Food Fight! Food Fight!


Climate change will increasing threaten our food sources via drought, spreading crop diseases, and harming vital pollinators. Wikipedia.

Food Fight! Food Fight! is what’s going to happen globally, warns the head of the World Bank as global warming increases crop failures, echoing the conservative report on climate change by the reputable Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which warns of a breakdown of food systems as climate change worsens.

The report notes climate change impacts already on failing crops due to intensifying droughts and spreading crop diseases, and warming temperatures could dry out one third of the planet.

Climate change is also harming bees, important pollinators of food crops. For now, scientists are urging people worldwide to save substantial energy by eating less meat and dairy, the production of which generates a lot of global warming gases.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
