Grantham on global warming and the food crisis: “Welcome to dystopia”

Jeremy Grantham, the hedge fund manager who’s urging scientists to speak more bravely about global warming, recently wrote an analysis of the long-term global food crisis we’re now in.

It is a chilling but important analysis, rightly titled, “Welcome to Dystopia“.

Joe Romm summarizes Grantham’s report:

We are five years into a severe global food crisis that is very unlikely to go away. It will threaten poor countries with increased malnutrition and starvation and even collapse. Resource squabbles and waves of food-induced migration will threaten global stability and global growth. This threat is badly underestimated by almost everybody and all institutions with the possible exception of some military establishments.
