Earth may be 2.4 degrees Celsius warmer by 2020, potentially triggering global scrambles for food supplies, according to a new analysis.
Work from the Universal Ecological Fund, the U.S. branch of Argentina-based nonprofit Fundación Ecológica Universal (FEU), sketches a somber portrait for world hunger by the end of the decade.
A climate change study that projected a 2.4 degree Celsius increase in temperature and massive worldwide food shortages in the next decade was seriously flawed, scientists said Wednesday.
The study was posted on the website of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and was written about by numerous international news agencies, including AFP.
But AAAS later retracted the study as experts cited numerous errors in its approach.
The public relations firm that issued the report on the UEF's behalf said the group stands by the study and would issue a statement to that effect.
I read the article and thought of many of the same points that have been made in replies.
The fact is, even the IPCC reports don't reflect this alarmist type of attitude toward our future.

What I think is utterly silly is that I live in an area that has always produced food for the UK and is now a friggin national park (oh nice and pretty for the elite :dn
Most of our breeds have been important.. like the Sussex Chicken, Cattle and Southdown Sheep and yet all these multiple purpose breeds are rare
Regardless of climate change, we have taken all resilience out of our food production and been left vulnerable to any changes or disasters..
