    Exclamation So … if some people conceed that Global Climate Change is a Hoax!

    Then will these same people at least agree that our aging Infrastructure needs to be strengthen to withstand increased Natural Disasters?

    Because guess who believes in Global Climate Change … Insurance Companies!

    If you don’t believe me, just watch how much it’s going to cost to rebuild and maintain that same home on The New Jersey Shore.

    It's not global warming anymore, TM, not even global cooling, just climate change nowadays.

    And no one denies climate change.

    The question is what causes it, and what we can do about it.

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Climate change to affect food crops...

    Climate Change Could Alter Global Eating Habits
    November 05, 2012 - Climate change might force changes in diets around the world as certain staple foods become harder to produce, according to international agriculture researchers.
    However, future shortfalls could be offset by switching to crops which can thrive in those altered climates, according to new reports by the Consultative Group on International Agriculture Research. Important crops like maize and wheat produce less grain at temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius. “Those kinds of temperatures are being reached on a regular basis and more frequently in many countries now,” says Sonja Vermeulen, head of CGIAR climate change research.

    Widespread changes

    Vermeulen says growing-season temperatures are not the only factors affected by climate change. Rainfall patterns are shifting, too. Water supplies will be strained in some areas, while others will see more floods. Climate change is also altering habitats for pests and diseases, she says. "And for some crops, particularly crops we really value, such as potatoes, we think those are really likely to increase and change in their patterns in the future.” Rice will not be spared, either. Higher temperatures, salt water encroachment, more flooding and more droughts are likely as the climate changes.

    Maize vs. millet

    Some crops in some regions will be able to adapt, “But for others, we’re really going to have to think about switching out of growing some crops entirely,” Vermeulen says. For example, by later this century large parts of Africa will no longer be suitable for growing maize. Sorghum, millet and cassava are becoming better options. “And when you start thinking through all that, it means changes in people’s diets," she says. "And these are fairly fundamental cultural changes.”

    Vermeulen and her colleagues have just released two reports outlining the predicted impacts of climate change on food production, and also on food safety. She says warmer temperatures will mean foods will spoil faster. “This is something we haven’t thought a lot about, these kinds of infections that can harm humans that really might be on the increase,” she says.

    Global vs. local
