Climate change
 
Many countries contribute to climate change. Developed countries contribute with their energy and transport systems.

The changes in weather and crop production will affect everybody.

Climate changes could have enormous consequences such as food shortages (as crops fail), violent storms and more hurricanes, new pests and diseases, melting of icecaps, flooding of low lying areas (as sea levels rise), and the extinction of many plants and animals as conditions change.
