A USA Today blog post shows there is a bottomless well of taxpayer dollars — everywhere — available for global warming related research. If you are a scientist and can write a grant proposal that shows a potential climate impact for what you plan to study, it’s hard to believe you won’t get funded. Examples from the newspaper:
New Canadian research suggests climate change may be causing flowers to open before bees wake up from hibernation, so that the bees don’t get early nectar and the flowers aren’t pollinated. The findings could apply to a wide range of flowering plants such as tomatoes and strawberries.
In Stockholm, Sweden, a different report this week reveals how food security worldwide could be threated by erratic rainfall related to climate change. Experts meeting there for the World Water Week conference cite drought in Russia and floods in Pakistan as examples of unpredictable rainfall.
