Climate change threatens food security and world economies” (The Independent). This drastic warning by Professor Le Quere shows no one is immune to global warming. Change in climate will endanger world fragility and the global food supply. The effect of global warming will lead to war and famine, which are so far advanced that they threaten the existence of life on our planet.
