Quoting from Ycon:
"Global warming may have a positive economic impact on agriculture. Longer growing seasons, fewer frosts and more precipitation and other things
could benefit farmers."
Also, huge new territories could then be cultivated for the first time, like Siberia and northern Canada. On the other hand, other lands would dry
up. The problem is how to calculate the global gains vs. the losses. In the end, will there have been more of the former, or more of the latter?
