According to the report, the main cause for concern is CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and fossil fuel consumption. Man-made climate change has already contributed to rising levels and increasingly acidic oceans; if left unchecked, it has the potential to devastate the food supply and lead to further food insecurity and conflict. Wheat and maize production have already been affected by rising temperatures and heat waves.
Each year we spend billions of dollars subsidizing profits at large international corporations because they refuse to pay their workers a living wage. It is not fair that taxpayers are footing the bill because these companies’ full-time workers are paid poverty wages and require public assistance just to be able to afford their rent and feed their families.
