Due to this, local weather alarmists are ignoring the all-time file crop manufacturing in India – so?

The record plant production in India belies the doomsday story of the climate alarmists. Unsurprisingly, the UN and the media ignore the remarkable achievement of this 1.4 billion country because it contradicts a religiously fervent political agenda.
As the world’s largest democracy improves global food security, the media spread the news of the UN’s “Code Red” for humanity through the flimsy report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in August that rising temperatures threaten the earth.
In fact, India’s record food production contradicts claims of adverse climatic effects on crops. Advertising – the story goes below
Countries around the world are experiencing improved environmental health: pollution has decreased in industrialized countries and nations are increasingly using their financial wealth to reforest and improve ecosystems, including the agricultural sector.
India surpassed last year’s crop production by a staggering 3.7 percent – 308 million tons for 2020-21 compared to 297 million tons previously True
The Department of Agriculture found that all major crops – including wheat, corn and oilseeds – saw record production this year. India also had the highest horticultural production ever in 2021, including fruits, vegetables, aromatic and medicinal plants, spices and plantation crops.
Several factors have contributed to the massive crop production, which is a welcome departure from the ongoing famine of the 1950s and 60s attributable to inadequate food crops. Advertising – the story goes below
In the 1970s, India’s agricultural sector entered the Green Revolution, spawned by Norman Borlaug’s improved, gene-edited plant varieties. With economic liberalization in the 1990s, the country further opened the doors for its agricultural sector to flourish, making it one of the world’s leading producers today.
It is also important that this remarkable success in food production would not have been possible without a favorable environment for the crops. What the media calls a curse – increased carbon dioxide levels and greater heat – has been a boon for farmers and consumers
Food crop yields – in India and around the world – have benefited from the fertilizing effects of carbon dioxide and the longer growing seasons due to the natural rise in temperature. Overall, agriculture was certainly not affected by the weather; otherwise, such bumper harvests would likely have been impossible.
India’s experience, for example, has allayed fears that the region is receiving insufficient rainfall due to climate change.
Precipitation data for the past 100 years shows that there has been no retrograde trend in the monsoons, with the rainfall pattern generally being largely unpredictable with the exception of a few brief periods of persistence. Advertising – History goes below
Cold weather – what climate doomed singers seem desperate to have – is the bane of the harvest.
In 2021, 80 to 90 percent of vineyards and orchards in parts of France died in what a government official described as the “greatest recent agricultural disaster”. In Brazil and Paraguay, too, cold waves in June and July reduced crop yields in many regions. Citrus fruits, sugar cane and coffee were hardest hit.

Today’s global average temperature contrasts favorably with the Little Ice Age of the 17th century. The gradual increase in heat since the 18th century has improved the environmental conditions for the flora.
Media reports about global warming that endanger global food security are therefore absurd. Real world data shows the modern climate has been a boon to crops. Advertising – the story goes below
There is no climate emergency. The earth and its people do indeed thrive in a time of relative warmth and abundance.
