Such climate changes never attained any fearful proportions and hence the there were no serious treats for the sustainment of life on earth till the last few centuries. An Inconvenient Truth was a documentary film directed by Davis Guggenheim, in 2006, in which former United States Vice President Al Gore tried to educate the citizens about the necessity of preventing global warming. He has mentioned that it is crucial to change the attitude and behavior of the public to counter the climate change problems. In his opinion, climate change problems should be taken as a moral one rather than a political one (An Inconvenient Truth, 2006)
But over the last few decades, the balancing between the energy liberated from the sun and the energy reached on earth was destroyed seriously because of many known and unknown reasons and as a result extreme weather conditions started to appear on earth’s atmosphere/surface. Even though the exact reasons for the climate changes on earth is still unknown or controversial, many people believe that the destructions forests, injudicious industrialization, long- and short-term variations in solar intensity, deviations in the Earths orbit, mountain-building and continental drift, and changes in greenhouse gas concentrations etc are the major reasons for the drastic climate changes on earth’s surface. In short, “climate change is already happening and represents one of the greatest environmental, social and economic threats facing the planet” (Climate change, 2010).
Climate changes can affect the human life on earth in many ways. In this paper the climate change impacts on local food production in Nah Trang, Vietnam is described. Nah Trang sits within a coastal province in south central Vietnam with an area of 3352.27 km2, coastline of 105km and annual rainfall of 600mm. Shrimp farming is one of the major revenue source for the people in Nah Trang. The lack of

This issue is extremely important because it can cause a lot of damage to human beings if nothing is done about it in the future. It can have life-threatening ramifications should nothing be done about it immediately. Methane is another very important greenhouse gas, large quantities of methane is produced by domesticated animals which again directly affects the environment.
Innovation and the development of new farming techniques have greatly increased our capacity to produce food. With a growing population, farmers and scientists are working diligently to get ever-greater quantities of staple products such as wheat, soybeans and corn from each acre.
Climatic change is a long term change in its statistical properties for about a decade or even millions of years. It can occur for number of reasons which takes the issue into deeper aspects of changes and its reasons. A climatic change somehow depends on the Human Activity in this living world and it is inter related to whatever activity is done somehow affects the weather, it can either be a positive change or a negative change which can also be alarming for the social beings living on this globe.
In fact, the changes in climate are posing a significant risk on the agriculture, food and water suppliers while the effort of alleviating poverty, diseases and food insecurity are put on stake, while lives of many citizens in under developed countries are being affected.
Some people argue that human activities are causing global warming whereas others are of the view that solar variations are causing global warming. In any case, it is a fact that global warming and climate change problems are causing huge problems to people, animals, agriculture and environment.
Different populations have confronted climate change and adjusted to it since the evolution of species. The vast majority of that period is forgotten and can merely be recreated through proxy or archaeological studies, which have a great deal to contribute to current knowledge of earlier human alleviation of and adjustment to climate change.
The discipline of science has argued that climate change creates a huge risk to the ecosystem and many species that inhibit in it. In this respect, it is important to note that the problem of global warming has had a tremendous impact on water sources across the world.
One of the drivers of climate change was pinpointed to stem from deforestation. According to Nix, deforestation is “the removing or clearing of a forest to include the cutting of all trees, mostly for agricultural or urban use. The remaining land, as per definition, is not reforested but is usually converted to a non-forest classification” (Nix, 2013, p.
Global warming is the long-term and short-term influence on the climate that leads to increased greenhouse gas emission causing adverse impacts on the biological and physical systems. The menace is referred to as global warming because temperatures rise above the normal limits to melt the snows leading to rising in sea levels and ocean acidification.
