Climate Shock: Record US and World Crop Production Destroys Climate Hysteria By Vijay Jayaraj

Climate alarmists have long claimed that increasing global temperatures are destroying crops and causing serious disruption to agriculture. But data from US agricultural production shows otherwise.

America is the largest producer of corn and soybean in the world. It is also the third-largest producer of wheat. Like any crop, these are sensitive to extreme climatic conditions. A severe drought or extreme winter can adversely impact them.

However, there is no evidence of an increase in the frequency of extreme weather conditions in recent decades. To the contrary, crops all over the world have found more favorable conditions to flourish in the past six decades.

Optimum temperature levels and a high concentration of carbon dioxide have aided plant growth globally.

Cereal crops are no exception, and all major studies have proved that there is a very strong positive correlation between plant growth and carbon dioxide, especially for the world’s four most consumed crops—rice, maize, wheat, and soybean.

Cereal production in the US is at a record high (475 million metric tons in 2016), after a continuous upward trend for the past 50 years.

According to the USDA, soybean supplies reached record highs in 2017/2018 and are expected to climb another 3% to 4875 million bushels in 2018/2019.
