15 Food You Won’t Be Able To Eat In Future Due To Climate Change

11Beans

These filling legumes are full of proteins and feed the majority of the population of Africa and Latin America. According to a report by CIAT, climate change is taking a serious toll on bean production. Rising temperatures are affecting seed production and flowering and reducing yields by almost 25per cent. Rain, storm, and floods are becoming more unpredictable and this will destroy the harvest too.

12Wheat

Wheat requires cooler temperatures to grow. B every 1 degree Celsius rise in the temperature, wheat yield reduces by 6 percent. This is highly problematic as wheat is essentially, the staple of the world. All sorts of bread, flour, and baked goods will be extinct. According to a study by Kansas University, 1/4th of our global wheat production will reduce.

14Maple syrup

Maple syrup is made from the sap of the sugar maple tree. In winter the tees need freezing temperatures to facilitate the contraction and expansion process which produces the sap. Due to higher temperatures, the sap is flowing sooner. Trees in cooler regions will survive while those in warmer areas will die, further reducing production.

15Seafood

Climate change is not restricted only to affecting the land. Since the start of the Industrial Revolution, greater CO2 has been produced, making the oceans almost 25 percent more acidic. Calcifying organisms like oysters and clams will have weaker shells due to the acidification. A whole range of seafood will eventually die out.
