The emission of greenhouse gases due to  burning non-renewable energy resources is considered to be the largest negative impact on global climate change.  Agriculture as practiced globally today is identified as contributing over 20% of all greenhouse emissions worldwide. 

Agriculture is also negatively impacted by global climate change due to changes in the distribution of rainfall, changes in the chemical composition of the atmosphere directly aggravating soil's salinity, erosion and desertification.
