The climate alarmist echo chamber must have decided that this week will be national crop production alarmism week. As of Monday morning at 7:00 am Eastern, the top items for a Google News search on “climate change” are top-heavy with articles asserting global warming is destroying crop production all over the world. Yet the science is soundly settled and nothing could be farther from the truth.
In an article titled, “What You Can Do To Increase Food Security In The Face Of Climate Change,” Forbes columnist Joan Michelson writes, “Yes, climate change affects what you eat; you need look no further than how extreme weather and droughts have destroyed harvests and increased produce prices.”
Yet global crop yields are setting new records, yet again this year. This follows the past six years being the six highest years for crop production in human history. In fact, crop yields per acre are rising all over the world, setting new records almost every year. The facts demonstrate the complete opposite of Forbes lies about climate change destroying harvests, creating food shortages, and raising food prices.
The columnists at always-alarmist Forbes have developed a perfect recipe for manufacturing a climate crisis. Don’t worry about the facts; just make stuff up.
