Climate change food threat
May 6, 2011 |
Might climate change be partly to blame for my soaring grocery bills? A new study claims that climate change has curbed corn production over the past 30 years.
Although improvements in technology have increased yields, the rise was not as great as expected. The team behind the report think increased temperatures, as a result of climate change, slow crop growth. This could ultimately mean higher food prices for us all.
This research appears in the 5 May 2011 issue of Science, the journal of AAAS, the non-profit society.
