Met Office Panic Forecast Climate Change Will Make It More Of The Same

Climate change: do you want the good news or the bad? - Climate Change - Environment - The Independent

Spain will be arid, with all of its agricultural land degraded. India will face a near-tripling of its flood risk. Virtually the whole population of Egypt will be hit with water shortages. But British farmers will find their crops much easier to grow – while their French counterparts will find it harder.

Such will be the varying fortunes of different countries by the end of the century if climate change is not brought under control, according to a new study by the Met Office

But Spain is already arid with goat ruined land, most of Egypt is a desert with not a lot of drinking water and parts of India flood, so what is new? The French farmers feel hard done by, quelle surprise!, and the British farmer gets more productive, situation normal.

"The French farmers feel hard done by, quelle surprise!, and the British farmer gets more productive..."

You missed the bit where the British farmer has his earnings confiscated to prop up the French farmer who doesn't actually grow anything.

It's called the Common Agricultural Policy, in case you didn't guess.
