How is Climate Change affecting carrots?
Studies show that changing rain patterns, Climate-Change related diseases, and warming oceanic regions could have a significant impact on the taste of foods such as carrots. The Scientists suspect that carrots could become tasteless as Climate Change worsens. One of the solutions being used by farmers is genetic modification. They are modifying the plants to be more susceptible to heat and other consequences of climate change. Something farmers are trying is planting at different times than before. Because the springs are shorter and it gets hotter earlier, the farmers will plant their crop earlier than before.
