Your Fault: ‘Climate Change’ Could Maybe Possibly Require More Robot Farmers

Climate change could accelerate demand for robot farmers

It’s harvest season in the Northern hemisphere, so farmers head into the fields to gather the fruit of their hard labor ….

A few days ago, a boxy yellow robot rolled through the rows of yellow pepper patches in a Belgian greenhouse, spotting and picking the ripened fruit …. Named SWEEPER, the robot is a result of a collaboration between Israeli, Dutch, Swedish, and Belgian scientists—a complex piece of equipment aimed to help farmers and agricultural workers in the harvesting process ….

As the climate changes, heat waves intensify, and humidity increases, working long hours in the field is becoming more unhealthy, and in some cases dangerous, for humans. Even greenhouse conditions, tailored to the plants’ needs, may in some cases be too hot or humid for people. According to reported data, from 1992 to 2006, 68 crop workers in the United States died from exposure to environmental heat.

It’s reported that 7,000 died from dust pneumonia during the dust bowl event of the 1930’s. The numbers of those who died from the heat are too all over the place to even know. That was during the safe time when CO2 was under 350ppm, and before fossil fueled vehicles were truly a factor. Regardless, this is just another attempt to Scare people from people who themselves refuse to make more than minor changes in their own lives to match their professed beliefs.

    This outcome should make Con Men happy (one of the few things not involving mayhem that does)!

    Robots picking fruits and vegetables reduces the need for immigrant pickers. And even more profits for the corporate growers and machine manufacturers. It’s a NuCon win-win!

    “As heat waves intensify…” Except they’re not. More panic for profit.
