In 2022 , there will be over a dozen climate disaster events with losses exceeding $1 billion, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The cotton harvest was hit hard by drought. Even oranges were blown off trees after Hurricane Ian in October 2022. Rice farmers in California have left grasslands empty for the absence of water, and cattle ranchers are sending more cows to slaughter because of these devastating hurricanes. Experts link climate change with drought and other severe weather that hurt some harvests in 2022.
