Climate change could lead to civil unrest

New study worries about the effects of global warming, ignores global cooling.

“Experts reveal the devastating effect multiple crop failures could have,” warns the Daily Mail. 

“Climate change is expected to generate heat waves and drought that could cause crop losses in most of the world’s breadbaskets,” the article continues.

Our planet’s top five major breadbaskets, China, the United States, India, Brazil and Russia, produce most of the staple crops – corn, wheat and rice – that feed the world.

Historically, when a crop failed in one of these breadbaskets, only nearby areas had to contend with shortages and rising prices, but today, production failures can have far-reaching impacts.

In the past several decades, many of the world’s major breadbaskets have experienced shocks – such as regional droughts and heat waves – that caused large, rapid drops in food production, which lead to substantial spikes in food prices.

Unfortunately, “there is increasing evidence that in very poor countries, food price increases and shortages can lead to civil unrest and worsen other social and political stresses.”

I find it incredible that they would be worried about global warming leading to crop losses, while ignoring the devastating effects of global cooling.

  1. We have a new Globalist Threat method coming up: The Decline of Insects.

    There has been many article about this in the last week. More than usual. I can see something building here and next, this decline will be blamed on MAN

    It very well could be. We are dumping artificial “pesticides” on every crop and perhaps the insects are drowning in RAID.

    BUT, they will link it to Globalist Warming for sure and may even go so far as to say the use of Pesticides is a result of Global Warming.

    They will never give up until THEY own all the land, all the resources, all the production, and the rest of us are slaves.

    That is the dream of the Aristocracy ever since the Renaissance and Protestant Revolution. They want CONTROL again. (They being the Kings and Popes of Europe)

  2. Still wondering if atmospheric mixing in the areas between the poles and the Tropics coupled with a warmer equatorial region and warmer poles might easily be misinterpreted as global cooling … any thoughts?

  3. If the left keeps pushing their global warming polemic and trying to silence voices that dissent, then yes, you can bet the farm that there will be civil unrest.

  4. oh dont worry they can regenerate the cold iceage foodloss items they used to run before they decided to use agw heating easily enough;-/
    the difference being thatc old WILL affect more crops than heat does

  5. I am just amazed at the logic, and lack of actually saying anything meaningful. They talk about 5 “breadbaskets,” talk about “what if,” then say “there is increasing evidence that in very poor countries, food price increases and shortages can lead to civil unrest and worsen other social and political stresses.”

    I personally am having a difficult time trying to actually stitch these thoughts together. Are they suggesting that there will be civil unrest in the “5 breadbasket” nations because there is evidence that it happens in poor countries? Civil unrest happens in most poor countries because those that “have” deny those that “don’t have” access to what they need. Most of the civil unrest in nations like Venezuela, as an example, is caused more by outside interference than by anything else, with the intent to deprive the poor of the essentials thus fomenting civil unrest.

    Too bad they couldn’t notice “that there is evidence that climate changes of its own accord, and that we don’t even know which way it is going to change at this time, but it favors the temperature going down.”

  6. These sorts of outlandish predictions have become all too common among the promoters of doom and gloom. They know next to nothing about agriculture. Where I farm–in Canada’s Great Lakes region–warm and dry normally leads to far better crop results than cool and wet.

    • Agreed, cool and wet has reduced the garden output for this year by about 30% After our cool wet windy Summer from July to October.
      Yet the Climate Police will once again claim its the warmest on record since records began in 1970!!!
      It was far, far warmer during the Eemian Interglacial, without any SUVs, coal electricity-generating system, with humans confined to Africa, and the rest of the minuscule CO2 human induced climate change activities not yet under way. At least they didn’t have Loonies like Gore adding to the heat values.

      At the peak of the Eemian, the Northern Hemisphere winters were generally warmer and wetter than now, though some areas were actually slightly cooler than today. The hippopotamus was distributed as far north as the rivers Rhine and Thames.[4] Trees grew as far north as southern Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago: currently, the northern limit is further south at Kuujjuaq in northern Quebec. Coastal Alaska was warm enough during the summer due to reduced sea ice in the Arctic Ocean to allow Saint Lawrence Island (now tundra) to have boreal forest, although inadequate precipitation caused a reduction in the forest cover in interior Alaska and Yukon Territory despite warmer conditions.[5] The prairie-forest boundary in the Great Plains of the United States lay further west near Lubbock, Texas, whereas the current boundary is near Dallas, Texas. The period closed as temperatures steadily fell to conditions cooler and drier than the present, with 468-year-long aridity pulse in central Europe 116 000 BC,[6] and by 112 000 BC, a glacial period had returned.

      As it will here in a not far away time frame.

    Heatwaves and drought are far more likely during a Grand Solar Minimum due to the Meridional nature of weather systems during the GSM period. European, Chinese and Asian history is littered with major famines and droughts date aligned with GSM periods
    During Dalton – a GSM cold period several million people died in India and China due to famine.
    1789–92 Doji Bara famine or Skull famine India 11 million
    1810, 1811, 1846, and 1849 Four famines in China China 45 million.[64]
    1811–12 Famine devastated Madrid [65] Spain 20,000[66]
    1815 Eruption of Tambora, Indonesia. Tens of thousands died in subsequent famine Indonesia 10,000
    1816–17 Year without a Summer Europe 65,000
    Check the above famine dates with those of the named GSMs
    LALIA 585 – 650AD
    400–800 AD Various famines in Western Europe associated with the Fall of the Western Roman Empire and its sack by Alaric I. Between 400 and 800 AD, the population of the city of Rome fell by over 90%, mainly because of famine and plague.[6] Western Europe
