Abstract: The current global warming trends are extremely likely to be the result of human social and economic activity since the middle of the 20th century (NASA 2018). Evidence of rapid climate change varies and includes global average temperature increases, seawater temperature increases, ice sheet loss, glacier retreats, snowfall reduction, rising sea levels, the retreat of Arctic sea ice, and extreme events. In particular, the impacts of extreme events due to climate change, such as droughts, floods, and typhoons, along with the average temperature rise due to global warming, are especially important for considerations surrounding food security.
