Growing Season Changes and CO2

What is Growing Season Changes?Growing Season Changes is classified as an increase or decrease in agricutural growth due to a change in the average climate conditions. It is important to note that changes in the growing season can affect the growth of crops.

How does Carbon Dioxide affect Growing Season Change?CO2 emissions are constantly increasing in today's world. This causes our Earth to absorb more heat from the sun. An increase in temperature would bring pests and extreme events. However, some crops would actually grow faster because of warmer conditions. The negative results outweigh the positive results.

Influences on Humans and Societies- A warming climate would provide perfect conditions for pests to thrive. If pesticides are added to farms, then human health can be affected.- Higher temperatures can also bring floods and droughts. These extreme events can bring food shortages due to the amount of damage they cause.- Our society can also suffer economically because the inability to grow food would force us to buy food from other countries, which makes the price of the food rise. - Food shortages can also occur and this poses a threat to national security. Our daily food intake would have to be reduced because of the fact that less food can be grown.

The results of extreme weather events like floods. Many crops would not be harvested and be damaged by growing season changes

Warmer temperatures would provide conditions for pests to thrive. The chemicals used for combating the pests is not good for the environment and human consumption.

Overview Humans burn many tons of fossil fuels to provide energy for industries, transportation, and electricity. These Fossil Fuels emit Carbon Dioxide (CO2) when burned. CO2 is a greenhouse gas and contributes to global warming. This can affect the way that humans grow their food. The Growing Season is classified as the period of the year that provides exemplary conditions for plants to grow. Farmers use the growing season to plant their crops at the times that would produce the best yields.

    Well we all live in the United States so we are all used to winter spring summer and fall. If these seasons change we would all personally struggle because it doesnt take three seconds to adapt to changes in your environment. This also affects our plants which gives us H2O and most animals rely on plants for food :)

    Growing Season changes may affect the way a society functions because if the plants have pest, we will not be able to eat it. Prices will start to rise and maybe the society will downgrade in econemy.

    It would affect me by having to eat less because of the crops dying and stuff but i think growing season changes would be good in a way because people who are obese will get skinner/eat less so wouldnt that be a good thing?
