Science Daily gives the very real economic realities of Global Warming on the people of the third world. These problems have already made themselves known, we don’t have to wait for the future.
“Most people tend to think of climate change as something that will impact the future,” said Christopher Field, co-author on the study and director of Carnegie’s Department of Global Ecology in Stanford, Calif. “But this study shows that warming over the past two decades has already had real effects on global food supply.”
And David Lobell, lead author of the study and a researcher at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, adds:
“A key to moving forward is how well cropping systems can adapt to a warmer world. Investments in this area could potentially save billions of dollars and millions of lives.”
