Are Weeds the Food of the Future?

Like many people trying to head off humanity’s descent into a possibly apocalyptic future, Lewis Ziska gets frustrated by ignorance. By 2050, there are projected to be 9 billion people in the world—a world in which climate change is projected to inflict serious damage on food production—especially, once again, in developing nations. Ziska thinks he might have found a way to help feed all those mouths: with weeds. Climate change will wither many of the crops that feed us, such as rice and wheat.

Poll: Democrats say climate change a bigger threat than ISIS

New data from the Pew Research Center indicates that self-identified Democrats are more concerned about global climate change than the threat posed by ISIS, the brutal terrorist army that has swept through much of Iraq and Syria in recent months. While 68 percent of Democrats say they view climate change as a “major threat” to the United States, 65 percent feel the same way about ISIS. For Republicans, the numbers are switched and the gap vastly larger: 78 percent are worried about ISIS, and only a quarter are bothered by the prospect of global climate change.

One In Four Republicans Say Global Warming Is ‘Major Threat’ To U.S.

One in four Republicans say global warming is a major threat to the U.S. Asked if they perceive global warming as a “major threat,” 25 percent of Republicans said yes in the survey of 1,501 adults conducted last week. A majority of Republicans said the other threats listed are major, such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and Iran’s quest for nuclear power, but more Democrats are concerned about global warming than any other threat. Sixty-seven percent said al-Qaida and other terrorist groups are a major threat, and 65 percent said ISIS is a major threat.   By contrast, 78 percent of Republicans said ISIS is a major threat.

Are You Ready for a 35-Year Drought?

A new study estimates that the possibility of a decade-long drought hitting the Southwest sometime this century could be as high as 90 percent. “This is only the beginning,” said Ault, whose research will be published next month in the Journal of Climate. It’s the first research that quantifies the risk of drought from reduced precipitation and drier conditions caused by climate change. The drought forecast in the Southwest—which the researchers define as central to southern California, Nevada, southern Arizona, southern Utah, New Mexico, southern Colorado, and western Texas—compares starkly with their predictions for northern states.
