Global Warming Gets Worse Threatens Food Supply

Data indicates that global warming is getting worse and threatening the world’s food supply.

The first six months of 2017 were the second-hottest on record NASDA data indicates, The Guardian reported. NASA scientists found that temperatures are nearly one degree (.94) Celsius higher than the 1950 to 1980 average.

What’s truly disturbing is that the only reason why the first six months of 2016 were a little hotter than the first six months of this year was the absence of El Nino, Guardian reporter Dana Nuccitelli noted. El Nino is a phenomenon in the Pacific that can distort weather patterns.

How Global Warming Threatens the World’s Food Supply

If the prospect of increased droughts and wildfires caused by climate change was not scary enough now there is the possibility of food shortages, The Washington Post Wonkblog reported. Research from the Chatham House think tank in London indicates that weather can disrupt global trade leading food shortages.

An example of this is in the United States where 60% of the nation’s food exports move through canals and rivers that can easily be blocked by floods. Since the United States is one of the world’s largest food exporters this can lead to serious problems. To make matters worse the backup systems to canals; railroads and canals are even more vulnerable to flooding.

Similar problems exist in Brazil where 17% of the world’s wheat, corn, ice and soybeans are exported through a handful of ports that can be washed out by rising oceans. Also vulnerable to weather are the roads and railroads that carry Brazilian crops to the ports.

Will LENR power the Hyperloop?

Therefore it is critical that the world switch to nonpolluting sources of energy such as low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) or cold fusion and nonpolluting transportation solutions such as the Hyperloop. Since the Hyperloop operates on electricity, and it would theoretically be faster than any existing form of ground transportation that system would eliminate vast amounts of greenhouse gases.

What’s truly exciting is that Hyperloop One just tested the world’s first full sized Hyperloop vehicle or pod at speeds of up to 192 miles (308.9 kilometers) per hour in North Las Vegas, Nevada. That means one potential solution to the climate change problem is almost here.

Now all we need is working LENR or something similar such as hot fusion. Hopefully somebody soon an LENR device will be powering the Hyperloop. That way we can have the first greenhouse-gas free transportation solution.
