A very startling article has come out recently on the official UN’s report on climate change, and the results are startling.
The report lists off multiple statistics for what the world will face in 2050, but what really startled me is the anticipated 25% reduction in maize (corn). This is extremely shocking considering the importance that corn has in our food system. Acting as a food stock, it is in nearly everything; so having this resource deplete due to climate change will be devastating for the U.S.
It’s great that the United Nations has conducted this research, as now they can provide a worldwide platform to spread the truth about the effects human pollution has on the environment.
