Climate Change and Rise in Food Prices
We’ve talked about the projected rise in food prices here before, so when Zach posted a video on the topic over at our sister site, Planetsave, I couldn’t resist sharing it with you guys, too.
The UN Food and Agricultural Organization is predicting a continued rise in food prices in 2011. Severe floods and droughts, many of which scientists attribute to climate change, are contributing to higher prices for key food commodities like grain.
As food prices continue to climb, it’s easy to feel a little bit helpless, but don’t despair! Now is the time to start growing some of your own food, if you haven’t already and look into ways to eat well on a budget.
