e know that migration linked to climate change transcends species. As the oceans get warmer, fish are looking for cooler waters to call home. Diseases are spreading to regions previously inhospitable to them. And the United Nations estimates that at least 25 million people will be displaced by deteriorating environmental conditions by 2050.

As it is practiced today, agriculture is one of the biggest environmental offenders – yet it is necessary for our survival. Agriculture contributes one-third of greenhouse gas emissions, uses 70% of freshwater resources, and harms wildlife through conversion and fragmentation of biodiversity-rich habitats, water diversions, pesticide poisoning and creation of oceanic dead zones.

Organically farmed food has a bigger climate impact than conventionally farmed food, due to the greater areas of land required. This is the finding of a new international study involving Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, published in the journal Nature.
