The Foods We’ll ‘Lose’ With Climate Change

According to The Guardian, there are some “foods you’re about to lose due to climate change.”

Among these foods we are collectively about to lose are beans, cherries, cocoa beans, coffee, and corn.

Here are the global trends in both yield and total production since 1990 for these five foods, using data from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) database.

Over the past quarter-century, yields of all crops have increasing trends, with the sole exception of coffee – whose yield is constant, with neither a decreasing nor increasing trend.  Production of each crop has an increasing trend.  There are no signs of either decreasing yield nor production trends.
