Climate change is one of the most serious and far-ranging forces affecting life on this planet today, and will continue to be. Conditions created by climate change will vary across the globe and affect critical regions in different ways: drought, flood, extreme weather events, crop failure, acidic oceans, fishery collapse, starvation and disease for both humans and animals. The cascading effects of these changes are already creating instability and conflict over essential resources, and in some regions will create major migrations of people trying to meet essential human needs.
