  • The world has a major crude oil problem; expect conflict ahead 21 april, 2022
    World crude oil production has been falling behind needed levels since 2019. This problem, by itself, encourages the world economy to contract in unexpected ways, including in the form of economic lockdowns and aggression between countries. This crude oil shortfall seems likely to become greater in the years ahead, pushing the world economy toward conflict […]
  • By Gaia Gardener: On Suffering 15 maj, 2022
    Buried in the comments of the last post we discussed human overshoot and what should be done about it. I proposed our goal should be to minimize suffering and that the best path to achieving this goal is awareness of Ajit Varki’s Mind Over Reality Transition (MORT) theory. My view, in summary, is that when […]
  • States do not evolve from Bands to Tribes to Chiefdoms to States 15 maj, 2022
    Preface.  The bulk of this book is dedicated to showing why the idea of the evolution from tribes to states is false. If the authors are correct, then the flexibility of societies to invent ways of living with more freedom … 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.

Från sammanfattningen.

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.
