Doom: ‘Climate Change’ To Destroy Your Popcorn Habit

Despite there being continuous record crops for corn (and we won’t mention how so much of that food is wasted by turning it into low-powered, almost worthless fuel), doom is coming

Climate Change Will Destroy Your Popcorn Habit

If you were planning on munching on popcorn while the world burns around you, archaeologists have some bad news.

A new study, published Thursday in the journal Science, indicates that unless we act, and act fast, climate change could threaten everybody’s favorite meme-able snack: popcorn.

The new research, which looks at the evolution of maize in the United States over thousands of years, indicates that the corn’s adaptation to new climates was a slow process. And even with modern technology, it seems helping corn adapt to our rapidly changing world won’t be easy.

Corn has been around for 10,000 or more years, has survived multiple warm periods throughout the Holocene, but, now it’s doomed? These people are nuts.
