Awaken from your nap 

Yet another massive UN report has been researched, written, and cast into the ceaselessly churning ocean of Internet information. There the report may well sink into oblivion, as so often happens with critical news.

But these well-researched collections of facts and expert insight scream to be recognized, remembered, and acted upon. “Wake up,” the world’s scientists are saying. Arise and take action now for food security.

The name of this latest report is enough to put people back to sleep, but the reality it describes demands acute wakefulness. Climate Change and Land: an IPCC special report on climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems.

Climate change will continue to generate more and more intense floods, drought, storms, and other types of extreme weather. Going to the heart of the matter, The New York Times headlined its story on the report Climate Change Threatens World’s Food Supply.



Cynthia Rosenzweig, a senior research scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, is a lead author of the report. She said that without swift action on a sweeping scale, climate change will accelerate the danger of severe food shortages. The window of opportunity to address this threat is closing rapidly.
