Climate Change and Food Diet - Climate Change and Food Diet: Study after study shows that the earth's climate is rapidly changing due to human activities. Overall the planet is getting hotter - February 2016 being the hottest month recorded. We are quickly getting too close to the 2 degree Celsius warming that scientists predict will lead to terrible changes across the planet. We have entered the Sixth Mass Extinction phase. Ecosystems, that we need to survive as we are, are being destroyed on land and in the water. We face a grave future of food and water shortages that will lead to civil strife, mass migration, maybe wars and mass famine.
