Global Warming and Crop Production: A Guide for Policymakers

Bullet Points:

  • Longer growing seasons, warmer temperatures, and more atmospheric carbon dioxide are creating ideal crop conditions.
  • Global crop yields are setting new records almost every year as our planet warms.
  • U.S. crop yields are setting new records almost every year as our planet warms.
Short Summary: A warmer climate with more atmospheric carbon dioxide is creating ideal growing conditions. U.S. and global crop yields are setting new records almost every year as our climate modestly warms. Plants are also growing more efficiently and need less water thanks to increased CO2 in the atmosphere. Thanks in large part to global warming and more CO2, global farmers are producing more food on less land to feed a growing global population.
