|Science Art-Nature presents Challenges of Climate Change|
The links between industrial agriculture (large-scale farming, often utilizing chemicals) and climate change are multi-fold: Production is typically large-scale, energy-intensive and fossil-fuel based and thus contributes significantly to the warming of the planet. In central Wisconsin where I live, many fields cleared for farming were once thriving forests and home to carbon-capturing trees. Today, species, such as the Kirtland’s Warblers, that breed there are now severely endangered.
