When the planet gets hot, the plants start to rot." - Peter

Agriculture is an important sector of the U.S. economy. The crops, livestock, and seafood produced in the United States contribute more than $300 billion to the economy each year. When food-service and other agriculture-related industries are included, the agricultural and food sectors contribute more than $750 billion a year!
Since the plants depend on CO2 and climate and now CO2 and climate change are increasing, plants are dieing.
In the long run, with the affect of climate change, agriculture will be affected by:
-Productivity: Productivity in terms of quantity and quality are affected with climate change.
-Agriculture Practices: Yup.
Remember, animals are agriculture to! Not just animals and crops, but fish too!
Americans consume more than 36 metric tons of meat per year! Now without animals, all of us may have to be vegetarians in the next 100 years!
According to the article “Climate Impacts On Agriculture”, here’s what they say about the livestock:
“Increases in carbon dioxide (CO2) may increase the productivity of pastures, but may also decrease their quality. Increases in atmospheric CO2 can increase the productivity of plants on which livestock feed.”
As you can see, nobody will want to buy the animal meat anymore and now many companies will go out of business.
In the past 50 years, fish have moved a insane 119 miles north due to climate change! Now many companies in the US in the fishing business will have to move farther and farther north each year. This will make it really hard to catch fish and these companies will most likely to go out of business.
