What would a drier climate mean for our agriculture industry?



  1. 0 Votes

    Agriculture will likely face increasing stress from the decline in runoff and drought, as well as increasing air temperatures, and the probable rise in agricultural pests and weeds expected in a warmer climate. Climate change will bring about a drying climate in coming years which will severely affect agriculture no matter how quickly climate change policy is implemented. In Australia, for instance, current estimates expect climate change to cause a productivity loss in agriculture of about 9 per cent by 2050. Even when mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions starts to take effect, the climate will still continue to change.
