Over fifty-three million residents of India are at the risk of protein deficiency by the year 2050. The reason being,carbon-dioxide emissions from humans. People of India will have protein deficiency due to the decrease in the organic nutrition value of certain crops. Those crops include wheat crops, rice crops, and other food crops. Scientist are predicting that carbon dioxide levels will continue to rise due to global warming. Recent reports say eighteen percent of India’s country will lose 5 per cent of their nutritional need of protein.
Researchers at the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health estimates that even more people are risk of having lower amounts of food available. That number of people is close to 150 million. The senior scientist at Harvard Samuel Myers says that the recent survey reports the need for countries all over the world to make a change. Also to be aware of their involvement with CO2 emissions. Samuel Myers also expressed the need for all countries to change the human-caused CO2 emissions. It is a fact that we as a human race get around seventy-six percent of our daily protein from plants.T
People Of India Feeling The Effects Of Global Warming When It Comes To Crops
The researchers gathered future information by combining databases from crops and how the high concentrations of carbon dioxide with world nutrition intake information. Both came together as a measure of income inequality and demographics from the United Nations. The results from the increase in carbon dioxide will affect the protein contents various different crops. Those crop include of potato crops, rice crops, barley crops and wheat crops. The effect will be at numbers of 6.4 percent, 7.6 percent, 7.8 percent and 14.1 percent.
The recent study done at Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health only proves that there will be constant challenges for other places in the world. Not only will India be effect but countries such as Sub Saharan Africa, South Asian and other places worldwide.
