What We Know Now24 February - 28 March 2020
The consequences of climate change and the prescient effects it causes to food production is of worldwide concern. What We Know Now seeks to convey how to produce such as fruit will be affected. Many farming areas are experiencing the effects of rising temperatures; fruits are drying out and spoiling before ripening. Other areas are being inundated by flooding events or rising sea levels, damaging the crops and exposing them to fungal diseases. It is predicted that if the average temperature increase is not limited to 2 degrees our food security could be under threat. The usual colours and taste of fruit may then only resign in our memory.
‘What We Know Now’ is a chapter heading (used with permission) from the novel ‘Things We Didn’t See Coming’ by author Steven Amsterdam.
