"But according to another statistical analysis also published last week, global warming will eventually make even the hardiest crops less bountiful. Comparing variations in farming conditions and crop yields across the past four decades with temperature projections for 2050-2100, experts at Cornell University and New Mexico Tech concluded that heat stress from a warming planet will soon overtake soil moisture as the primary factor affecting crop yields in the United States. And in the best future predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change—in which carbon dioxide emissions basically peak tomorrow and average global temperature increases by less than 1.5 degrees Celsius—yields for the top six major US crops are predicted to decrease by 8 percent to 19 percent. In the worst scenario—a 5 degrees Celsius increase—projected yield losses reach nearly 50 percent."

You will be plenty fearful, soon enough.

nope, not at all.

your talking about a 0.1 degree F global rise over a 20 year period.

that happens in 5 min in any given day, and there is no disaster.

Yeah, Sergio wait until that ONE DEGREE temp rise since 1880 bakes all
the wheat in the field!

Sammy can't remember where he left his keys, let alone any science.

Yeah, Sammy that one degree rise in heat since 1880 will really turn a
wheat field into baked loaf of bread. And they allow a moron like you to
teach, even geezers?

"According to an ongoing temperature analysis conducted by scientists at
NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), the average global
temperature on Earth has increased by about 0.8° Celsius (1.4°
Fahrenheit) since 1880. Two-thirds of the warming has occurred since
1975, at a rate of roughly 0.15-0.20°C per decade."

Less than one degree! Did you ever notice how much temperature changes
from day to night or summer to winter you stupid fuck? Please take your
stupidity out of here since the adults are having a discussion of science.

Farming conditions in Canada should improve.

So, go north, young man. Learn to sing "O Canada", bow to the Queen, and root for the Raptors!

You make the false assumption that the soil is the same. And the growing season.

Simply stated, no they don't. Canadian wheat differs from USA wheat.

disagree, differences are too slight...

USA:
Hard red winter wheat (HRW) with 40% production, the flour variety
reported from the plains which extends from Texas north through
Montana.[17][18]
Hard red spring (HRS) wheat (also has a sub-classification of Dark
Northern Spring Wheat[15]) of high protein value, about 20% production
preferred for making bread is from the states of North Dakota, Montana,
Minnesota, and South Dakota.[17][18]
Soft red winter (SRW) wheat with an average production of 20% raised
in the states of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Washington, Oregon, Idaho,
Michigan, New York, and the Southeast, the flour from this wheat is used
in making cakes, cookies, and crackers.[17][18]
White wheat, which accounts for an average of 12.5% production in
the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Michigan, and New York with its
flour used in making products of noodle, crackers, cereals, and
white-crusted breads.[17][18]
Durum wheat, the preferred variety for making pasta; grown mostly in
the states of North Dakota and Montana to an average production level of
4%. The byproducts resulting from milling of all the above varieties is
used to feed animals.[13][17]

Canada:


Production
Canadian Wheat Quality Report (Canada Western Red Spring, Canada Western
Amber Durum, Canada Prairie Spring Red)

Within Canada, wheat is the most important cultivated crop (grown on an
average of over 10 million hectares), though canola is increasing in
significance. Only one class of durum is grown, amber durum; however,
there are several classes of common wheat, based on factors including
seed hardness and colour, sowing time (autumn or spring) and the region
where the varieties are grown.

Wheat has several uses, including flour for baked goods and pasta, and
feed for livestock. In addition, it is used to make beer, vodka and
biofuel. Wheat contains gluten protein, which forms minute gas cells
that hold carbon dioxide during fermentation, allowing dough to rise and
resulting in light bread. Importers of Canadian wheat often blend it
with weaker wheats before using it for bread. For this reason, much
effort goes into maintaining the strength and mixing qualities of
Canadian wheat. Maintenance involves controlling cultivars (i.e.,
cultivated species) grown and applying a comprehensive grading system.
Close to half of all Canadian wheat is grown in Saskatchewan, followed
by Alberta and Manitoba.

Yeah, sure, it is that magic force field at the Manitoba/North Dakota
border that makes the difference.
