feargus O’Sullivan, extreme weather has caused a vegetable shortage in Britain. Icy and rainy weather is causing floods that are ruining the Mediterranean vegetable crops supplying the British market. Spain is another country affected by climate change. Extreme weather is affecting the production of vegetables in the country. These factors are increasing the price of Spanish imports to all the countries in Europe. The U.K. is affected because their selection of vegetables and fruits are largely imported from other countries; Spain being the supplier of more than half of the vegetables in the U.K. Food campaigners in the U.K are recommending that people change their expectations about food. According to Kierra Box, “Rather than continuing to try to force production of unseasonable foods grown in the wrong climate at the wrong time of the year, we need to become more realistic. We can’t go into meltdown if salad isn’t available in the shops all winter”.

This article is very important to analyze because the United States also depends on many countries by importing vegetables and fruits. If countries are affected by climate change, the United States will also face a decrease in supply products. This will lead to a shortage of food in grocery stores around the whole country.
