Hot and hungry

Right now farmers around the world are going hungry. Droughts, floods and other natural disasters caused by climate change are stopping them from growing enough food to feed their families and make a living.

The makers of Pringles and Green Giant don’t seem to care. They don’t fully disclose most of their emissions, let alone set targets to reduce them. And they do business with companies that worsen climate change by burning down forests and over-using polluting fertilisers.

It doesn't have to be this way. If thousands of us demand that Kellogg and General Mills companies reduce their harmful emissions and call for other companies and governments to do the same, we could take the climate change out of our food.
