In 10 seconds? Human-caused climate change has a complex impact on the world’s food supply. A good example is an analysis of weather-influenced wheat and maize yields in six European countries showing dramatic drops and increases.
What were the findings? The study tracked yields for the six countries from 1960 to 2014. It found major differences in how the weather impacted wheat yields: in Germany, they declined by 30% whereas they rose by 66% in the UK.
