UN Report: Shocked by Effects of Climate Change

A very startling article has come out  recently on the official UN’s report on climate change, and the results are startling.

http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-26810559

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.
