Cereals Will Get More Expensive Due To Climate Change
If your favorite cereal cost 20 percent more in coming years, would you buy it? Many people around the world eat breakfast cereals like Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes and others.
Every day we are effected by shifting weather patterns and extreme events such as floods and drought. However, we may not see the ramifications of these events immediately.
In coming years, “the prices of commodities like corn and rice are projected to double by 2030.” According to a report released from Oxfam America, the world’s 10 biggest food and beverage companies “emit so much greenhouse gas through their supply chains that if they were a single country, they would be the 25th most polluting in the world.”
So the climate changes we experience today affect food supplies which in turn increase prices, thus poverty and hunger will continue to grow. In fact, by 2050, 50 million more people will suffer from hunger. What can you do? Visit behindthebrands.org to make your voice heard.
