Cli­mate change threat­ens food pro­duc­tion, study says

The Peterborough Examiner - - CANADA & WORLD -

About 90 per cent of hu­man­ity faces poorer har­vests and smaller catches if fight­ing cli­mate change doesn’t dras­ti­cally ramp up, says re­search pub­lished Wed­nes­day.

And while Canada may be one of the only coun­tries where pro­duc­tion of grain and fish could in­crease, Cana­di­ans shouldn’t feel smug, says study co-au­thor Wil­liam Che­ung from the Univer­sity of Bri­tish Columbia.

“We are living in the same world. Ev­ery­thing is con­nected. Any coun­try that thinks they would be able to iso­late them­selves from any prob­lems or im­pacts in other coun­tries is un­re­al­is­tic,” Che­ung said.
