Will this finally convince skeptics!? NEWSWEEK: ‘GLOBAL WARMING COULD WIPE OUT BREAKFAST CEREALS BY 2070’

-

Global warming could rapidly reduce the cultivation of wheat and rice, threatening the production of breakfast cereals along with half of all the calories consumed by humans.

A study looking ahead to 2070 found that climate change was occurring 5,000 times faster than certain grasses can adapt, New Scientist reported.

Wheat, rice, maize, rye, barley and sorghum are all edible grasses that yield nutritious grains. In many parts of the world and throughout history, wheat or rice famines have led to widespread starvation.

Experts predict evolutionary adaptation seems particularly unlikely for domesticated species and the result will be devastating for some human populations.
