Rice, a crucial food source for billions of people—is less nutritious when grown under higher carbon dioxide concentrations. Its stores of protein, iron, zinc and some important B vitamins all decline.
That’s a potential concern for public health, the authors say, particularly in poorer nations where rice makes up a large proportion of people’s diet."

The warmers are trying to get ahead of studies showing increased CO2 increases plant yields and green vegetation in general.

In other words, yes, there will be more rice, but it won't quite as nutritious as the pre-CO2 rice.

Well......that settles it.

I'm going to have to start walking everywhere I go, stop using all fossil fuels, eat only locally sourced vegetables and kill all the cows so they won't fart anymore.

On a list of things to worry about -- this one falls somewhere between 500, and infinity.

Fun fact: this was the latest scientific study that the Trump administration tried to suppress.

Beyond the CO2 the warmer weather and droughts is having an impact on food supplies worldwide.

Comrade Trump and his cronies tried to bury the results of this study Soviet Union style. Lewis Ziska, an author on the paper and USDA scientist, recently quit because of it. Why do you trust Trump over scientists?
