Climate Change is Turning Your Produce Into Junkfood

Came across this article today. This article discusses the implications that Global Warming ie: Climate Change will have on our environment from an increase in the growth of stronger more resistant Weeds to less nutritious crops.



Wheat and rice may have less zinc, iron, and protein in the future.




Climate skeptics like to point out that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere stimulates plant growth—suggesting that ever-growing fossil fuel consumption will lead to an era of bin-busting crop yields. But as I noted last week, the best science suggests that other effects of an over-heated planet—heat stress, drought, and floods—will likely overwhelm any bonus from CO2-rich air. Overall, it seems, crop yields will decline.

And here's more bad news: In a paper published in Nature this month, a global team has found that heightened levels of atmospheric carbon make key staple crops wheat, rice, peas, and soybeans less nutritious.


Looks like we need to start stocking up on Iron and Zinc pills in order to stay healthy.


" Symptoms of zinc deficiency include stunted growth, appetite loss, impaired immune function, hair loss, diarrhea, delayed sexual maturation, impotence, hypogonadism (for males), and eye and skin lesions; while iron deficiency brings on fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, and headache.


What say ATS?

It is exactly what I would expect to hear from the doom porn queens of AGW.

Sounds plausible, but all we can do is wait and see, the train is rollin and nothing so far is going to stop it, other than nature itself.

"Will have"? Oh, good. For a minute I thought it was something we have to be concerned about right now.

See how that propaganda works on us? Global warming is something that we need to be concerned about, but not right now.

I read our soil is already depleted. That apples in the 50s were the equivalent of two from today. That's just the nature of not using best farming practices.

I wonder, how much of that will have to do with 'climate change,' and how much will be from genetic modification? Makes you wonder.

Edited: Anthropogenic Global Warming. Wiki is a snooze.

I know little to nothing on this subject however when " Carbon Credits " are added to the mix I become
very very suspect. I await the day when my utility bill reflects the offset cost the Utility Company spends on said " Carbon Credits.

www.cbsnews.com/news/what-is-carbon-credit/


". In 2007, the trade
market for C02 credits hit $60 BILLION worldwide — almost
double the amount from 2006. "


Out of thin air someone has manager to develop an instrument which involves LOTS of money.

you mean you will be eating gm # with no nutrition in it without knowing and the weather will get the blame.

This supposed "science" goes against everything that we currently understand with the historic development and evolution of the planet... on the whole.

Higher levels of CO2 during various times throughout earth's history (one example is the Cambrian Explosion period), with levels that ran as high as 3000 - 4000 ppm.

It's currently thought that these levels are what enabled/aided life to not only propagate, but actually flourish and then some.

Are these guys actually saying that all plants (veggies, etc) grown in greenhouses are nutrient deficient ??

Most commercial greenhouses increase their CO2 levels to anywhere from 500 - 1000 ppms on average to aid plant growth...



So with that in mind, I highly highly question this claim to fame.... In fact, the linked write-up sounds like nothing more than a biased opinion piece based on very little science.

It's been so moderate here that the tomatoes have yielded fruit as big as your head. I think we had 3 days above 90 this summer. I welcome this nice change. But let me guess…there's money involved, tax money, big big money, and power for the sake of power is at stake. Well, soon they will tax the color of your roof tiles. They already hit the solar panel crowd. Is there nothing that will convince you otherwise?

Wait until the freeze comes, and then remind me of your methane and AGW woes again. It's twice as hard to stick to lies when God is punishing you even as you speak.

The changes are happening; accelerating more and more as the years go by, it seems. This type of thing does happen naturally but man is making it happen faster in my opinion.

I suppose it will clear the future blame from the GMO crop companies such as Monsanto to the Climate change groups.
But HOW does it explain the amounts of nonfood stuffs or nutritionally dead food already out in the markets?
I bet they wont ask about all the chemicals already in the food and water supply. Eh? EH?
