Climate change talking points

  • Food prices will rise across the board because of climate change, but the most dramatic global price increase will be for corn, according to the International Food Policy Research Institute.
  • As climate change negatively affects food security, the number of hungry people in Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to rise from 24 percent to 40 or 50 percent by 2050, according to the International Food Policy Research Institute.
