Scientists: Wheat and rice will disappear on Earth to 2070

Global warming might destroy many kinds of cereal crops to 2070.

Such food products as wheat and rice, which provide half of all calories consumed by humans, might disappear as a result of climate change. According to the research data, plants are not able to adapt to the rapid climate change.

It has been noted that the speed of climate change exceeds the plants’ ability to adapt in about 5 thousand times.

Scientists cannot predict what will happen to the world food stock as a result of global warning, but they warn about “alarming consequences”.

Scientists say that corn, rye, barley, sorghum and grass, which is used for cattle feeding in agriculture, might disappear in addition to rice and wheat. The lead author of the study says that the global warming can lead to a famine in some areas of our planet.

It is to be recalled that scientists predict the disappearance of coffee to 2080.
