Extreme weather can lead to strong wind causing dust storms which removes the top soils and therefore affect agriculture.

also the change in the pattern of rainfall will definatelly lead to either heavy rainfall within a short time washing away the top soil or distroying the crops which in most cases solidify and hold the soil together.

also the water retention capacity is affected when the plants are not allowd to grow as a result of overgrazing, extreme temperature and coupled with intense human action on the soil .....

Humans have had the greatest impact on climate change by burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. This activity adds to the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, creating an enhanced greenhouse effect.

Global warming is now the major factor in climate change, I believe. Ergo, the impact of human life on earth has been the major factor in general climate change.

If there is a very cold, dry climate then the soil will not get the nutrients it needs to be heathly. But if the climate is warm and wet then the soil will be rich and full of nutrients.

i think its about the security, climate changes and famine if it is based on the community.

The climate can dry up or freeze the soil if to the right temperature

this is a stupid question

The soil that forms in a hot, wet climate is very different from the soil that develops in a cold, dry climate. Climate influences the characteristics of developing soil because the climate influences the weathering of the rock. The four soil types that develop in different climate regions are: tropical, desert, temperate, and arctic.

this is maybe cause by the several factor such as soil condition,climate,soil ph,overfertilize and many more

production of waste like greenhouse gases

Human activities change the surface of the Earth through climate change, and changing soil composition through application of fertilizers.

Although aviation is a relatively small industry, it has a disproportionately large impact on the climate system. It presently accounts for 4-9% of the total climate change impact of human activity.

many countries are flooded due to the climate change and also there are might be volcanoes,earthquakes,soil erosion,etc......this can cause many problems to people and their lives
