  • Energy Is the Economy; Shrinkage in Energy Supply Leads to Conflict 9 november, 2020
    It takes energy to accomplish any of the activities that we associate with GDP. It takes energy to grow food: human energy, solar energy, and–in today’s world–the many types of energy used to build and power tractors, transport food to … Continue reading →
  • Non-OPEC July Output up by 1.2% 25 november, 2020
    A post by Ovi at peakoilbarrel Below are a number of oil (C + C ) production charts for Non-OPEC countries created from data provided by the EIA’s International Energy Statistics and updated to July 2020. Information from other sources such as OPEC, the STEO and country specific sites such as Russia and Norway is […]
  • Offshore wind turbines: Expensive, risky, and last just 15 years 29 november, 2020
    Preface: The Department of Energy high wind penetration plans require a lot of offshore wind. But is it possible, affordable, or wise to do this? Corrosion leads to a short lifespan of just 15 years. To reduce maintenance, offshore windmills … Continue reading →

Klimatförändringen har nog redan påverkat livsmedelsproduktionen.

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Vi kommer ihåg sommaren 2018 och hur det varma och torra vädret fick konsekvenser med nödslakt och minskad mängd foder och lägre skördar. Vi kunde fortsätta konsumera till lite högre priser, men om det blir ett återkommande fenomen så kan även vi få svårt med försörjningen av livsmedel. Då detta är inte bara är ett lokalt problem utan vi kan se detta hända globalt också.
Denna video går in på detta, mer finns i rapporten längst ner.

Abstract
Crop yields are projected to decrease under future climate conditions, and recent research suggests that yields have already been impacted. However, current impacts on a diversity of crops subnationally and implications for food security remains unclear. Here, we constructed linear regression relationships using weather and reported crop data to assess the potential impact of observed climate change on the yields of the top ten global crops–barley, cassava, maize, oil palm, rapeseed, rice, sorghum, soybean, sugarcane and wheat at ~20,000 political units. We find that the impact of global climate change on yields of different crops from climate trends ranged from -13.4% (oil palm) to 3.5% (soybean). Our results show that impacts are mostly negative in Europe, Southern Africa and Australia but generally positive in Latin America. Impacts in Asia and Northern and Central America are mixed. This has likely led to ~1% average reduction (-3.5 X 1013 kcal/year) in consumable food calories in these ten crops. In nearly half of food insecure countries, estimated caloric availability decreased. Our results suggest that climate change has already affected global food production.
