Independent Learning Log 4 by Chris

Independent Learning Log

Date: 17th June 2016


What I did:
Wanted to know more about how climate change is impacting us today. So I read this article about droughts that are affecting the crops.

California's droughts have cost the agricultural sector a lot of money in 2015 alone and we may be seeing more of this in the future. This causes more food security problems.

A team of researchers gathered data to find out more whether how bad this really is. After analysing the chunks of data, they have finally come to a conclusion. They discovered that droughts and extreme heat reduce cereal production by 9 to 10 percent in countries they strike. By contrast, they couldn't find much of an effect from floods or extreme cold.
