Monsanto launches #CO2MUCH campaign: Combating Agriculture’s Carbon Footprint

Image of #CO2Much Campaign banner.Agriculture’s carbon footprint totals about six billion tonnes of greenhouse gases (GHGs) each year, making up 13% of global emissions. In fact, after the energy sector, agriculture is the world’s second-highest emitter.

Looking ahead, mitigating emissions and the effects of climate change will be crucial to preserving our planet. But with a growing global population and changing consumption habits, set to rise to over nine billion people by 2050, demand for food and in turn food production will also rise. With this in mind, it’s clear that reducing the impact of the agriculture sector will play a particularly crucial role in keeping global temperature targets below a 2oC rise.

That’s why Monsanto, in Europe and the rest of the world, is working to spread awareness and highlight to t...

Global Warming: New report warns of food security threat

By Aoife O’Halloran 

Global warming leads to extreme weather conditions, such as extreme drought in some areas and severe flooding in others around the globe. Together, they could conceivably wreak havoc with global food security, a new study warns.

According to a report by experts from the UK-US Taskforce on Extreme Weather and Global Food System Resilience, global food production will decrease dramatically in the next 25 years as a result of extreme weather conditions. Unless we do something, fast, this will lead to more people going hungry every day, since more than 800 million people – or one in every nine people on the planet – already suffer from hunger and our planet’s population continues to grow rapidly.
