Both farming and climate change are said to have a symbiotic relationship whereby they both stand to benefit from each when favorable conditions exist.
Sadly, the favorable conditions have ceased to exist. Over the years, the world’s population has grown expansively and this has put pressure on mother nature to provide more and more on her part. The effect of this strain between the needs of the mass population and what mother nature is able to comfortably provide has resulted in bigger problems namely climate change.
Today, newer methods of farming are being employed and some of these methods are not particularly friendly to the environment and have ended up depleting the ozone layer over the many years they have been in use. Since farming methods affect the climate patterns, the result of a depleted ozone layer is unpredictable weather patterns which in the recent past has led to droughts and floods of inexplicable proportions.
It is now more than ever that we should begin to learn from what mother nature is trying to tell us. It is never too late to change our farming methods for our sake as well as for the generations to come.
