Expect food prices to go up at the end of the summer. But, are there long term impacts from this year’s droughts??

theweekmagazine:

The National Climatic Data Center said this week that more than half of the U.S. spent June in a moderate or extreme drought, the widest incidence of drought in half a century. Some numbers to put things into perspective:

26 — States that have been declared natural disaster areas due to the weather this summer

3,215 — Daily U.S. heat records broken in June

46 — Days without rain in Indianapolis, In., from June 1 through July 16, breaking a record set in 1908

38 — Percent of U.S. corn crops in poor or very poor shape, according to the USDA
