Food will become less nutritional and expensive
Food will become scarce, grocery prices will spike and crops will lose their nutritional value due to the climate crisis, according to a major report on land use from the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
The climate crisis will also change what kinds of crops farmers can grow. Some climates will become too hot for what farmers are growing now. Some climates will see more flooding, more snow, more moisture in the air, which will also limit what can be grown.
High-income countries will likely be able to cope, but areas like Sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia and India will become even more vulnerable. The rural poor are the least able to adapt
